As Gridweek takes place down in Washinton D.C., we take a look today at one of our favorite energy-related stories unfolding in the battery innovation arena.

As the world grows and develops, there are more and more cars on the road. The current state is most likely not sustainable and the system needs to be transformed. Many feel that the electrification of transportation could help move the world towards smarter and more efficient means of using energy.

In order to make purely electric vehicles a reality, however, batteries, including the amount of energy they are able to store per charge, need to be greatly improved. Current technology doesn’t allow a purely electric vehicle to go very far on one charge. Imagine a family sedan that could go hundreds of miles per charge. It would have a transforming effect on our energy and oil use, the auto industry and more.

Recently, researchers at IBM gathered some of the world’s leading experts in the field of electrical energy storage and advanced battery technologies in San Jose, California, to brainstorm on how to create next-generation rechargeable batteries capable of storing ten times more energy than today’s most powerful Lithium-ion batteries.

In this video, Daniel Sperling, author of Two Billon Cars, and IBM researchers talk about what the challenges are and the science and development needed to make it happen.

It is a good news for battery manufacturer or user.

so much as electric car was killed a few years back.

Type A flu virus is constantly changing and is generally responsible for the large flu epidemics. The influenza A2 virus (and other variants of influenza) is spread by people who are already infected. The most common flu hot spots are those surfaces that an infected person has touched and rooms where he has been recently, especially areas where he has been sneezing.-..;,

“Maybe with the advent of hybrid cars we’ll finally get the efficient multifuel turbines we were promised in the sixties to run the back up alternators.”
Yes, hybrid cars at the time were not the best solution

The upcoming hybrid cars promise to be even better than the ones that are already available. Hybrid cars are designed with the environment in mind, and the savvy car companies know that the highest prizes will go to those companies that can design an outstanding car that is easy on the consumer’s pocket as well as the world around us. Car manufacturers are investing untold amounts of money on the creation of new and upcoming hybrid cars. With the advent of the totally electric car still on the distant horizon, motor companies are currently competing to make sure their own hybrid cars produce the lowest amount of emissions possible.`-’^

When I read articles like this I get very excited. I care allot about the environment, but I also like my fast cars. This gives the best of both worlds! These new electric cars have lots of torque and are fun to drive. I have the same concept in my electric bike but on a smaller scale. I love riding through town and it has amazing acceleration. check out some of the YouTube videos on electric Bikes. Im looking forward to when i can afford my first fully electric car! You can shop for electric cars at http://dealershowcase.ca/car-dealers-lots-new-used-s534.php There are dealerships from across the country with electric vehicles for sale.

At present,lithium iron phosphate(Li-FePO4) and lithium polymer battery are widely used in electric vehicles, these kind of battery have more energy density than original SLA battery. I think it is good for our environment.

Battery life needs to be radically extended for a whole range of devices. For example, my mobile phone needs to be charged once per day, my laptop every couple of hours. Given the increasing reliance today on battery-powered devices, having longer-life, more efficient batteries would seem to be a way to somewhat reduce everyone’s daily power (from the main grid) needs.

Insufficient charge in electric car batteries is holding back the deployment of electric vehicles as viable replacements for petrol and diesel vehicles. A battery needs to be able to power a car for at least 250 miles (not 80-100 miles as is currently the case). And batteries need to be charged extremely quickly, taking about the same amount of time to recharge as it takes to fill a car at the pump.

Thanks for sharing but i think, A fracture is the (local) separation of an object or material into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress. The word fracture is often applied to bones of living creatures, or to crystals or crystalline materials, such as gemstones or metal. Sometimes, in crystalline materials, individual crystals fracture without the body actually separating into two or more pieces. Depending on the substance which is fractured, a fracture reduces strength (most substances) or inhibits transmission of light (optical crystals).

Lithium batteries are considered as life for the electric vehicles. Many automotive companies are reasearching on developing powerful lithium batteries which will help these vehicles in long run. I feel building and researching to develop powerful batteries will help these electric vehicles to survive.

Most EVs charge up at night when system wide demand for electricity is low. They tap existing generating capacity that is not fully used rather than increasing demand for new capacity.

Many automotive companies are planning to launch their hybrid electric vehicles. These vehicles will surely require powerful batteries so that they can run efficiently. I am sure that new innovative techniques will help to manufacture good and efficient batteries. Lets see which will be the futuristic new technique.

The answer is electric, the cars must be smaller, lighter, perhaps carbon-fiber bodied, and used for shorter ranges only, stepping up to Electric bullet trains for distance travel.

Depleted Uranium1 the X factor? Why not dig into this metal and it’s battery potential? Its a “Military” thing right now! Using existing sunshine in American deserts, and the wind on the plains, we have proven surveys indicating a surplus of cheap electricity is possible, and battery cars provide convenient, and much needed ballast for these intermittent power sources, making them almost as seamless as geo-thermal power. The whole scheme depends on better batteries, and life-style modifications for Americans, who are, sadly, running out of sources for cheap oil, at the same time having to share world oil supplies with an ever demanding and growing Asia – The answer is electric, the cars must be smaller, lighter, perhaps carbon-fiber bodied, and used for shorter ranges only, stepping up to Electric bullet trains for distance travel, and the shortage of oil and its greater expense will eliminate air travel altogether! The very fabric of America is changing! The days of the great hulking American laborer, traveling cross-country, in a V-8 Lincoln for a month’s vacation, pulling a boat and motor or travel trailer, are gone! The paradigm shift is taking it’s tole on the common folk, and more is to come, but given realistically sized and adequately powerful batteries we will survive this change, and in a cleaner environment, and with healthier lighter weight bodies on people as well as cars, trucks rail cars, and clearer better educated minds, not propagandized bu automotive advertisers wish lists, but filled with the practicalities and limitations of Science and Environment, a sustainable way of living at last!

If we bought rail cars for our electric commuter rail systems that would ferry your car, across town or across the country, you could ride and charge at the same time. Less batteries needed. And you could still only sit on your own seat. The biohazards of urban life are a much more grim reality with the latest swine flu virus epidemic. Modern DC powered light rail also involves a DC power transmission grid that can form the back bone of a system to utilize solar and various power sources without complicated synchronization equipment. Batteries located at the substations could be shunted in and out of the series and charged from lower voltage systems. Maybe with the advent of hybrid cars we’ll finally get the efficient multifuel turbines we were promised in the sixties to run the back up alternators.

@Bob

Electric cars normally have chargers on-board, so you can just plug into an outlet (normally a 220v 35A circuit) and charge up in your garage or at charging stations. Many electric cars also can take a charge at a lower voltage and amperage, so you have a wider range of charging options.
