CENS helps solve the three key challenges that are crucial to wide adoption of electric vehicles (EV) – enabling longer driving range, shorter charging time, and lower battery cost.
By increasing battery capacity at all C-rates, CENS Nanotechnology substantially increases the driving distance between charges and reduces charging time. The substantial increase in battery capacity involves low CAPEX and OPEX, enabling an approximately 30% reduction in EV battery cost. With CENS Nanotechnology, EV battery producers can finally deliver the EV industry target of $100/KWh.
With each new generation of smartphones, tablets and laptops, consumers expect to be able to go longer between charging sessions. But in-demand new features such as enhanced multimedia capability, gaming, and high-resolution color graphics require more power, so users find themselves needing to charge their devices more frequently.
By substantially increasing battery capacity, CENS Nanotechnology stretches the time between charging by about 40% while also extending battery life cycle by more than 30%.
UAVs (or drones) are already used for military missions as well as varied industrial applications, such as crop scouting, geographical surveying and oil & gas infrastructure monitoring. Going forward, they are expected to play important roles in the next generation of many major industries. As these devices are expected to operate autonomously, they rely on an internal battery for their power, which in turn limits the amount of time and distance they can fly.
With CENS Nanotechnology’s unique ability to increase battery capacity, UAVs can operate for longer times and fly longer distances. Additionally, by reducing battery charging time, CENS enables higher utilization of the UAVs, increasing their overall cost-effectiveness.
Today’s solar farms and wind turbines are built to last for many decades, but the energy storage aspect has not kept up. Batteries in energy storage projects have lifespans of 10 to 15 years, while solar and wind energy assets may last twice as long.
CENS Nanotechnology can extend the lifecycle of energy storage batteries by more than 30% – enough to fundamentally change the ROI calculation for solar and wind energy generation.
