Lithium-ion is currently the most widely used battery technology. But if you follow the news surrounding battery breakthroughs, that is about to change.
Carbon membrane should help prevent dendrite forming in lithium-metal batteries. If that works, it brings the e-car closer to being able to drive 1,000 kilometers without recharging.
Chalmers University of Technology says it has developed a material that serves as a good battery and construction material at the same time for such things as electric cars or bicycles.
The spin off from TNO, LionVolt BV, has promised a 3D solid-state thin film battery that is lighter, safer and more efficient than current lithium batteries.
The Finnish energy group wants to create a recycling cluster for batteries used in electric cars in Harjavalta.
The Dutch company SALD expects to be able to provide batteries with an ultra-thin layer that makes batteries three times more powerful by 2022 or 2023 at the earliest.
German researchers have succeeded in gaining a more precise understanding of processes in solid-state batteries which have lithium as the negative terminal and copper sulfide as the positive terminal.
