the performance of lithium battery is improved a notch
lithium ion batteries are used in traditional graphite anode can only reach less than 600wh/l of the energy density of silicon anode; advanced battery only has 800wh/l energy density of ultra-thin lithium metal anode battery energy density can be more than 1000wh/l. although many lithium metal anode batteries such as lithium air, lithium sulfur battery is far from the practical application, the mit energy company using solid lithium cobalt oxide cathode is mature, successful in core 2ah on the implementation of the 1337wh/l energy density, and to consumer electronics products in 2016 large-scale application.
the same volume, two times the capacity, the same capacity, half the volume, its cost is only 80% of the traditional lithium-ion battery. future mobiles phoness will be as thin as credit cards, and one charge can be used two times longer. wearable, such as smart watches strap is the battery. an electric car has a 500 mile range of electric energy.
solid energy does not compete in crowded and fragmented anode spaces, but his material (negative and electrolyte) is compatible with most of the cathode material. the se eliminates the diaphragm, leaving traditional diaphragm companies losing their edge. se competes mainly on electrolytes and negative electrodes. se's ultra-thin metal negative electrode enables battery design to reach almost “ no negative ” the state provides unprecedented high energy density, which is the biggest difference and advantage of se and other battery materials companies. and the negative electrode of se must use se electrolyte to be stable. the negative electrode and electrolyte of se are a set.
the company has solid energy at massachusetts institute of technology's global patent exclusive right to use and obtain a series of well-known science and technology awards, including: r& d100 (oscar award for innovation of science and technology), the u.s. department of energy clean energy prize, massachusetts clean energy council award, mit clean energy prize.
