New EV Battery Technology

March 7, 2022

Battery technology plays a vital role in the development and growth of electric vehicles. OneD Battery Sciences, a leader in EV battery technology, introduced SINANODE, a type of technology that shows promise for the future of silicon-based EV batteries.

The SINANODE process fuses silicon nanowires onto graphite powders. OneD Battery Sciences claims this technology triples the energy density of the anode and cuts costs per kWh in half. When a battery has a higher energy density, it can increase its range and the nanowires shorten charging time.

Optimizing performance and reducing costs can greatly benefit the EV industry and support EV adoption.


Making Electric Vehicles More Sustainable with Silicon Nanowire Technology

The key to silicon anode solutions: Cost

November 24, 2021

Charging an EV battery is simply storing electrons and lithium ions in the appropriate electrode of the cells in the battery pack. Today, almost all the anode electrodes store electrical energy in natural or synthetic graphite particles coated onto the current collector in large EV cell factories. A few leading EV models (for example Tesla Y, Tesla 3, and Porsche Taycan) contain a small amount (a few percentage points) of silicon oxide additives mixed with the graphite, to increase the cells energy and power density, hence increasing EV range and charging speed for a better driving experience versus graphite-only EVs.
