Graphene Super Battery -Future Of Electric Vehicle

<p style="text-align: justify;">Electric vehicles are emerging as a cleaner alternative to conventional vehicles powered by fossil fuels, but issues like longer Battery charging time have hampered the widespread adoption of these new alternatives.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Over the course of decades, battery makers came to embrace lithium over silicon because it has a high electrical capacity. But lithium has two key problems- Poor Electrical Conductivity and gets physically deformed during discharges. Coating the Lithium Silicon Anode with nanomaterial like graphene solves both these issues. Graphene is highly conductive, allowing electricity to flow, and is rigid as well. So, it helps the lithium keep its shape, prevent dendritic creep, allowing the battery to last longer and have longer lifecycle.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Graphene has Very High Electrical Conductivity, so when you put it in silicon anode, the conductivity really goes up. And graphene has really good mechanical properties, so it doesn&rsquo;t allow the silicon anode to expand thatmuch so it will not break.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The last 15 to 20 years, basically the whole energy storage community has been doing a lot of work on how to make a good nanocomposite material, how to make this silicon graphene anode have the desired properties Graphene battery Technology are attracting interest beyond the start-up community, also from big players like Tesla.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Bigger challenge in adopting this technology would be building powerful enough chargers than making graphene batteries themselves.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">In a nutshell, if we need to clean up our environmental act somehow, and if we want to stave off the most devastating impacts of climate change then Nanomaterial based Graphene coated Silicon Anode hold lot of promise. If even a fraction of what utility for Graphene advocates say is possible ends up happening, it&rsquo;ll indeed be a valuable weapon in the fight against fossil fuels.</p>
