Extreme Fast Charging Batteries with Extended Cycle Life for EVs
Project Innovation + Advantages:
The Ohio State University (Ohio State) has developed a prototype high-power battery technology that can tolerate rapid charging while demonstrating longevity far beyond the current state-of-the-art lithium-ion cells. Ohio State will scale up the prototype by (1) addressing manufacturing challenges in achieving large-format, commercial-quality cells (2) allowing for drop-in compatibility with existing battery components, and (3) optimizing battery performance for cold temperatures. When scaled, the technology can potentially double the usable battery lifetime, reduce pack size, reduce cell and battery cost, and enable rapid charging accelerating the introduction of affordable entry-level electric vehicles.
