Large-scale rechargeable lithium battery for power storage and electric vehicle applications

Funding: 2004: $110,000
2005: $110,000
2006: $110,000

Project Member(s): Wang, G.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Projects)

Start year: 2004

Summary: This project aims to develop large-scale rechargeable lithium batteries for power storage and electric vehicles. In order to achieve this target, the related cathode materials, anode materials and electrolyte systems will be developed. The design of battery modules and assembly of prototype lithium ion batteries will be performed. The success of the research will encourage the production of electrode materials and manufacture of rechargeable lithium batteries in Australia. The utilisation of advanced rechargeable lithium batteries in electric vehicles will provide sustainable energy for transportation and greatly reduce green- house emissions in Australian urban areas.
