A123 @ the Whiteboard: Plotting Power vs. Energy on Ragone Curve

In this edition of A123 @ the Whiteboard, we focus on the high power capabilities of A123’s proprietary Nanophosphate® lithium ion battery technology. Because of the small particle size of Nanophosphate, the chemistry is able to deliver this high power while also retaining high energy, which gives A123’s batteries an advantage over competing lithium ion. To illustrate, we use a Ragone curve to plot the relationship between power and energy for A123’s batteries as compared with competing technologies.
