CURRENT INTERNATIONAL ACTION ON ADVANCED BATTERY SYSTEMS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The future economy demands the development of more efficient power sources for urban vehicles. These sources will be electro-chemical systems, i.e. batteries, or fuel cells, or battery-fuel cell hybrids. The purpose of this paper is to review the current world effort being directed towards developing advanced battery systems for electric vehicle power source applications. The relative merits of the various battery types under examination will be discussed in terms of their efficiency, performance, convenience and cost. These factors are important in deciding whether a particular system will be suitable for use in electric vehicles. /TRRL/
