LFP in energy storage

Lithium-ion batteries play an essential role in the transition to renewable energies and in generating electricity from more reliable and sustainable technologies. Even though NMC is currently the most mature existing technology, and it is therefore widely used, especially in the automotive industry, LFP technology is increasing in popularity due to cost and safety advantages.

<h2>Why LFP batteries are playing an increasing role in energy storages and the implications of this on battery analytics</h2>



<p>Lithium-ion batteries are an integral part of the transition  to  renewable  energy,  both  for  the automotive sector’s transition to green mobility, and  for  the  transition  to  generating  electricity from more reliable and sustainable technologies.   As   renewable energy   sources such  as  solar  and  wind  are  intermittent and therefore unreliable   power   sources,   energy must  be  stored  for  certain  periods  of  time. Technologies  are  required  to  stabilize  the  grid by ensuring that energy is released into the grid or removed from the grid when necessary.</p>

<p>Two major lithium-ion technologies are currently used in the field of stationary energy storages: NMC   (Nickel   Manganese   Cobalt)   and   LFP (Lithium  Iron  Phosphate).  While  people  often speak  about  NMC  and  LFP  cells,  this  naming describes only one half of the active materials in the  cells.  NMC  and  LFP  refer  to  the  cathode material  of  the  cells.  The  anode  part  is  often neglected  as  it  usually  consists  of  graphite  in both  cases  and  therefore  does  not  need  a further   distinction. The   set-up   oflithium-ion batteries isexplained in more detail below.</p>

<p>NMC   is   currently   the   most   mature   existing technology,  and  it  is  therefore  widely  used, especially in the automotive industry due to its beneficial specific energy and ideal combination of reasonable lifetime, safety,and reliability.</p>
