From the 12th to the 13th of November, the consortium of the ALISE, the only reserach project on lithium-sulphur batteries for cars in Europe, held its general assembly in Dresden, Germany. The event was hosted and organised by Fraunhofer IWS, partner of ALISE. Partners discussed the activities done during the first months of the proejct and more importantly the next steps to reach its goal: To achieve 500 Wh/Kg stable LiS cell.
Activities are focused on the elaboration of new materials and processes at TRL4. Demonstration of the lithium Sulphur technology will be until batteries pack levels with validation onboard. Validation of prototype (17 kWh) with its driving range corresponding (100 km) will be done on circuit. ALISE is more than a linear bottom-up approach from materials to cell.
