Fraunhofer launches test centre for high-voltage batteries March 27, 2015Fraunhofer launches test centre for high-voltage batteries To foster electromobility, research institute Fraunhofer LBF (Darmstadt, Germany) has opened the centre for system reliability in electromobility, abbreviated ZSZ-e. The centre is dedicated to developing testing procedures and guidelines for high-voltage batteries. In addition, the researchers will perform multi-physical tests on batteries, modules and components. What’s more, the scientists introduced the prototype of an electric vehicle that follows a unique approach. Read more Are next generation EV batteries a step closer? January 13, 2015Are next generation EV batteries a step closer?

Chemistry Professor Linda Nazar and her research team at the Faculty of Science at the University of Waterloo claim to have discovered a material that maintains a rechargeable sulphur cathode which overcomes a hurdle to building a lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery.
