SOLSTICE partners at HZDR

Following the International Sodium Battery Symposium (SBS-4), SOLSTICE partners from Empa, HZDR, Politecnico di Torino, and SINTEF took the opportunity to meet at HZDR to discuss current findings and next steps.

All-Liquid Battery internship at SINTEF

MSc student Sophie Tønneberg has this summer been working with the All-Liquid Battery technology in the SOLSTICE project. During her eight-week-long internship at SINTEF, Sophie has focused on different Na electrode designs, and how they perform when cycling the battery cell. Photo: SINTEF / C. Sommerseth
