FY 2011 Annual Progress Report for Energy Storage R&D

FY 2011 annual report of the energy storage research and development effort within the VT Program. The object of this effort is to advance the development of batteries to enable a large market penetration of hybrid and electric vehicles. Program targets focus on overcoming technical barriers to enable market success including: (1) significantly reducing battery cost, (2) increasing battery performance (power, energy, durability), (3) reducing battery weight & volume, and (4) increasing battery tolerance to abusive conditions such as short circuit, overcharge, and crush.
