Solid Power itself is a company from Colorado that develops a solid-state battery for electric vehicles. The solid-state battery itself is expected to be a game changer to make electric vehicles more affordable.
Doug Campbell, Head of Executive and Co-Founder Solid Power, said his company had established a pilot production line to be tested by the manufacturing of electric vehicles. In addition, companies are also looking for partners to produce solid-state batteries no later than 2026.
One of the most potential partners according to Campbell is a Korean SK innovation that built a battery joint venture along with Ford on Tennessee and Kentucky.
Regarding the developed solid-state battery, Campbell refuses to provide specific details.
Solid-state batteries have sulfide-based solid-state electrolytes, media that through lithium ions flow between positive and negative electrodes during charging and release.
