Graphene for Energy Sector
FROM REPLACING BATTERIES TO ELECTRIC CARS
Graphene applications for energy sector include flexible solar panels, more efficient batteries for electric vehicles, eco-friendly energy storage, among others. Energy sector is experiencing high growth thanks to advanced technologies such as electric vehicles, Internet of Things and robotics.
Graphene as an additive in batteries increases capacity and is more environmentally friendly as currently available batteries.
New electric vehicles need long-lasting batteries with short charging time. We can already see some applications on the market. As we will see more and more electric vehicles on the street, the implementation of graphene batteries will grow.
Scientists all around the world are working on applying graphene for solar panels to improve this green technology. Even wind turbines can leverage graphene as coating or composite to provide lighter, long-lasting turbines and cut maintanance costs.
