  • CSIR has launched a project titled, ”CSIR Innovation Centre for Next Generation Energy Storage Solutions (ICeNGESS)”
  • It aims to produce LIBs on a 100 MW scale in order to address dependency on imports of lithium cells from China for final battery packs required for electric vehicles

IIT Hyderabad-incubated start-up PURE EV said that it is partnering with CSIR-Central Electro Chemical Research Institute (CECRI) to indigenise lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology for electric vehicles. It has signed an MoU with CSIR-CECRI to undertake joint research on production of battery packs, validation of LIB cells and addressing the specific requirements to ensure the suitability of developed LIBs for critical performance at the Standard Operating Procedure (SoP) conditions as per a statement by PURE EV.

PURE EV CEO Rohit Vadera said that it will will work closely with CECRI team in enabling them to realise the full potential of their initiative. It will carry out extensive testing for performance validation across various EV 2W (two-wheeler) models across the pan India terrain conditions and benchmark with respect to the imported cells and providing them crucial feedback to achieve mass scale commercialisation, he added. He also said that the company’s extensive R&D work in the battery thermal management system gives it unique insights in the battery performance and lifecycle enhancement

CSIR has launched a project titled, ”CSIR Innovation Centre for Next Generation Energy Storage Solutions (ICeNGESS)”. It aims to produce LIBs on a 100 MW scale in order to address dependency on imports of lithium cells from China for final battery packs required for electric vehicles.

The company statement quoting NITI Aayog member V K Saraswat said that 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.

Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS) and safety

He further said that since 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.

He added that the collaboration between PURE EV and CECRI will lead to important outcomes on areas like Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS) and safety which are critical for mass scale commercialisation of these cells. . NITI Aayog strongly encourages such partnerships which can lead to a more flexible supply chain for the evolution for an important industry like electric vehicles.

CSIR-CECRI Director N Kalaiselvi said CECRI is working on mission mode under the project titled “CSIR Innovation Centre for Next Generation Energy Storage Solutions (ICeNGESS)”. It will enable indigenous Lithium-Ion technology to help the country in addressing the requirements of its mission on electrification of two/three/four wheelers apart from stationary and storage applications.

Kalaiselvi added that the emphasis of this program falls under the umbrella of Make in India and Aatmanirbhar Bharat initiatives of the GoI. It is looking forward to a very fruitful collaboration with PURE EV who will be our industry partner in the battery pack assembly, testing and performance benchmarking. It intends that such partnerships open up doors for further collaboration opportunities
