Battery electric vehicles are proposed as the answer to air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions, but are they really “zero emissions”, and will they deliver the range, durability and charging convenience that we need ?
The lecture will explain why batteries are the key to this, how they work, how they are made, their role in future transport, and the research being done to improve them.
