Energy storage developer BioSolar has begun a sponsored research agreement with North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University to boost its lithium-ion battery investigation.
The company aims to increase the capacity, extend cycle-life, and reduce the cost of its lithium-ion batteries by strengthening the engineering efforts of its battery technology research.
Yet another US developer claims a “breakthrough energy storage technology ! Biosolar announced that the company is developing a breakthrough technology to significantly increase the capacity, lower the cost and extend the life of lithium-ion batteries.
Based on the company's internal analysis, a super battery built using its technology can double the range of a Tesla automobile, costs 4 times less, has faster charging time, longer life and can potentially break the $100/kWh cost barrier needed for mass market adoption of energy storage.
