NASA researchers are chasing a dream: improved solid-state batteries capable of powering electric aircraft. The agency’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland is home to the Solid State Architecture Batteries for Enhanced Rechargeability and Safety (SABERS) initiative. According to NASA, solid-state batteries, unlike ordinary lithium-ion batteries, do not contain liquids thatContinue Reading


Sakuu and NGK have established a partnership to create 3D-printed solid-state batteries. NGK will contribute to the development of solid-state batteries by providing ceramic materials for present and future battery production. Sakuu now produces lithium-metal batteries with an energy density of 800 Wh/l and a continuous discharge rate of 3CContinue Reading

Solid-state battery

Transport & Environment (T&E), a European NGO whose mission is “a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate, and environment,” commissioned Minviro, a raw material life cycle analysis firm, this month to compare the carbon emissions from emerging solid-state battery technology to currentContinue Reading

Solid Power

Solid Power, a Colorado-based startup, first time announced a collaboration with BMW, in 2017, to produce batteries without a semi-liquid electrolyte. Since then, Ford has also become a significant investor. Five years later, the business announces the completion of a battery production line capable of producing 15,000 battery cells perContinue Reading


Li-Metal, a Canadian firm, is working on lithium metal anodes and lithium metal manufacturing technology. The business has a patent-pending manufacturing technique that uses lithium carbonate as a raw material instead of lithium chloride, which is readily accessible. This reduces the cost of lithium metal manufacturing while also reducing theContinue Reading

theion battery

Theion, a German battery firm, is promising a new sulfur battery technology that may enable common electric cars to go 900 miles (1448 Kms) on a single charge. Sulfur is inexpensive in comparison to lithium-ion technology. Sulfur is essential to Theion’s technology. Sulphur, unlike lithium, uses significantly less energy toContinue Reading
