Carbon Fiber Battery to Reduce Electric Car Weight

Eric Jacques, a researcher in vehicle and aerospace engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), says carbon fiber can fill two functions in an electric car: as a lightweight composite reinforcement material for the car’s body, and as an active electrode in lithium ion batteries.

“The objective of our research was to develop a structural battery consisting of multifunctional lightweight materials that simultaneously manage mechanical loads, and store electrical energy,” says Eric Jacques, a researcher in Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering at KTH.
