We are currently researching nanostructured electrode materials which would lead to the production of high-energy-density, long-service-life battery cells and not only as a stand-alone product but also as a basis for other more complex energy storage systems. The electrode materials used includes stabilized NCM materials and of Si-based nanocomposites. We have also developing a novel class of high-power, high-energy, and high-safety battery packs (in both 6T form and Group 31) for vehicles applications. This class of LiFePO4 based battery pack is equipped with proprietary thermal management and protection circuit module (PCM) and thus provides much enhanced safety, reliability and thermal stability. The battery systems having been investigated also include those for energy storage and electric vehicles.
