ALISE Project to Advance Battery Technology
Oxford, England — OXIS Energy is a crucial component of the ALISE project whose target is to develop Lithium Sulfur technology to 500Wh/kg with 2000 cycles by 2019.
ALISE is a pan European collaboration focused on the development and commercial scale-up of new materials as well as understanding the electrochemical processes involved in Lithium Sulfur technology. This project will run for four years and has fifteen partners in total. It will involve the development of the key components of the cell; namely the anode, cathode and electrolyte and will culminate in an ultra-lightweight battery for a SEAT vehicle for testing on-track and public roads. LEITAT is the lead organization involved and will co-ordinate and manage the entire project.The CEO of OXIS Energy, Huw Hampson-Jones said, “OXIS has already advanced Lithium Sulfur technology to achieve 325 Wh/kg. We expect to see the widespread adoption of Electric Vehicles enabled by the work of this project.”
