New efficient Lithium batteries for electric vehicles

The transport sector is responsible for around one quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emission. Electric mobility must be the next transport mode to contribute to the EU overall goal to reduce GHG emissions by 80-95% by 2050. It is expected that e-mobility will represent 70% of the total rechargeable Li-ion battery cell market’s value in 2022. At the same time, 70% of the EU electricity should be produced by renewable energies. Hence, the electric battery storage is vital in this transition to clean mobility and clean energy systems.


The ASTRABAT project will find a better Li-ion cell architecture with an all-solid-state electrolyte design suitable for the new high-energy electrode materials and mass production


The new ASTRABAT cell will enable:

  • Higher energy density and power
  • Increased safety and longer life cycle
  • Larger operating temperature range
  • Lower cost to reduce costs of electric vehicles

ASTRABAT started in January 2020 and will run until June 2023. The project is coordinated by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in France and run by a consortium of fourteen partners from eight countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Ukraine).
