Asian inventions dominate energy storage systems
Munich, Germany (SPX) Aug 21, 2014
In recent years, the number of patent applications for electrochemical energy storage technologies has soared. According to a study by the Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM), the largest volume of applications by far is submitted by developers of lithium batteries. The study offers a first differentiated analysis of which energy storage technologies will be viable in the exit from fossil-fuel energy. In this area, European and US companies are falling behind economically, as Asian companies appl ... read more
