Pure EV signed MoU for indigenous li-ion technology for EV
IIT Hyderabad-incubated startup Pure EV partnered with CSIR-CECRI (Central Electro Chemical Research Institute) on indigenizing Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) technology for electric vehicles.
Pure EV signed MoU with CSIR- CECRI
The initiative aims to support the Centre’s Atmanirbhar Bharat initiatives in that regard it has signed an MoU with CSIR- CECRI to undertake joint research on the production of battery packs, validation of LIB cells and addressing the specific requirements to make sure the suitability of developed LIBs for critical performance at the Standard Operating Procedure conditions (SoP).
The lithium-ion battery is the most reliable and preferable battery for electric vehicles all over the world. At present India imports lithium from China which is a great dependence on other countries.
CSIR has launched a project titled, ‘CSIR Innovation Centre for Next Generation Energy Storage Solutions (ICeNGESS) to produce LIBs on a 100 MW scale.
V.K. Saraswat, Member, NITI Aayog, Government of India, said, “Achieving self-reliance and developing core competence in Lithium cells manufacturing is critical for the emergence of electric vehicles as a predominant mode of transportation in India. Since we are starting from a low base, it is critical that the eminent institutions working in the cell manufacturing also collaborate with the industry partners who can carry out accelerated testing to provide the necessary feedback for further improvements.”
Rohit Vadera, Chief Executive Officer, Pure EV, said, “This collaboration with CSIR-CECRI to manufacture lithium batteries with indigenous cells for our high-speed EV 2W is a matter of pride for Pure EV due to the long term interests of the nation. Our extensive R&D work in the battery thermal management system gives us unique insights into battery performance and lifecycle enhancement. We will work closely with the CECRI team in enabling them to realise the full potential of their initiative. We will carry out extensive testing for performance validation across various EV 2W models across the pan India terrain conditions and benchmark with respect to the imported cells and providing them crucial feedback to achieve mass scale commercialization.”
