New Research on #Battery Could Triple Range of #ElectricVehicles

Research into a battery with innovative lithium metal negative electrodes is being touted as having potential to triple the energy density of electric cars in coming years. This could mean three-times the EV range from a battery of the same size as one today, according to work done at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and led by Quanquan Pang, now a post-doctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “This will mean cheap, safe, long-lasting batteries that give people much more range in their electric vehicles,” said Pang, who led the research while he was a PhD candidate at Waterloo. To develop the technology, researchers and Pang along with supervisor Linda Nazar, a professor of chemistry and chemical engineering at Waterloo, had two challenges to overcome. “The first challenge involved a risk of fires and explosions caused by micros...
