There’s a lot of talk in the industry that solid state batteries are the future for EVs. But there’s still confusion around what makes solid state batteries so unique and when they’re actually going be hitting the market. That’s why we brought in Doug Campbell, CEO of Solid Power, a solid state battery company that has major backers like Ford and Volkswagen, to help clear things up.

    Changes are coming in the world of personal transportation, of that there is no doubt.

    Now, the only real question is, how fast the ICE focussed business model will collapse, and also whether governments will work for consumer based solutions to the necessary greening of the electrical grid.

    I find this interview very interesting as a auto comsumer. The thing that is holding me back from buying a full etectric vehicle is battery charge time if they can lower charge time range becomes a moot point. As a home owner with 220V available. the only time charge time becomes a issue is on a trip.

    Australia has a standard power supply to homes of 240 volts 50 HZ so recharging time is less of an issue than in USA and 415 volts 3 phase power is readily available. Distance is the big killer for EVs however. With only 26 million people living on a continent just slightly smaller than the continental 48 states travel to another city immediately introduces range anxiety.
