Nexeon leading $13.6M project SUNRISE to advance silicon anode technology for higher capacity EV batteries

By mmillikin Nexeon, a UK-based developer of silicon anode materials for Li-ion batteries (earlier post), and its partners have been awarded £7 million (US$9.5 million) in Innovate UK funding toward a £10-million (US$13.6-million) project to develop significantly better materials for Li-ion batteries. The work is an essential step to achieving electric vehicles (EVs) with a range of 400 miles and above.

The project, named SUNRISE (after Synthomer, UCL & Nexeon’s Rapid Improvement in the Storage of Energy), will develop better battery materials based on silicon as a replacement for carbon in the cell anode, and optimize cell designs for automotive application.

Innovate UK will
