Results of cutting-edge battery research projects conducted by NREL's Energy Storage Team were presented at the first-of-its-kind Advanced Automotive Battery & EC Capacitor Conference held in June in Long Beach, California. The conference highlighted some of the latest advances in vehicle battery and ultracapacitor R&D and indicated where the technology is heading. NREL's research, sponsored by DOE and industry, looks at the critical issues surrounding the development of batteries for the hybrid electric and all-electric vehicles of the future, including battery lifetime, performance, safety, and cost, and explores ways to develop the safest, most efficient and most reliable batteries possible.
