Sodium-ion energy storage batteries, electrochemical energy storage
Sodium-based energy storage systems are attracting tremendous attention along with the growing demand for electric vehicles and grid-scale energy storage. Sharing similar intercalation chemistry to their lithium counterpart, sodium-ion based systems show promising potential for large-scale application due to the benefit of the low cost and natural abundance of sodium sources. The high abundance of sodium and its low cost compared to lithium renewed the high interest on sodium ion batteries as cheaper solution for electrochemical energy storage. Indeed, sodium ion batteries have recently proposed as possible candidates for stationary and mobile energy storage devices. Here In this review, we briefly summarize the recent progress in the material design for sodium-ion batteries, including both inorganic and organic materials.
