Research and Development Initiative for Scientific Innovation of New Generation Batteries 2

Project overview

Project period: FY2016 to FY2020, FY2019 budget: JPY 3.4 billion
PL: ABE Takeshi (Professor, Kyoto University)

Achieving the practical application of innovative storage batteries that surpass the performance of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) installed in electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and have a cruising distance rivalling that of gasoline-powered vehicles is expected to help realize the dissemination of EVs and PHEVs. The goal of this project is for universities, research institutes, and companies to cooperate within a “centralized lab” framework that brings researchers from participating entities to a single location in order to develop the world's best state-of-the-art analysis technologies and achieve goals in the shortest possible period of time without the need for reworking. By utilizing these technologies, this project will actually prototype storage batteries with 5 Ah-class capacity for the research and development of innovative storage batteries that offer the level of performance needed for on-board batteries in areas such as high energy density, durability, and safety.
