Cells with high energy density (or specific energy) provide maximum range but cannot deliver high power or accept high currents for fast charging.
Cells with high power density (or specific power) provide extraordinary acceleration performance, generate less heat, and are capable of fast charging, but suffer from low mileage.
EnPower’s engineered architectures address the physics underlying these fundamental trade-offs, delivering superior energy and power in the same battery cell.
Today, more than 40% of Americans lack the ability to charge a BEV at home. Consumers are demanding both long range and fast charging from electric vehicles, while auto OEMs rely on long, reliable service life to provide warranties.
However, repeated fast-charging of today’s BEV-class Lithium-ion cells causes unwanted aging behavior and rapid capacity fade.
EnPower’s engineered architectures will revolutionize the future of electric mobility by delivering both long-range and extreme fast charging (XFC) with no degradation of battery life.
To break away from the trade-off between energy and power, EnPower designs multilayer electrodes with strategic porosity, tortuosity, and other profiles to facilitate rapid ion transport through the thickness of electrodes.
To ensure scalability of the technology, the mantra at EnPower since 2018 has been, “No novel materials, no novel equipment.”
