Battery power: five innovations for cleaner, greener electric vehicles

Excerpt from theguardian.com

While the journey to a low-carbon economy is well under way, the best route to get there remains up for debate. But, amid the slew of “pathways” and “roadmaps”, one broad consensus exists: “clean” technology will play a vital role.
