Excitement is mounting for new breakthroughs in battery technologies, especially those that offer the significant increases in energy density needed to support wide-scale electrification of airplanes, shipping, and other sectors that are leading producers of harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently suggested that mass production of 400 Wh/kg batteries with a high cycle life will be possible in three to four years. This technology has already arrived—and LAVLE USA is leading this charge with cells offering more than double the energy density of even the most advanced lithium-ion batteries currently on the market.
LAVLE announced in June 2020 that its lithium metal battery and solid electrolyte battery energy storage systems, currently in prototype testing and enabled by battery cells developed by 3DOM Inc., have already achieved energy density of 420 Wh/kg in full-size large format cells. These batteries also operate at 25 degrees Centigrade ambient temperature, and offer stringent safety levels essential for broad commercial application in aviation, maritime, rail and other sectors. LAVLE is currently preparing mass production facilities for these next-generation cells in the United States.
“We are thrilled that LAVLE’s advancements are more than doubling battery energy density, and bringing dramatic carbon emissions reduction within our grasp,” said LAVLE CEO Jason Nye. “This is another step forward for LAVLE as we bring to market next generation technologies with meaningful environmental impact.”
