Metal oxide Nanomaterial electrolytes for all-solid-state sodium-Ion battery - Year 2

Batteries are ideally suited for energy storage application due to their pollution-free operation, high efficiency, flexible energy and power characteristics to meet different grid functions, cycle life, and low maintenance. The proposed project aims to develop a non-explosive, non-toxic, non-flammable all-solid-state sodium-ion battery with a commercially competitive business case for applications in grid-scale battery storage, the electric vehicle industry, and consumer electronics. Switching to abundant sodium based solid-state batteries will be a solution to the existing issues with the current batteries in terms of safety and cost. Geometric Energy Corporation will get the benefit of patenting new battery technology starting from the material preparation to the commercialization.
