Abstract [en]

My project revolves around an idea of implementing a new propulsion technology as a key design element. Batteries have in many ways been a revolution for how we propulsion cars today. It’s one of the best, if not the best, alternative for future power sources in cars. The downside however, is the fact that it dies out after a given range, and as we have learned, a battery takes time to reload. Range anxiety is an issue and IBM is currently trying to solve just that. They will by 2030 launch a new type of battery that will more than double the energy density of some of the most cutting edge lithium ion batteries of today.   The IBM-solution for a new battery is called “Battery 500” and is an open system technology that uses common air as a reagent which upon recharge releases oxygen back to the environment.  The battery would pull in and use oxygen in a similar way to how an internal combustion engine draws in oxygen.
