New Nickel-Lithium Battery Has Ultra-High Energy Density

All Cars Electric

Researchers at Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have succeeded in making the world's first Ni-Li battery, a formulation that holds more than 3.5 times the energy of Li-ion batteries and doesn't run the risk of catching fire. By including a membrane made of the recently developed glass-ceramic

DOE to award almost $20M to new research and development projects for advanced vehicle technologies

Green Car Congress

This topic seeks proof-of-concept, or seedling projects that complement the VTO Battery500 Consortium’s research to more than double the specific energy (to 500 watt-hours per kilogram) of lithium battery technologies which will result in smaller, lighter weight, less expensive battery packs, and more affordable electric vehicles.

DOE to issue $47M FY17 Vehicle Technologies program-wide funding opportunity

Green Car Congress

The objective of the VTO Battery500 Program is to research, develop, and demonstrate lithium battery technologies capable of achieving a cell specific energy of ≥500 Wh/kg while achieving 1,000 cycles. The FOA will have estimated funding of $47,150,000; DOE expects to post the full announcement (DE-FOA-0001629) in December. Earlier post.)
