Content
There is an urgent need to decarbonize various industry sectors, including transportation; however, this is difficult to achieve when relying solely on today’s lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology. A lack of sufficient supply of critical materials—including lithium, nickel, and cobalt—is a major driving force behind the research, development, and commercialization of new battery chemistries that can support this energy transition. Many emerging chemistries do not face the same supply, safety, and often durability challenges associated with Li-ion technology, yet these solutions are still very immature and require significant development effort to be commercialized.
This chapter identifies and evaluates various emerging battery chemistries suitable for deployment in the automotive industry and describes the advantages, disadvantages, and development challenges for each identified technology. Additionally, the chapter outlines development timelines, contending that, to benefit from these new technologies in a decade or so, commercialization needs to begin today. That includes de-risking critical material supply chains and developing circular approaches. Finally, the chapter proposes policy interventions to enable the development of these new solutions and to allow those immature technologies to compete with well-established Li-ion batteries.
