    • Expected to be the most attractive economical and sustainable alternatives to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs)
    • the abundant availability and reasonable cost of sodium
    • Sodium-ion batteries in general have lower energy densities than LIB
    • Sodium battery has wider temperature tolerance
    • Easier to store and safer to transport
    • Can be used for light electromobility and large-scale stationary applications
