However, that could soon change thanks to researchers at Nanotek Instruments Inc. and their subsidiary Angstron Materials Inc. The firms have developed a “new paradigm” that could see the production of energy storage devices that would enable electric vehicles to be fully charged in less than a minute. Not just that, but the technology could also be used for renewable energy storage such as storing solar power.
