Advanced batteries for long-range electric cars

Advanced batteries for long-range electric cars
Limitation in energy density of batteries means in practice reduced driving range for electric cars, which is the largest obstacle to these vehicles entering the market. But, new technology using the reaction of metal and air could have a major impact on battery life. The EU-funded project NECOBAUT (New concept of metal-air battery for automotive application based on advanced nanomaterials) was launched with the aim to incorporate nanomaterials into batteries.
