The storage of electrical energy has always posed a technological challenge. Even though there have been significant developments over the past decade, the challenge is still on, with the goalposts being moved continuously by the new needs emerging in various application sectors, such as the necessity for increasingly compact, lightweight batteries for electronic devices and for storing in limited spaces the large quantity of energy required by electric traction.

The most recent ideas have come, in fact, from the automobile sector and the research being carried on for the development of electric and hybrid cars, with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions. Among the various solutions identified, lithium batteries have proved to be the most suitable instrument for achieving this aim, even if further experimentation will be necessary to consolidate such a technology.
