Volkswagen looking to develop hybrid batteries

Volkswagen AG is establishing a special, donated, Chair for Applied Material Sciences for Energy Storage and Energy Conversion at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. Research is to be focused in on lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries have added power and longer life compared to the nickel-metal hydride batteries used in most hybrid cars today.

‘For Volkswagen AG, advances in the area of energy storage are one of the keys to further advancing drive technology. The deal sealed today lays the foundation stone for a very promising collaboration between industry and university-based research,’ said Prof Jürgen Leohold, head of Volkswagen Group Research.
