Niobium materials technology - renewable energy sector

During the past several years, niobium (Nb) has made material science technological advancements for both ferrous and non-ferrous renewable energy applications. New product developments within the niobium non-ferrous alternative energy sector are in stage 1 of the product life cycle and in its infancy. Laboratory and prototype trials have revealed promising opportunities for both niobium and its oxides in emerging product applications for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), solar panels, smart windows and piezoelectricity.
