There is a lot of attention on the energy industries right now I reckon, and rightly so! We are trying to move the world into a more environmentally form of consumption and while our consumption is scary, at least we might be doing it in a more efficient way right? That's why electricity power storage is so important - we need to figure out a way to harness the renewable energy sources better!

@prabhakar_deosthali---excellent point about the importance of form factors in battery applications. It is a critical parameter and flexibility in battery shape is key.

Form factor also important
prabhakar_deosthali   12/16/2013 1:28:36 AM

Apart from using different material for the basic battery technologies to increase the W/KG and Wh/kg , it is also necessary to be able to design batteries in different shapes. The current box type batteries for large capacities and round shaped cells ( AA, AAA etc) for smaller capacities do not serve the form factor requirements of some of the new generation products.

Especially for EVs if the batteries can be packed in the vehicle body itself then there could be great saving in the dead wt of the vehicle.
