New Battery Made By Israel-Based Energy Startup Phinergy Can Power A Car For 1,000 Miles, Farther Than Typical Electric Cars

Phinergy, an Israel-based technology company, has created a car battery that powers an electric vehicle, EV, for as long as 1,000 miles before needing a recharge. Phinergy has successfully integrated an aluminum battery into an EV that triples the traveling distance of some current models. « Our aluminum-air energy systems are superior to conventional batteries in terms of energy density and specific energy, » the company said on its website Friday.

Aluminum is a widely available metal that is easily recycled and contains high amounts of energy (8 kilowatt-hours per kilogram). In conventional aluminum-air batteries, aluminum reacts to oxygen and produces electricity. Phinergy’s innovation uses water and recycles the hydrated aluminum oxide to create an anode, a process that enables a closed and sustainable life cycle or recharge.

« Our systems are mechanically reloaded, avoiding long charging time, » the company said on its site.

The privately held Phinergy, aiming to have an EV model available by 2017, has landed a contract with the Franco-Japanese Renault-Nissan Alliance, a partnership of Renault SA (EPA:RNO) and Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. (TYO:7201).
