Researchers at UC San Diego may have found a solution that enables lithium-ion batteries to be safely recharged within minutes for thousands of cycles.
Current lithium-ion battery designs pose well-documented limitations and challenges so researchers are looking for ways to improve these energy-storage devices.
Scientists have created electrolytes that can suppress growth in lithium-metal batteries, which require less recharging and can store more energy.
Bentley Motors' OCTOPUS project is targeting the development of electric motors for future EVs like the EXP 100 GT that won't need copper or rare earth metals.
Focus on charging plugs, charging stations, wall boxes, and inductive charging systems, with transfer of know-how from E&E and automotive applications.
