GBatteries AI Technology Can Super Charge Batteries In 5 Minutes

One of the most challenging things about owning an electric vehicle (EV) is battery range, and just how long charging these batteries typically takes. A company based out of Ottawa, Canada, called GBatteries is trying to solve this charge time dilemma. GBatteries was started in 2014 to help accelerate the use of EVs by reducing…

Electric Vehicle Batteries Will ‘Dwarf’ The Grid’s Energy-Storage Needs

There will be more than enough batteries in electric vehicles by 2050 to support a grid that runs on solar and wind—if the two are connected by smart chargers, according to experts at the International Renewable Energy Agency. Electric vehicles are expected to carry 40 terawatt-hours of battery storage by that date, said Francisco Boshell,…

Researchers develop Li-S battery that could enable an EV to drive more than 1,000km on a single charge

Imagine having access to a battery, which has the potential to power your phone for five continuous days, or enable an electric vehicle to drive more than 1000km without needing to “refuel”. Monash University researchers are on the brink of commercialising the world’s most efficient lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery, which could outperform current market leaders by…

New aqueous lithium-ion battery improves safety without sacrificing performance

As the lithium-ion batteries that power most phones, laptops, and electric vehicles become increasingly fast-charging and high-performing, they also grow increasingly expensive and flammable. In research published recently in Energy Storage Materials, a team of engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrated how they could — by using aqueous electrolytes instead of the typical organic electrolytes…

Four New Energy Storage Technologies To Power The EV Revolution

Remember hows gasmobiles were a luxury item until the Ford Model T came along? No? Well anyways, electric vehicles are closing in on a similar tipping point. The sticking point is the cost of an EV battery, which remains stubbornly high compared to, say, the cost of a gas tank. That’s about to change, and…
