”30 to 40% more energy in Tesla’s lithium-ion batteries”
In today’s Financial Post’s the article Tesla Motors Inc turns to Dalhousie University professor for help with battery technology, we can read that it might be possible to obtain 30 to 40% more energy in lithium-ion batteries.
Halifax’s Dalhousie University will get to play a role in Elon Musk’s quest to change the world as the result of a somewhat audacious request by a senior researcher studying lithium-ion batteries.
The goal of the Tesla-Dalhousie partnership is to create lithium-ion batteries that have longer lifespans and store more energy than existing technology.
Chemistry professor Jeff Dahn said he believes it’s possible to store 30 to 40 per cent more energy in lithium-ion batteries without compromising their lifespans, but it won’t be easy.
