High energy lithium sulphur cells and batteries

ALISE (Advance Lithium Sulphur Batteries for Hybrid Electric Vehicle) focuses on the development and transition to commercial production and on understanding the electrochemical processes involved in lithium-sulphur batteries.

2015 / 2019 – Reference: H2020-NMP-GV-2014 – project n°666157

It aims to develop an innovative battery technology capable of meeting the needs of the European automotive industry in line with the European materials roadmap. The project aims to design batteries capable of reaching 500Wh/Kg in stable LiS cells.

It includes activities dedicated to durability, testing and life-cycle analysis that will ensure the safety and adequate cyclability of the batteries developed at a cost that should remain competitive. Initial materials research will be intensified during the course of the project, so that pilot-scale quantities of materials will be introduced into the new cell architectures, contributing to the advancement of the state of the art.

The project’s approach will enable real breakthroughs to be made in terms of components, cell integration and associated architecture. New materials will be developed and optimised for the anode, cathode, electrolyte and separator. Complete panels of specific tools and associated modelling will be developed from the single cell to the battery pack. Activities will focus on the development of new materials and processes at TRL4 level.

The lithium-sulphur technology will be demonstrated up to battery level, with on-board validation. Validation of the prototype (17kWh) with its corresponding range (100km) will take place on track. ALISE is more than a linear bottom-up approach from materials to the cell. This project aims to lay the foundations of solid resources for obtaining stable unit cells, with an additional top-down approach from the final application to the optimisation of the unit cell.
