SolidEnergy, the developer of the “anode-free” battery delivering ultra high energy density and safety with 1200 Wh/L and 400 Wh/kg, announced that it has raised $12M in a Series B round. “Strategic investments will help us build an ecosystem around our anode-free battery by establishing partnerships with equipment suppliers, battery manufacturers and battery end users,” said Qichao Hu, SolidEnergy’s Founder and CEO.
SolidEnergy’s two material platforms, dual-layer electrolyte and ultra-thin lithium metal anode, provide transformational energy density and safety across all rechargeable lithium batteries and can be seamlessly integrated into existing Li-ion manufacturing capability. The final applications include drones, watches & wearables, smart phones, and electric cars.
