High energy density and safe solid-state lithium-metal battery to extend electric vehicle range
Electric vehicles (EVs) play an important role in the bid to meet global goals on climate change. Although the market for EV batteries has seen consistently high growth rates over the past few years, currently the battery technology is dominated by players from Asian countries. The EU-funded SAFELiMOVE project intends to increase Europe's representation in this market by gathering key European actors in the battery sector, including industrial materials producers, battery manucfacturer, R&D centres and the automotive industry. The project aims to develop a new lithium-metal battery cell technology based on a safe, reliable and high-performance solid-state electrolyte. Its high specific energy (450 Wh/kg), fast charging and long cycle life is expected to extend EV range, helping the transport sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
