But there are a few hurdles on the way which limit the commercialization of such a technology, as silicon shows a tendency to rapidly expand during charging and discharging which significantly affects their capacity over the long run. In short silicon, anodes cannot be used over an extended charge, discharge cycle due to efficiency loss. In order to tackle such a situation, scientist throughout the industry is finding ways to stabiles the silicon component, but the cost and the complexity is solving down the entire process.
Even though how quirky the experiments sound to be, it is surely showing positive results.
The researches for a battery is not limited to international markets, Indian Oil Corporation. Limited recently has announced that they have partnered with an Israel battery manufacturing firm to produce metal-air batteries that have the potential to be used in EV’s. The distinctive feature about the battery is that it is highly moldable for multipurpose usage, both for mobility and stationery needs. It needs to be seen that how these kinds of innovations would benefit the EV the market as a whole.
