Scientists Find the Potential Key to Longer-Lasting Sodium Batteries for Electric Vehicles

The Science Lithium-ion batteries are the standard for electric vehicles, but their raw materials are costly and can have unreliable supply chains. Sodium-ion batteries are an alternative that could alleviate some of these challenges. However, the performance of these batteries declines rapidly with repeated charges and discharges. This is a major barrier … [continued]
