New high energy density battery technology announced

New high energy density battery technology announced
Katherine Rock

In February 2017, a team of University of Texas engineers announced the development of the first all-solid-state battery cells – the team including Dr John Goodenough, co-inventor of the lithium ion battery.  The engineers have shown that the energy density of the new battery cell is at least three times that of today’s lithium ion cells, and exhibits faster rates of charge and discharge – meaning the breakthrough could hold the key to ensuring reliability of supply for renewable energy and greater electric car range, among many other applications.

The invention is described in the Energy & Environmental Science, and if you are interested US granted patents and patent applications invented (or co-invented) by John Goodenough, click here.
