Pantera Energy congratulates Stanley Whittingham, John Goodenough and Akira Yoshino for winning the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for development of Lithium Ion Batteries. This long awaited Nobel prize is a testament to the importance of lithium ion batteries in advancement of human race. Pantera Energy thanks these remarkable individuals for their service to mankind. We also congratulate the Nobel Prize committee for this brilliant decision. We hope this recognition will motivate the younger generation to help solve the problems of the modern world.
Lithium ion batteries were developed to provide rechargeable, light-weight, energy dense and reliable energy storage. Since then, Li-ion batteries sparked a revolution across the globe by powering up the modern world. They have taken the world by storm and have transformed the way we live. Today, Lithium ion batteries are present everywhere, in mobile phones, laptops, smart gadgets, electronics, iPods, digital readers and electric vehicles.
In the first phase of their life, lithium ion batteries powered up a more connected, rechargeable and mobile world. And that is not all for these batteries. The utility and usability of renewable energy will enhance by use of Lithium ion batteries. Requisite stability to renewables is provided by Large utility scale Lithium ion battery units.
After being the enabling platform for digital revolution, Lithium Ion Batteries are continuing their journey to empower the next revolution. Renewables became a necessity due to rising global warming and environmental challenges. However, renewable sources (wind, sunlight, water) are usually not available on demand. Therefore, renewables were not suitable for stand-alone operation. This limitation of renewables gave rise to the importance of large scale storage systems. Here, Lithium ion batteries proved to be the winner once again with the development of large scale Lithium batteries.
Since the introduction of Tesla Powerwall, Solar PV solutions with Lithium ion batteries are popular across the globe. This enables households to eliminate their reliance on electric grids and fossil fuel based ‘dirty’ energy. Recently, after hurricanes in Florida and Puerto Rico, Solar PV with Lithium Ion combos proved an interesting new use case. After grid electricity was swept away due to hurricanes, households with Lithium ion batteries and solar PV installed managed to stay lit. This opened up the utility of these systems during natural calamities and wars.
