Batteries and Energy Storage

Improving the batteries for electric drive vehicles, including hybrid electric (HEV) and plug-in electric (PEV) vehicles, is key to improving vehicles’ economic, social, and environmental sustainability.  The DOE Vehicle Technologies Office focuses on reducing the cost, volume, and weight of batteries, while simultaneously improving the vehicle batteries’ performance (power, energy, and durability) and ability to tolerate abuse conditions.
