ENERGY-STORAGE SYSTEMS FOR AUTOMOBILE PROPULSION. VOLUME 1. OVERVIEW AND FINDINGS. FINAL REPORT

Presented here are results of a national multilaboratory study of energy-storage propulsion systems for automobiles. The findings of the five participating panels are given, including a technical and cost analysis for the energy-storage devices and resulting vehicles, as well as a discussion of national impact issues. The report is presented in four volumes: Volume 1 - Overview and Findings; Volume 2 - Energy Storage Devices; Volume 3 - Automotive Propulsion Systems; and Volume 4 - National Impact Issues. This volume contains information on electrochemical, mechanical, chemical, and thermal energy storage devices; the feasibility of developing each type of system for use in automobiles; the effects of such usage on vehicle design, safety, performance, cost, and marketability; and the impact on US petroleum consumption of the commercialization of vehicles with energy storage equipment.
