Dutch startup wins €15M to develop first solid-state battery factory


As the world electrifies, the race is on to build better batteries that take you further, charge faster, are safer, and more sustainable.  Dutch startup LionVolt is developing 3D solid-state batteries that it says ticks all the above — and it’s just raised €15mn to scale up production. LionVolt — a spinout from TNO’s Holst Centre in Eindhoven, the Netherlands — is working on solid-state batteries that don’t contain the liquid lithium common in standard lithium-ion devices.  Instead, the batteries are made up of a thin film containing billions of solid pillars, creating a patented 3D architecture with a large…
