Technology Description:

Tyfast Energy will develop a High sYmmetric PowER (HYPER) Battery that leverages a novel oxide-based anode and high conductivity electrolyte that has been demonstrated to perform well over a wide temperature range. This new HYPER combination of electrode material and electrolyte chemistry will enable a high-energy density, < 6 minutes ultrafast-charging battery with > 3,000 cycle life. Tyfast Energy’s novel anode, made with earth abundant metals with stable domestic supply chain, has fast lithium transport and has demonstrated 15,000 stable cycles operating under <3 mins ultrafast charging conditions. If successful, the anode and electrolyte developed under this project will enable batteries to exceed the EVs4ALL cycle life target, reducing life cycle cost and recycling, enabling a meaningful used EV market, and facilitating seamless vehicle-to-grid operations.

Potential Impact:

EVs4ALL’s primary objective is to increase the domestic adoption of new and used EVs by enabling safe, resilient, fast-charging batteries with improved performance at low temperatures.


Solutions will target the use of “noncritical” battery materials, while minimizing the use of cobalt and nickel. A reduced dependence on the importation of critical metals supports U.S. energy independence.


80% adoption of EVs in the U.S. could reduce overall CO2 emissions by 800 million tons/year.


80% adoption of EVs in the U.S. could reduce annual energy consumption by 4 quadrillion British Thermal Units.
