NREL scientists discover new approach for magnesium-metal batteries

By Charles Morris Scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have pioneered a method that enables reversible chemistry of magnesium metal in noncorrosive carbonate-based electrolytes. The technology has several potential advantages over lithium-ion batteries, including higher energy density, improved stability and lower cost.
Magnesium batteries can theoretically store almost twice as much energy …read more
