Sodium-ion batteries can be applied in the following areas:

  1. Energy Storage Systems: They are suitable for grid energy storage and renewable energy storage, such as for wind and solar power, due to their high cost-efficiency and long life span.
  2. Electric Transportation: While sodium-ion batteries generally have lower energy densities compared to lithium-ion batteries, they have potential in electric bicycles, electric motorcycles, and short-range electric vehicles, particularly in cost-sensitive markets.
  3. Portable Electronic Devices: Sodium-ion batteries can be used in devices such as flashlights, portable power banks, and low-power consumer electronics, where the cost and environmental impact are more critical than energy density.
  4. Emergency Power and Backup Systems: The stability and longevity of sodium-ion batteries make them a good choice for emergency power supply and backup systems like those in hospitals, data centers, and communications stations.
  5. Military and Aerospace Applications: Their high safety profile makes sodium-ion batteries suitable for some military and aerospace applications, including energy storage in submarines, drones, and satellites.

As sodium-ion battery technology advances and becomes more cost-effective, their use is expected to expand into even more areas, especially those seeking economic and environmentally sustainable options.
