Executive Summary - State of Research and Development in Electric Vehicle Battery Technology
Energy storage for electric vehicles (EVs) is a continually evolving set of technologies owing to the introduction of next-generation chemistries (such as lithium-sulfur batteries, solid-state batteries, inorganic liquid electrolytes, high-voltage cathodes, and silicon and lithium metal anodes) and the gradually declining use of older chemistries.
In this paper, we explore battery designs, chemistries, and cell formats, and assess their potential in making the transition to EVs economically feasible in a resource-secure way for India. The report focuses on the current commercially available battery technologies as well as on battery research aimed at developing alternative technologies. The study explores the research and development (R&D) landscape for these batteries and investigates how the R&D community can work collaboratively and effectively with industry to address the challenges associated with the manufacture and uptake of battery technologies.
