BATTERY MATERIALS CONF: EVs will progress to solid-state batteries in 10-15 years, pending manufacturing developments
Published: Thursday, 11 April 2019
High prices and volatility have increased the appeal of lower-cobalt battery chemistries or cobalt-free battery technology, such as solid-state batteries in electric vehicles.
Electric vehicles will shift to using solid-state batteries
using lithium metal in the long term, but requisite
developments in the manufacturing process mean batteries with
liquid electrodes will remain in use until at least the late
2020s, according to Emily Hersch, managing partner of DCDB
"The practical reality...
