StoreDot, To Establish A Global Innovation Hub In USA To Speed Up Development Of Solid-state Batteri
StoreDot, which claim to be a pioneer of extreme fast charging (XFC) technology for electric vehicles, says it will continue its global expansion and the development of future solid-state batteries with the opening of an R&D innovation hub in California, USA.
The companys says its new US-based innovation will provide automotive battery technologies that will significantly enhance the electrified vehicle ownership experience, eradicating range anxiety. In addition, it will work alongside StoreDot's Israel-based R&D headquarters, enabling its XFC automotive battery technologies to be mass-produced by 2024. It will also immediately commence research into next-generation extreme energy density (XED) solid-state capabilities and materials to scale up these advanced technologies for mass production by 2028.
Dr Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO "This new US R&D innovation hub signals that our business is rapidly expanding, as we are scaling up our high-speed charging technologies. Establishing a facility in California will allow us to harness the world-class talent pool available there, with many people and organizations at the forefront of next-generation advancements. This will bolster the development of our world-leading XFC technologies and onto XED solid-state batteries. We are also actively considering establishing a manufacturing partnership in the US, as major automotive manufacturing centres must have the captive capacity, redressing the current imbalance in favour of Asian manufacturers and making batteries where electric vehicles are made."
"Our new US team will work in tandem with our rapidly expanding global network bringing new skills and ideas in the order that we can execute our clear technology roadmap, enabling automotive manufacturers to develop vehicles that overcome range and charging anxiety."
StoreDot says it is in advanced discussions with many of the world's leading automotive manufacturers and is already shipping samples for real-world testing.
