To solve the problems with scale-up of rechargeable all-solid-state lithium polymer battery and improve its cyclability and power density for electric vehicle applications.
To manufacture a 1kWh electric vehicle prototype battery semi-automatically with target characteristics :
capacity 1 kWh
specific energy 150 Wh/kg
specific power 150 W/kg
specific peak power 300 W/kg
service life 1000 cycles
temperature range -20 to +60 C
price 100 ECU/kWh
The work programme is divided into 7 packages :
Material R&D (electrolytes ; electrodes)
Laminate and battery packaging
In an extension of this project, the TU DELFT, NL, and the Universities of St-Andrews and Southampton, GB, carry out basic R and D on the improvement of electrodes and electrolytes.
