Graphene batteries & supercapacitors could give #EV sales a boost | Electric Vehicle News

Graphene – the world’s thinnest material – could make batteries light, durable and suitable for high capacity energy storage for electric vehicles. Graphene promises a revolution in electrical and chemical engineering. It is a potent conductor, extremely lightweight, chemically inert and flexible with a large surface area. It could be the perfect candidate for high capacity energy storage. Soon after graphene’s isolation, early research already showed that lithium batteries with graphene in their electrodes had a greater capacity and lifespan than standard designs. A new project ‘Electrochemical Energy Storage with Graphene-Enabled Materials’ is exploring different ways to reduce the size and weight of batteries and extend their lifespan by adding graphene as a component material. “But before we build the batteries we need to know how graphene will interact with the chemic...
