Increasing battery storage and safety

The automotive industry seeks increasing performance (strength, electrical and thermal) at lighter weight. Driven by high and rising fuel prices, automakers are deploying higher capacity advanced batteries to support hybrid and electric vehicles. Nanocomp's sheet materials could replace heavier and problematic metal battery elements, providing multi-fold increases in energy capacity at reduced weight and enabling safer batteries. Implementing Nanocomp's material into lightweight composite structures, wiring, heating systems and EMI shielding elements further reduces auto weight while increasing thermal and electrical performance.
