SolidEnergy Systems is on the Move Again

by Dale Earl

SolidEnergy began in 2012 at North Shore InnoVentures, a nonprofit technology incubator at Cummings Center in Beverly. In 2013, in collaboration with A123 Venture Technologies, it opened a 3,000-square-foot R&D lab in Waltham. SolidEnergy Systems is moving from Waltham to Woburn and expanding its footprint from 3,000 to 23,000 square feet. The MIT spinoff will relocate in August to its new headquarters at Cummings Properties’ 35 Cabot Road property. SolidEnergy developed an “anode-free” rechargeable lithium metal battery with twice the energy density of conventional batteries. Independently verified by third parties, the battery has a demonstrated capacity of 1200Wh/L (watt hours per liter) and 400Wh/kg (watt hours per kilogram), enabling smart phones to last twice as long and electric cars to travel twice as far. The firm is working with leading consumer electronics and auto companies, and expects its battery to be used in drones, watches and wearables, smart phones and, ultimately, electric cars. Pilot-scale battery production will begin in September, with delivery to customers planned for later this year.
