SeNSE – New European H2020 Project

SENSE

SOLVIONIC is a partner of a new European H2020 project, “SeNSE” on Lithium-ion battery with silicon anode, nickel-rich cathode and in-cell sensor for electric vehicles.

The research in the SeNSE project is part of the "European Battery Alliance" initiative and is supported by the EU research funding programme Horizon 2020. Partners of SeNSE are conducting research on next-generation lithium-ion batteries – the so-called "generation 3b". In contrast to current traction batteries, this next generation will have higher energy density and improved cell chemistry and battery management system: Instead of pure graphite anodes, the aim is to use silicon-graphite composites. The content of critical cobalt in the cathode will be further reduced. New additives in the electrolyte and interphase design approaches will slow down battery aging and extend cycle life. New sensors will also contribute to a longer service life and improve fast charging capability by supplying data from inside the battery cells to the battery management system. This data should allow a much more refined temperature management compared to today's lithium-ion cells.
