Haryana-based Sanvaru is expanding its lithium battery production capacity to 400 MWh per year by setting up a new factory in Haridwar.
Researchers from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, have found that nanoscopic refractory metal layers like tungsten could improve dendrite growth tolerance in electrolytes of solid-state Li-ion batteries. The team collaborated with researchers from Carnegie Mellon University.
Alsym will produce its new batteries – made of readily available materials, without lithium or cobalt – for electric vehicles, stationary storage, and marine applications.
Battery startup Nunam is working with German carmaker Audi AG and the Audi Environmental Foundation to roll out electric rickshaws powered by used Audi e-tron used batteries. It expects to launch the e-rickshaws in India at some point early next year.
Nexcharge will manufacture lithium energy storage products for electric vehicles and grid-based applications at its newly opened plant in Gujarat.
Bhago Mobility Solutions, the green energy vertical of automotive parts manufacturer Modern Automotive, will invest $16 million in a partnership with Pastiche. They plan to jointly develop solid-state and lithium-ion batteries for electric mobility and energy storage.
The Indian electric mobility player, which plans gigawatt-scale battery cell manufacturing, has embraced Israel-based StoreDot’s extreme-fast battery technology that charges from 0 to 100% in just five minutes.
Under their clean energy partnership, both countries also agreed to cooperate in the disposal, recycling, and reclamation of valuable materials from batteries, solar panels, turbine blades, and electronics.
The annual demand for lithium-ion batteries in India will reach 116 GWh in FY 2029-30, with electric vehicles (EVs) accounting for 90%.
The lead-acid battery major, which is into lithium battery assembly in a joint venture with Swiss firm Leclanche, will set up a multi-gigawatt lithium-ion cell manufacturing plant as it strives to become more cost-competitive and better serve its customers.
