SPICY - Silicon and polyanionic chemistries and architectures of Li-ion cell for high energy battery

Electric vehicles are on the verge of becoming commonplace on roads throughout Europe. However, one of the major technological challenges is the cost and performance of the vehicles' battery.  Li-ion battery technology can fulfil these requirements as a constant, efficient, clean, safe and renewable power supply. Thus, the development of new cell chemistries and architectures is an encouraging way to achieve the power and energy demands which could lead to greater battery electric vehicle autonomy.  

Main Challenges:     

  1. Improvement of Li-ion cell performance by demonstrating industrial scale prototypes   
  2. Reduction of battery cost  

To meet the demands for next generation of Li-ion cells a high voltage and larger electrode capacity is in the focus of current battery research. One of the main objectives in SPICY is to work on the family of polyanionic phosphates bound to metals. This active material allows higher potentials resulting in an increased energy density and reduced battery weight.
