The Development of Aluminum-Air Batteries for Electric Vehicles 891660

The aluminum-air battery has unique features that make it an attractive candidate as a power source in an electric vehicle. The energy and power densities of the battery can provide driving ranges comparable to those of the internal combustion engine. The battery is a multi-component system as will be described and any development program must focus upon the several challenges:
  1. (a)
    the need for high performance electrodes
  2. (b)
    a cell design that allows rapid replacement of the anode, and
  3. (c)
    separation of the solid product from the electrolyte.
