A battery boost with silicon
Silicon is the solution for next generation batteries. It can hold energy 10 times better than graphite and has demonstrated great potential as an anode material for lithium-ion batteries. To realise this potential, the EU-funded SiNERGY project will address the challenge in producing nanostructure silicon using simple and scalable processes that result in thick electrodes that are economically feasible. Specifically, the project proposes a new method for continuous production of nano-engineered electrodes for high energy density and durable lithium-ion batteries. The project will help EU Member States meet European energy storage targets in transport, stationary and emerging sectors, requiring annual cell capacities of at least 200 GWh in the next 5 years.
