The challenges of transporting lithium-ion batteries

transport batteries lithium

Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionized our daily lives, powering a multitude of applications. Initially used for computers and everyday applications (tools, smartphones, etc.), they have gradually been developed to power 100% electric or hybrid vehicles (cars, buses, trucks and off highway vehicles).

The continuing growth in demand for lithium batteries means that they have to be supplied to vehicle integrators and manufacturers wherever they are located. Logistical flows of lithium batteries have increased, necessitating the introduction of standards and regulations aimed at managing their transport efficiently, particularly in terms of safety.

Hydrogen vehicles, a 100%-battery alternative for zero emission electromobility


Hydrogen vehicles are a promising option for the future, but their costs and carbon footprints are being debated.

Like retrofit, the hydrogen industry is emerging. Several countries are presenting ambitious plans to accelerate its development, praising the availability of the resource and its high energy density. For example, France and Portugal are dedicating 7 billion euros to the sector until 2030, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands 9 billion and Italy 10 billion.

Solid-state battery: the future of electromobility?


100% lithium or hydrogen battery electric solutions – including a lithium-ion battery – are the most mature and coveted alternatives for the energy transition of the transport sector.

Lithium batteries are being actively researched and improved: lighter, more compact, more capacitive, faster charging and more stable over time, solid-state cell manufacturers are announcing one after the other their incredible results and betting on this “technology of the future”. Over the past 10 years, interest in this technology has been revived with the use of new materials with high ionic conductivity.

The lithium batteries

According to Bloomberg NEF, two-thirds of the world’s passenger vehicle sales will be electric by 2040. And grid-scale systems the world over are growing rapidly thanks to advancing battery storage & transporting technology. This electrified future is much closer than you might think.

Electric retrofit accelerates decarbonisation of transport

Faced with the strengthening of mobility policies imposed by cities and governments to meet the objective of carbon neutrality by 2050, vehicle fleets are being electrified en masse.

Like private individuals, fleets are being equipped: light vehicles, commercial vehicles, trucks, industrial vehicles, buses. If the purchase of a completely new solution is a widely favoured option until now, why not consider retrofitting as an alternative to ensure the energy transition of a fleet?
