プレゼンテーション概要

The pursuit of high energy density is at the heart of smartphones, wearable gadgets and electric vehicles - devices that are quickly becoming extensions of our bodies. Lithium, which is the lightest and most electronegative metal in the periodic table, is a natural choice as anode. However, because lithium metal is highly reactive it was sidelined during much of the 1990s and 2000s and replaced with Li-ion batteries that do not contain lithium metal. With recent advances in electrolyte, lithium metal is making a strong comeback. SolidEnergy was founded in 2012 during the turmoil of the lithium battery industry meltdown. It revolutionized portable energy storage with the introduction of the "anode-free" lithium metal battery in 2014. SolidEnergy's two material platforms, dual-layer electrolyte and ultra-thin lithium metal anode, provide transformational energy density and safety across all rechargeable lithium batteries and can be seamlessly integrated into existing Li-ion manufacturing capability.

講演者の経歴 (Qichao Hu)

Received his PhD in Applied Physics from Harvard and BS in Physics from MIT. Started SolidEnergy during his postdoctoral work at MIT. Raised almost $20M in two rounds of equity financing from some of the world's largest strategic investors; formed joint development agreements with leading equipment and materials suppliers, battery manufacturers, consumer electronics and auto OEMs; built a team of world class scientists and engineers; led the product development effort to demonstrate 2X in energy density in real 2Ah cells in less than 2 years, unprecedented in the industry; and spearheaded the design and construction of a brand new state-of-the-art pilot facility.
