SolidEnergy is a winner of the 2012 National Business Plan Competition.
SolidEnergy is a battery company founded in the spring of 2012. Its mission is to develop cutting-edge battery technologies to meet the world's growing energy storage demand. It is comprised of a team of MIT and Harvard-trained scientists and entrepreneurs with experience in batteries, energy startups, and a committed passion to change the world. SolidEnergy is developing a Polymer Ionic Liquid (PIL) rechargeable lithium battery that dramatically improves both the safety and energy density of rechargeable lithium batteries. The battery can safely operate from −40 °C to 250 °C, and has the potential for 4X the energy density of a conventional lithium-ion battery. This dramatically increases the range capability of electric vehicles (EVs), speeds up the adoption of EVs worldwide, and helps reduce global CO2 emissions.
