- Rechargeable Mg batteries are projected to achieve energy densities greater than 1200 Wh/l, which is two to three times the energy density of Li-ion technology and well above realistic projections of other novel technologies such as Li-S and Li-air. Both cost and energy projections for Mg batteries greatly exceed the technical targets developed by DOE’s Vehicle Technologies Program (VTP) and its USABC partners. In addition, Mg batteries can be manufactured using processes refined over the full 20-year history of Li-ion batteries, enabling rapid scaling of the technology. Finally, Mg is an abundant, US-based resource. All these factors encouraged the significant investment of ARPA-E in an early-stage company aiming to create a US-based rechargeable Mg battery industry.
