Our major breakthrough involving ultrathin lithium anodes and remarkable advances in polymer technology have positioned Hydro-Québec as a world leader in the development of solid-electrolyte batteries.
Hydro-Québec prepares for the arrival of a revolutionary solid-state battery
Ultrathin lithium metal anode
We are currently developing an ultrathin lithium metal anode—the only one of its kind in the world.
This advanced technology can be used in conjunction with solid-state batteries developed by Hydro-Québec, as well as in the design of batteries currently on the market.
The unique and extraordinary feature of ultrathin lithium anode technology is unparalleled performance. It can also be adapted to different cathode materials and significantly reduces production costs.
Relying on our own innovations to rethink tomorrow’s transport solutions
Solid polymer electrolyte
The solid polymer is a main component in this new generation of batteries. The solid electrolyte placed between the anode and cathode significantly decreases the weight of battery cells, which in turn increases energy and creates a particularly safe battery.
Solid-state lithium metal batteries promise to be a next important technology milestone, having a very high energy density, are long lasting and very light. In addition, the technology is considered a much safer alternative because it does not rely on flammable liquid electrolytes.
