Graphene enhanced copper offers EV edge

GM funded research results in improved copper wire, process Metal Tech News – October 28, 2020

Working with General Motors, researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have discovered that a tiny bit of graphene can increase the conductivity of copper wire by 5%.

"That may seem like a small amount, but it can make a big difference in motor efficiency," the Washington state lab penned in an article on the findings. "Higher conductivity also means that less copper is needed for t...
