The race is on to get solid-state batteries.
Solid State Battery
The Fisker EMotion combines style, range, a luxurious interior and an advanced suite of lidar sensors for autonomous driving.
It's researching the technology but denies it's developing them with Nissan.
The technology will be on display at CES 2018.
This could revolutionize transportation. Take it from John Goodenough.
Solid state batteries are safer than lithium-ion and can be charged in minutes.
Dyson invests $15 million in battery-making startup Sakti3 for cordless vacuum cleaners.
The Holy Grail of electric vehicle technology is coming soon, according to Japanese news outlet Nikkei.
Back in 1925, long before the X-Prize foundation even existed, an inventor by the name of Sakichi Toyoda reportedly offered a prize of 1 million yen for the invention of a battery that would produce more energy than gasoline. As you can probably guess, no one has claimed that prize yet. However, Toyota thinks this target may be possible in the future and thus created, in 2008, a research division to work on "revolutionary batteries." Three years later, this division has been giving technical pre
Matthew Dakotah over at the Huffington Post has been writing a special "Women in Power" series that profiles leaders in energy and environmental innovation. His latest article on Ann Marie Sastry piqued our interest since she happens to be President and CEO of Sakti3. If you recall, Sakti3 is a promising next-generation lithium-ion battery developer that General Motors and Itochu invested $4.2 million in late last year.
Solid-state batteries have the potential to offer more power output and higher energy storage density than a typical lithium-ion battery. In addition, the reactive liquid electrolyte found in conventional li-ion batteries is thought to lead to cell instability and effect the life span of the battery. Solid-state technology could provide automakers with a battery that not only packs significantly more punch, but also has longevity unmatched by today's liquid electrolyte-based li-ion batteries. Un
