Ford To Gasmobiles: Look Out, Solid State EV Batteries Are Coming
Full article at Clean Technica. Sounds like more than a pipe dream.We know that Ford is interested in all solid-state technology because the Colorado based company Solid Power just announced that Ford has joined a group of heavy-hitting investors that are putting up the big bucks for a stake in the future of EV battery technology.
Solid Power is a spinoff from research at the University of Colorado at Boulder aimed at improving the range of EV batteries. Not just any old research. A while back this particular project nailed down a $3.4 million grant from the US Department of Energy’s ARPA-E office for supporting cutting edge clean tech.
They already have a head start because Solid Power already has its first fully automated, roll-to-roll production facility in the works. It should be up and running before you know it, as in sometime before the end of June.
