LiNa Energy is founded upon a novel sodium cell which unlocks the high power/energy density potential of an established battery chemistry whilst giving many additional product advantages such as vastly improved safety (compared to Li-battery), and reduced product complexity. In addition, the unique LiNa cell negates the requirement for expensive and difficult to source cobalt.
The main objective of this project is to take the LiNa concept and apply modern material engineering to demonstrate successful operation. Working alongside LiNa are the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and Lancaster University.
The project is funded by Innovate UK through the Faraday Battery Challenge : Innovation Feasibility Studies - round 2
