We need Lithium-Ion Batteries to make renewable energy viable.
The transition from fossil fuels to renewables is a critical element in the fight against climate change, and the transition to a sustainable world.
With the rapidly increasing share of our electricity being produced by variable renewable sources, the need to install and maintain a new generation of equipment arises, which fundamentally differs from traditional synchronous generators. From photovoltaic panel inspections to measuring the efficiency of power conditioners, Hioki is at the forefront of developing test and measurement equipment uniquely suited for this task.
The integration of these new and diverse elements into the existing grid infrastructure presents the challenge of managing their inherent variability. The need for storing electrical power to balance supply and demand becomes more critical. As the technology for producing lithium-ion batteries advances rapidly, and prices continue to fall, we are seeing an increase in their grid scale deployments around the world. However, the rapid adoption of electric vehicles and the electrification of our transportation is facilitating a greater shift from fossil fuels towards renewable energy. This has become a reality only in recent years, with the rapid advances in Lithium-Ion battery technology.
Hioki manufactures advanced test and measurement equipment that is used in almost every stage of Lithium-Ion batteries manufacturing cycle.
From advanced methods of measuring sheet resistivity of the electrodes, verifying the integrity of tab welds with precise resistance measurements, identifying insulation problems, and measuring the internal impedance of the finished cell in addition to providing test solutions for the battery management system as well as packaged modules.
