Several automakers interested in electric vehicles are turning to solid-state batteries for next-gen electric cars in the “post Li-ion era.”Now a startup developing all solid-state batteries (#ASSB) secured backing from several high-profile investors, including several automakers, as it claims a breakthrough for the technology that will enable better electric cars.
Solid Power is a Colorado-based startup that spun out of a battery research program at the University of Colorado Boulder.
They have already attracted investments from important companies, like A123 Systems and more recently BMW, which planned to validate their battery technology for the automotive market.
They are now working with two automakers and two battery cell suppliers for the auto industry.
While it’s an important technology to follow, I like to remind everyone that an important step, like solid-state, is not required to enable electric vehicles to be competitive with petrol cars.
