Sodium-metal halide batteries for stationary applications

Richard Bourgeois



Batteries based on sodium-metal halide chemistry have a long history in electric vehicle applications. Their high specific energy, power density, and long cyclic life have led to further development of the technology for critical stationary applications such as uninterruptible power systems (UPS) and telecom backup systems. The sodium battery’s capability for sustained high-power discharge and frequent cycling make it an ideal candidate to transform stationary battery applications from simple backup power to hybrid energy storage systems, allowing energy savings through off-peak grid recharging and renewable power integration.
