However, as the carbon intensity of the EU energy mix is projected to decrease, the life-cycle emissions of a typical electric vehicle could be cut by at least 73 % by 2050.
Fast charging is very important for electric vehicles. We’d like to be able to charge an electric vehicle battery in under 15 minutes, and even faster if possible
The aim of the Faraday Institution’s battery modelling system project is to advance current computer models and develop design tools that can accurately predict the performance and lifetime of existing and future batteries.
This breakthrough significantly advances the technology needed to encourage greater adoption of electric vehicles by increasing their range and the ease of recharging, and in turn supports an energy-efficient mobility system for the nation’s economic success
Energy is our most important challenge in the future. It is important to build a device that stores energy, has high power and energy density, but at a low cost. This is what inspired our research into paper supercapacitors.
The grant also calls for incorporating these safety measures into the up-and-coming lithium-sulfur technology that could be the next generation of batteries due to their higher energy density than lithium-ion ones.
