According to the process model and results we obtained from prototype, eventually one kilo of aluminum ends up as 8.6MJ (2.4KW-h) of useful electric power. Tesla car consumes 13.5 KW-h per 100 km. So it will need 5.6 Kg of aluminum, at total cost less than $11.

At a cost of EXACTLY how much energy? TheMadMonk Jun 2012 #1
