Batteries for Gasoline Equivalent EVs

Back to Transportation

As the power sector continues to move away from carbon-emitting technologies, one of the most promising opportunities to reduce emissions in transportation lies in electrifying cars and trucks. However, in order to make plug-in vehicles ubiquitous, they will need to approach the performance, cost, range, and fueling time of today’s gasoline and diesel powered vehicles—which will in turn require continued dramatic improvements in battery and battery-charging technologies. The development of a new generation of extremely inexpensive, energy-dense, quick-charging batteries would allow electric cars and trucks to replace traditional vehicles much more rapidly.
