Minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO) by using lithium titanium oxide (LTO) batteries

Toshiba’s vision is to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by supporting the global trend of decarbonization via electrification. One key solution to do this is the Toshiba rechargeable lithium-ion battery SCiB with a lithium titanium oxide (LTO) anode. One of the six key advantages over conventional carbon-based batteries is the extreme cycle lifetime. Depending on the load profile, the lifetime of SCiB can be 15 times longer. This reduces waste caused by multiple battery replacements during the lifetime of the end product and minimizes the total cost of ownership (TCO), which is one of the key metrics for industrial heavy-duty applications.
