Researchers have replaced the graphite used as the negative electrodes in today’s lithium-ion batteries with niobium-tungsten-oxide

By focusing on the way lithium moves between the two electrodes, scientists in the Netherlands have come up with a new battery design that promises much faster charging rates. The architecture incorporates specialized channel structures that enable a greater flow of lithium ions, which the team hopes can help improve the grid storage capability of renewable energy.
