Federal Government Aims to Develop a 500 Wh/kg Battery, 350 kW Charging System

New initiatives of the Obama Administration to advance electric vehicle adoption include the development of a battery pack with a specific energy of 500 watt-hours per kilogram and a 350 kilowatt DC fast charging system. If accomplished, the battery’s specific energy would be more than two-and-a half times the 170-200 watt-hours per kilogram in today’s typical EV battery. The initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is called Battery500, and it represents a consortium led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington and includes four other DOE national laboratories and five universities. The advisory board includes PNNL, Tesla Motors and IBM. During the five-year project the consortium hopes to reach the goal by focusing on lithium-metal batteries, which use lithium instead of graphite. SEE ALSO: How Long Will An Electric Car’s...
