          £12m funding for battery research

          A University of 圣安德鲁斯-led project to create a safe, cheap, long-lasting battery which could revolutionise electric travel and renewable energy storage has been given £12m from a major funding body.

          The Faraday Institution announced the funding today (Wednesday 4 September) as part of a £55m funding round for research into energy storage.

          The £12m project, nexgenna, to be led by the University of 圣安德鲁斯, will work on creating a safe sodium ion battery with high performance, low cost and a long cycle life which could eventually be commercialised.


          Such batteries could allow electric trains to run on non-electrified lines making currently non-economical routes, for example rural routes in the Scottish Highlands, commercially viable.

          The technology could also allow effective storage of intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and allow electric cars to travel further before needing to be recharged.

            Surely the best bets for research are:

            A. Developing a cheaper Lithium extraction process
            B. 研究ing how to make Beryllium or Boron ion batteries both of which have many more ions for little more weight
