Alinta Energy launched Western Australia’s largest lithium ion battery at its Newman Power Station in the Pilbara region. The 30 MW (11.4 MWh) battery is among the world’s largest and is the largest Australian battery to be developed for an industrial application. The Alinta Energy Newman Battery Storage Project is designed to improve the performance of the islanded high voltage network in the region, supplying power to major iron ore producers.

The project raises new hopes to accelerate the advance of electromobility: lithium-based solid state batteries from sol-gel materials are considered a future-proof solution on the path towards safe, low-cost but high-performance batteries able to combine high charging speed with long cycle life. It is mostly conventional lithium-ion batteries that are used in electric vehicles or bicycles. This type of battery enables comparatively high energy and power densities but there is a limit to further voltage increase which puts a stop to ever rising performance levels. Also, the charging speed needs to be controlled to avoid overheating.

Volvo Trucks now introduces its first all-electric truck for commercial use – the Volvo FL Electric for urban distribution and refuse operations, among other applications. Sales and series production of the new model will start in Europe next year. With this introduction Volvo Trucks takes the lead in solutions for electrified goods transport in cities. With better air quality and less noise in the city, it is possible to plan for housing and infrastructure more freely than at present.

The production version of the Audi e-tron prototype heralds the dawn of a new era for the brand with the four rings: Audi is transforming from a classic carmaker to a systems supplier for mobility offering its customers tailored solutions for charging, whether at home or on the move. The production version of the Audi e-tron prototype is the first car on the market that can charge at charging stations with up to 150 kW. In barely 30 minutes, the electric SUV is then ready to set off on the next long stage of its journey. Its large lithium-ion battery provides for a range of more than 400 kilometers (248.5 mi) in the WLTP driving cycle.
