Introduction to Magnesium batteries & the E-Magic initiative

ACI’s European Electric Vehicle Batteries Summit

(18th & 19th June 2019, Berlin, Germany)

Oscar Miguel Crespo (Director. CIDETEC Energy Storage)

Introduction to Magnesium batteries & the E-Magic initiative

  • Presenting magnesium as an abundant and sustainable anode material for energy storage in electromobility, with greater volumetric energy density than lithium-ion.
  • Overcoming challenges such as an electrolyte that allows suitable cyclability, identifying the ideal cathodic materials and using Mg alloys with other metals in the anode
  • How the eMAGIC consortium brings together the leading international pioneers in Mg battery research to establish the industrial viability of magnesium battery technology in Europe.
