Sodium ion battery is a promising electrochemical energy storage technology as an alternative to lithium ion batteries. The use of highly earth abundant element sodium, instead of precious lithium, potentially allows very low materials cost in battery manufacturing in the future, which is particularly important for large scale energy storage, such as stationary storage for electrical grids and high power tools.
