The world is looking for more sustainable ways to store and convert energy. Based on its experience with solid-state battery technologies, imec is working on innovative solutions.
Imec's set of energy technologies stems from our innovations in material and design towards solid-state Li-ion batteries. These are very much desired as they overcome several limitations of today’s wet batteries with liquid electrolytes.
Imec paves the way to solid-state batteries with tunable performance specifically towards large as well as small storage systems. Our novel battery technology is suitable for future electric cars and the smart grid as well as for implants and sensors in the internet of things.
Imec aims at developing solid-state batteries with the following characteristics:
Imec develops three battery designs for specific needs:
