The elusive holy grail: the challenge for solid-state batteries
Widely considered to be the technology that enables the next generation of electric vehicles, solid-state batteries have failed to reach scaled manufacture as developers have struggled to overcome production challenges. A hybrid technology has emerged that could leave solid-state batteries redundant in the EV market. However, there is another obstacle for these technologies. Can the lithium industry supply enough lithium metal anodes - the critical performance-enhancing component?
