Flexibility of use
The capacity and charge/discharge time of the accumulator can be adjusted by choosing a particular electrode thickness. This allows for tailor-made solutions and a number of applications of HE3DA accumulators and represents a huge potential for development.
Ability to construct large cells
The HE3DA technology enables construction of cells an order of magnitudes larger than are currently produced by conventional technologies. This is allowed by low production of heat and the ability to cool the cells efficiently by internal cooling of the electrolyte
HE3DA technology is inherently safe. Due to lower internal resistance, robust separators and the absence of any organic materials (except for the electrolyte), the HE3DA accumulator cannot burn or explode due to a short circuit. The battery can operate in a potentiostatic regime, which serves as a protection against overcharging.
HE3DA technology offers top-class technical parameters:
Battery system capacity up to 500 Wh/liter
Kilowatt hour module offers fifteen times higher peak power than currently used technologies.
Efficiency above 95%
Lifespan 5000 cycles
HE3DA technology achieves top-class economic parameters:
Low cell production costs:
Simplicity of production yields low capital expenditure and production costs.
Use of standard production materials and the absence of ballast result in low material costs.
Low cost of installation into large capacity storage systems:
Low cooling requirements and internal electrolyte cooling.
Ability to use a new, simple battery management system.
Low operational costs allowed by high efficiency and low O&M requirements.
= Low overall electricity storage costs
= Mass utilization of batteries in energy sector and other industries.
Future development potential
Currently used 2D lithium accumulators have reached their technical limits. Many issues still remain, particularly safety. Producers are now focusing mainly on lowering prices, seeking economies of scale by constructing huge production facilities.
HE3DA technology is still in an early stage of development. Future development potential is thus one of the greatest assets of HE3DA.
Today the recycling cost of a battery is approx. 5% of the battery’s value, reflecting the cost of ecological disposal.
An HE3DA accumulator is 100% recyclable.
