Princeton U. to Receive Nearly $1 Million to Develop Better Batteries for Electric Car

If research is successful, the project could result in low-cost electric vehicle batteries.

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today applauded a U.S. Department of Energy Grant of $963,389 to Princeton University for the development of longer-lasting rechargeable alkaline batteries to be used in electric vehicles.

“This is very exciting news, and I heartily congratulate Princeton University for keeping New Jersey’s in what we perhaps are most admired for by the rest of the country: the development of breakthroughs that make people’s lives better and the world a better place,” Menendez said.. “There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for electric vehicles being brought to market, and for many the environment and economic advantages of their use are self-evident. I eagerly Princeton University’s research unlocking the chemical secrets that will help make electric vehicles ready for daily for daily commutes, weekend errands and road trips around this great, innovating nation of ours. ”
