2D materials may enable EVs to get 500 miles on a single charge

2D materials may enable EVs to get 500 miles on a single charge

Lithium-air batteries, which currently are still in the experimental stages of development, can store 10 times more energy than lithium-ion batteries, and they are much lighter. That said, lithium-air batteries could be even more efficient and provide more charge with the incorporation of advanced catalysts made from two-dimensional materials.

E.ON makes a strategic investment in Virta

E.ON makes a strategic investment in Virta

Earlier this year Virta and E.ON signed a global operational agreement to make thousands of intelligent E.ON charging stations available to electric vehicle users across Europe in ten countries. The cooperation creates one of the largest and densest charging networks in Europe, where the E.ON electric vehicle charging infrastructure is powered by the Virta platform.

Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Better batteries for a greater range of electric vehicles - this is the goal of the "EMBATT-goes-FAB" project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For that reason, the four project partners thyssenkrupp System Engineering GmbH, IAV GmbH, Daimler AG and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS are developing bipolar batteries and processes for their fabrication.
