The issues of creating batteries that allow for extremely rapid charging, delivering range at a similar rate as fossil fuel refuelling is at the centre of creating the EV revolution.
The standard battery chemistry won't deliver this. Which means new innovative chemistries must be developed that provide the capacity for the extreme-fast necessary to make the EV revolution a reality.
I'm joined by Doron Myersdorf, CEO & Co-Founder of StoreDot, a leader in EV battery innovation to explore exactly what how these developments are taking shape
