Today is quite an important day in the Indian EV (Electric Vehicle) manufacturing scene. This is because GODI India, the first Indian company to receive BIS certification for selling lithium-ion cells made with homegrown technology, has launched India’s first 5.2 Ah 21700 cylindrical lithium-ion cell with an energy density of 275 Wh/s. Another milestone has been achieved by generating sales. KG based on silicon anode technology. The electrode composition is developed locally as per the market requirement. But how does it help us? By using silicon in the anode, an electric vehicle can achieve 15-20% more range than graphite on a single charge due to increased energy density. Now, this is interesting.
Aiming to address the never-ending passenger demand for electric vehicle range concerns, GODI India is advancing the development of high-energy-density lithium-ion cells using silicon, which is at the Earth’s crust. is one of the most abundant elements.
This is what Mr. Mahesh Godi, Founder and CEO of GODI India says – “We are pleased to announce the production of 5.2 Ah Lithium Ion cells at our Hyderabad facility. Two, three more in India and around the world. With the boom in the four-wheeler EV sector, the need for high energy cells has become imperative. We have already supplied 5.0Ah cells to the top six OEMs in India and plan to supply 5.2Ah cells in the near future. We are confident that these high energy density cells developed with indigenous technology will be a major milestone for ‘Made in India’ for the domestic and international market.
Giving more details about future plans, Mr. Mahesh That said, GODI India is continuously innovating in the anode and cathode areas and is planning to achieve >5.6Ah high energy and high power cells for the first time. GODI India strongly plans for a pilot production facility of 100 MWh for 5.0 – 5.2Ah cells followed by a one GWh plant to meet the peak demand requirements of electric two-wheelers, which is 50GWh by 2030. is more than, for a special electric two-wheeler battery. segment.
With a lithium-ion cell market size of US$5 billion for E2W by 2030, silicon is the future of energy storage as it can store nearly ten times the energy of a traditional graphite anode. However, it comes with a volume expansion of about 400% during its charge and discharge process, making it difficult to stabilize. GODI India has developed an eco-friendly water-based electrode manufacturing process to stabilize silicon, which has been successfully used in the production of 5.2 Ah lithium-ion cells. In an effort to create a sustainable future, GODI India is also practicing domestic, clean and environment-friendly processes to achieve its high energy density targets and ESG guidelines.
