$50m for US electric vehicle development projects

The U.S. Department of Energy is funding research into battery development and more efficient convertors and capacitors for use in advanced electric vehicles.

The department is making available more than US$50 million across five R&D areas connected to the development of electric vehicles with the U.S. Army contributing $3.5 million for any crossover projects through the Advanced Vehicle Power Technology Alliance between the organizations.

Battery development projects are expected to include improvements in cell chemistry, composition and processing, and advanced electrolytes for next-generation lithium ion cells. Meanwhile, power systems projects could include the development of cheaper inverters and capacitors able to withstand higher temperatures.
