That will be key to meeting climate goals and unlocking the full potential of electric vehicles. So far the irreversible depletion of lithium ions in silicon anodes puts a major constraint on the development of next-generation lithium-ion batteries. For an […]

A study by a team from the Institute of Vehicle Concepts, German Aerospace Center (DLR) on the total cost of ownership (TCO) strongly suggests car manufacturers should develop a modular battery design for plug-in hybrid and extended range electric vehicles (PHEVs and EREVs). That simple change would allow consumers a choice of storage capacity to […]
