    West says what's the diff if we are generating our power with coal. OK, forget the fact that even with centrally generated coal power, a car emits less Carbon dioxide than if it runs on petrol. Now start with grid that only uses coal. Use some of that energy to manufacture wind turbines and solar panels. Now the electricity that charges your car is a little greener. Use some of this greener energy to manufacture wind turbines, solar panels and super batteries. The power gets a little greener. Continue the loop until you can retire the coal fired power stations.

    It could be because it has "up to a potential 50 per cent weight reduction" equaling to 150% more for the same size and "material with twice the lithium-ion capacity of graphite alone" so all together you get 300%
