A number of advanced battery solutions are currently making their way from the lab to the consumer. With energy densities greatly exceeding that of traditional lithium ion batteries, these chemistries promise to dramatically expand the use and applicability of energy storage. In one important example, lithium air chemistries have a theoretical energy density equivalent to gasoline, making fully electrified transportation a reality.
Like lithium batteries in the 1980’s, these technologies hold great promise once technical and cost challenges are overcome. In these chemistries, EnerG2’s advanced engineered carbon materials will help to solve a number of the key technical challenges required to commercialize the technologies.
