UK project to double range of electric vehicle with silicon batteries
UK startup Nexeon is leading a £10m project to develop new silicon materials for Li-ion batteries that will provide electric vehicles (EVs) with a range of over 400 miles.

“The challenges in developing the next generation of range enabling EV battery technology creates new opportunities for partners in the material supply chain,” said Dr Robin Harrison, Synthomer’s Global Innovation Director. “Synthomer is pleased to build upon its existing experience in battery binder systems in order to realise the revolutionary potential in the SUNRISE silicon anode.”

The funding comes from InnovateUK as part of the Faraday Battery Challenge. This offers a co-ordinated programme of competitions across research, innovation and scale-up for the first time and is the first in a series of Research Challenges managed by Innovate UK as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). The Faraday Battery Challenge is an investment of £246m over four years to help UK businesses seize the opportunities presented by the transition to a low carbon economy, to ensure the UK leads the world in the design, development and manufacture of batteries for electric vehicles.
