According to the World Economic Forum, clean energy technology has reached a turning point in maturity, where it is economically viable. Here you can read about some of the XOLTA technology that helps you get more out of your solar cell investment.
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology is the dominant energy storage medium for personal electronics, electric transport and energy storage.
Li-ion batteries outperform other rechargeable battery technologies in all aspects – from useable capacity and lifecycles to charging time, running costs and more. Lithium is the lightest of all metals with the greatest electrochemical potential. And it has the largest energy density per volume and weight.
Li-ion technology has a crucial part to play in the migration away from fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources in transport, industry and residential applications.
If you’re really into the details, check out the Battery University’s article “How Do Lithium Batteries Work?”
Li-ion batteries can only perform safely, at their highest capacity and with the longest life when they are monitored and controlled by a good battery management system.
And when managed well during charging and discharging, Li-ion offers far more benefits than other battery chemistries. More capacity, longer lifetime, faster charging, lower costs and better temperature tolerance.
XOLTA was forming part of one of the world’s first companies to specialize in battery management systems for lithium-ion batteries. That knowledge is the foundation of XOLTA batteries today. And it’s what enables us to help customers leverage energy so effectively.
Every XOLTA solar battery can include a sophisticated energy management system (EMS). This system of computer-aided tools “lives” in the cloud and is connected to each individual solar battery. Without it, your battery is just a battery.
An advanced battery optimization algorithm in the EMS monitors and controls the solar battery to ensure it performs optimally. In other words, it enables intelligent energy storage – which helps you get the most out of your solar cells.
