Can’t beat the heat!
The quest to build better electric vehicles is basically about better battery engineering. While there are a number of promising chemistries being worked on in the lab, improvements are still being made to existing chemistries. Take this work on NMC (nickel manganese cobalt) cells, for instance. The University of California San Diego has just published in Nature Energy detailing how they pinpointed the cause of voltage fade in the cells and how they seem to have fixed it.
