Enevate Corporation, an advanced lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology company, announced that LG Chem, a leading high volume battery manufacturer in South Korea, has participated in Enevate’s recent funding.
This investment is a nod to the viability of Enevate’s technology which could enable Electric Vehicles (EVs) to charge in the same time as gas cars without compromise.
Enevate’s HD-Energy Technology for EVs allows Li-ion batteries to be charged to 75% capacity in five minutes, while also providing higher energy densities than available for today’s current long-range EVs. They can also safely charge and discharge down to -40°C and capture more energy during regenerative braking, extending their range in cold climates.
“The strategic investment from LG Chem indicates the significance of our technology because it could directly address consumer concerns with EVs, such as charge time and range anxiety, cost, and safety,” said Robert A. Rango, Enevate’s President and CEO. “We look forward to our strategic partnerships with companies such as LG Chem to commercialise advanced batteries that will accelerate the adoption of EVs worldwide.”
Enevate offers a complete HD-Energy Technology and licensing package to rapidly enable global EV automotive and EV battery manufacturers to quickly achieve production volume and drive adoption of next-generation features that take EVs to the next level.
