NEDO Begins the Development of Common Base Technology for the Practical Application of Innovative Batteries

-Aims to Realize Electric Vehicles with Cruise Performance Equivalent to that of Gasoline-Powered Vehicles-
May  18,2016
New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)

NEDO has begun the development of common base technology for the practical application of innovative batteries that could surpass the performance limits of lithium-ion batteries (LIB).

In this project, researchers from universities, research institutions, and companies will collaborate and work side by side to develop batteries that have necessary capabilities for electric vehicle batteries including energy density, durability and safety in a balanced way and with a high level of reliability, by building a prototype 5Ah capacity battery. The project aims to develop batteries to realize electric vehicles that will have the same cruise performance as gasoline-powered cars and will be available within an affordable price range by 2030.
