    1. Saft Seanergy® energy storage systems are now approved by the Norwegian Maritime Authority

      Saft Seanergy® energy storage systems are now approved by the Norwegian Maritime Authority

      Paris, October 19, 2016 – Saft has obtained approval of its Seanergy® marine energy storage system by the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) for use in a variety of hybrid and fully electric propulsion applications. Saft is the only manufacturer of marine lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries to use the Li-ion Super-Phosphate® (SLFP) chemistry which offers the highest levels of safety, performance and reliability. The approval process was based on simulated thermal runaway tests carried out on the Seanergy® systems by an independent laboratory in August 2016. During the propagation test 1, a cell was forced into a thermal runaway situation by a specific device inserted inside the cell. The test was performed three times. Thanks to the Super-phosphate® chemistry, the batteries passed the test on each occasion with no uncontrolled event, no fire and no explosion, with nearby cells remaining in a safe condition and no propagation to neighboring modules and without any active means of fire suppression.

    2. Are Lithium-Ion Batteries Reaching the Point of Diminishing Returns?

      Are Lithium-Ion Batteries Reaching the Point of Diminishing Returns?

      A soon-to-be-released study from a supercapacitor manufacturer claims lithium-ion batteries could be reaching their physical energy density limits, calling their future usefulness into question. Using a “first-principles analysis,” Wolfgang Mack, vice president of business development at Menlo Park-based Capacitor Sciences, argues lithium-ion technology has reached 87 percent of its commercially achievable cell limit for energy density.

      Stem CTO: Lithium-Ion Battery Prices Fell 70% in the Last 18 Months

      Tesla's battery factory gets a lot of attention. When completed, the so-called Gigafactory will manufacture more lithium-ion batteries each year than were produced globally in 2013. That will help push prices further downward. But a few other large producers -- LG Chem, Panasonic and Samsung -- are already making batteries at unprecedented scale. There are numerous giga-scale factories producing cells and battery packs for electric cars and stationary applications throughout Asia. And the recent wave of capacity is already impacting pricing in a big way. According to Larsh Johnson, the chief technology officer of Stem, the company is paying 70 percent less for lithium-ion batteries than it was 18 months ago.
