$1.6M UK project for next generation of #Li-S batteries for marine autonomous systems

$1.6M UK project for next generation of Li-S batteries for marine autonomous systems 24 March 2015 Innovate UK will award £1.1 million (US$1.6 million) to a consortium of UK companies and academic partners led by Steatite for the research and development of the next generation of Lithium batteries for marine autonomous systems. In addition to Steatite, whose speciality is the design and manufacture of lithium battery pack solutions, collaborators include Li-sulfur battery company OXIS Energy, underwater vehicle designers and manufacturers MSubs Ltd, and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC). OXIS says that its Li-S cells are suited for use in subsea applications due to their increased specific energy, their mass density and high safety. Li-S cells have five times the theoretical maximum specific energy of Lithium-ion cells. The mass density of Lithium Sulfur cells is very...
