Big Advancements in Electric Vehicle Batteries

A reader asks my opinion of Envia Systems‘ lithium-ion battery. I reply:

If these claims are true, it’s a really important breakthrough — potentially even more significant than that of my friends at Eos Energy Storage.

The number one issue that electric vehicle nay-sayers throw in the face of us advocates is resistance of battery technology to rapid change: both in terms of cost and energy density. In particular, they say that where Moore’s Law (the idea that the functionality of technology increases exponentially over time) applies to things like integrated circuits, it absolutely does not apply to power systems like motors and batteries. I believe the truth is probably somewhere in the middle, and perhaps this is evidence of that. We’ll see.
