    Goodenough was one of the scientists invited to monitor a breakthrough at Ford: a sodium-sulfur car battery that inverted the lead-acid design. The molten sodium anode and molten sulfur cathode, coupled with a solid ceramic electrolyte, formed a battery that was both lighter than, and had 15 times the energy density of, a lead-acid battery. Maximize Battery Life with Long-Duration Energy Storage N GK INSULATORS, LTD. has introduced a Sodium Sulfur Battery System technology -- NAS ® battery -- that is currently the only commercially mature, large-scale energy storage technology that can be installed anywhere. NAS battery can be used for a variety of clients, including: ・Power plants.   At the same time that Ford of Europe was developing the Comuta, the Ford Scientific Research Laboratory in Dearborn, MI, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy, initiated development of the sodium-sulfur battery, a new type of electric storage cell, based on the sodium-sulfur (NaS) electrochemical couple. The sodium-sulfur battery is emerging as a prime high-temperature energy storage technology for space flight applications. Useable specific energy of two to three times that of Ni-H2 batteries is the key advantage of Na-S. This represents a significant launch cost savings, and increased payload mass capability.

In a room-temperature sodium–sulfur (RT Na–S) battery, the complicated reduction reaction of the sulfur cathode generally involves two main steps: (i) transformation of elemental sulfur into long-chain soluble sodium polysulfides (Na2Sn 4 ≤ n ≤ 8) and (ii) conversion of the long-chain sodium polysulfides into solid-state short-chain polysulfide Na2S2 or disulfide by: In addition, organic solvents at lower temperatures could potentially access a greater portion of the theoretical energy density of the Na 2 S since the high melting point of the polysulfides limits the stoichiometric window of sodium to sulfur to ∼ 48 This thinking led to the development of the IT NaS battery, firstly introduced from.

In Ford Motor Company invented the Sodium-Sulfur (NaS) liquid metal battery for electric vehicle application. The high power density and high energy capacity looked promising but the high operating temperature of °C caused Ford to drop research and development.

Ford developed the sodium-sulfur battery technology inbut had not developed it commercially. Development was later picked up in Europe. Development was later picked up in Europe. The Ecostar was introduced as a purely experimental effort, to help develop all aspects of electric vehicle design from engineering to supplier development to market cturer: Ford of Europe.

Sodium Sulfur batteries or NaS batteries were initially created by the Ford Motor Company in the s and later on sold to NGK, the Japanese Company. Work during the past year on the development of a sodium--sulfur battery system for bulk storage of energy is described. Two initial cell/module/system designs are discussed.

The cell in these preliminary designs consists of many individual beta-alumina tubes used as the separator between single sodium and sulfur : Fischer, W.

Sodium–sulfur battery explained. A sodium–sulfur battery is a type of molten-salt battery constructed from liquid sodium (Na) and sulfur (S). This type of battery has a high energy density, high efficiency of charge/discharge and long cycle life, and is fabricated from inexpensive operating temperatures of to °C and the highly corrosive nature of the sodium.

Sodium-sulfur battery. Sodium-sulfur battery cells (NaS batteries) are different because they typically have a cylindrical shape (Energy Storage Association, ). Hereby, the (liquid) sodium cathode is situated on the inside and the (liquid) of sulfur anode is on the outside/5(3).

Ecostars now being driven on U.S. highways are milestone vehicles in that they're the first to travel under power of advanced batteries. The 37 kWh, pound sodium-sulfur battery, built by ABB (Heidelberg, Germany) for Ford, allows the pound Ecostar to achieve a conservative Federal Urban Driving Schedule range of miles.
