Solid-State Battery Developer Solid Power Named “Emerging Cleantech Company Of The Year”
Solid-state batteries could represent the future of electric transport, at least that’s what solid-state battery developer Solid Power and the Colorado Cleantech Industries Association thinks:
“Solid Power Inc. has been named “Emerging Cleantech Company of the Year” by the Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA). Solid Power, founded in 2012 based on research conducted at the University of Colorado at Boulder under funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is developing solid-state rechargeable battery products for government and commercial markets, including aerospace and electric vehicles, where high energy, safe operation and long life are required. “

What’ Solid Power up to these days?
“In its proposal for NASA Phase I SBIR funding, Solid Power said that its work in the Phase I project would demonstrate the feasibility of surpassing 600 Wh/kg and 1000 Wh/L at the cell level—a 3-5X improvement over the best battery technologies planned for NASA missions today.”
Much of Solid Power’s current work is geared toward aerospace, but electric transportation will benefit from advances in solid-state battery technology.
