Scalable silicon anodes for high energy lithium ion batteries
Batteries are in almost everything we use, almost every day of our lives. Whether it is your phone, laptop, or eventually all the vehicles that we drive, batteries will affect most areas in our life. To combat climate change, it is critical that we move to a majority of fully electric vehicles and renewable energy within the next decade. The key to both is the ability to store energy quickly, safely, and to store enough for hundreds of miles of range, or hours without wind or sunlight. The GDI solution aims at providing large scale manufacturing of 15 minute fast-charging energy storage technologies with 30% higher energy to increase utilization of renewable energy, mass transportation, and electric mobility. Also, the GHG footprint of a Lithium-Ion NMC battery using GDI silicon-based anode is estimated to be 92.5 kgCO2e per kWh, 21% lower on average than traditional Li-Ion NMC batteries. GDI’s mission is to develop cleantech that can scale to large volumes at attractive economics.
