Carbon fibres could store energy in vehicle body


Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have demonstrated that carbon fibres can be used as battery electrodes, enabling them to store energy directly.

This could open up new opportunities for structural batteries, where energy storage is integrated into the body of a vehicle, allowing for significant weight reductions in electric cars or aircraft.
