Been around for 9 years working on SSBs and are nowhere near one. If you look upthread there is a video mythbusting SSBs and I also quoted a post saying that it's one of those it might happen tomorrow or never techs. And BTW the article you posted is from nearly a year ago and a quick Google search doesn't turn up anything significantly more recent, wonder why...where the hell do you live?
there is LOADS new battery tech comming
Silicon anodes aren't new on any level and come with their own issues.
Sulfur isn't new either and while it allows for a larger capacity batter it reduces useful lifespan.
See above about SSB.
Battery is nothing but an energy storage mechanism, it is always going to be limited by:
a) The amount of electrical energy available for charging
b) Chemical properties of the materials
We know what B is and what the limits there are, and no amount of research is going to surpass that.
Yet again battery tech improvements are largely irrelevant for ICE replacement, the issue is power generation. Fossil fuels are basically "free" energy in that we get a lot more out of it than we put in since geology, biology and the Sun have taken care of all of that long ago. Batteries will give us back significantly less than we put in and that requires a massive overproduction of energy.
