Tydrolyte introducing new electrolyte solution for lead-acid batteries

Tydrolyte LLC is introducing a patent-pending electrolyte solution for automotive, motive, and stationary storage lead-acid battery manufacturers. Tydrolyte is a less toxic drop-in replacement for sulfuric acid in lead batteries. The global lead battery market is expected to reach $84.46 billion by 2025 according market research firm Grand View Research. The Tydrolyte electrolyte offers three main benefits, according to the company. Lower charge resistance, higher charge acceptance, and improved round trip efficiency. A stop/start battery may need to start the car engine more than one hundred times more often during its lifetime than a traditional battery. It is also required to support new

China added as much battery-storage capacity in 2018 as all previous years combined

“China isn’t building gigafactories,” says Patrick Hurley, chief technology officer of A123, a lithium-ion battery company. “It is building gigacities.” Gigafactories are named for their capacity to build batteries in tens of gigawatt-hours (GWh) every year, which is about a million times the amount of energy consumed by a typical US household in a day. What Hurley meant by gigacities are complexes that include not just the gigafactory but everything else needed to support it: housing, infrastructure, research and development centers, and universities to train staff. China’s battery ambition can be seen in the speed at which the country is adding battery-storage capacity. At the start of 201

The Future of Power Delivery

One word sums up all discussion of what the future grid will be — flexible. There is a great deal of speculation about what the electric power grid will look like in the next 10 to 20 years. Hardly a week goes by without an announcement of a seminar, technical conference or webinar focused on visions of the future grid. This is good because the industry has already entered the transition. Now continuing the transition from today’s grid to the next generation is not going to be simple, as there are many issues that need to be dealt with, but the industry knows the future grid will be smart, dynamic, adaptive and driven by digital technologies. In addition, the industry will have to address ke
