Solid-State Battery? American Expert: Waiting for Another 10 Years
Chaoyang Wang, a member of National Academy of Inventors (NAI), recently stated that mass production of all-solid-state batteries should be achieved after 2030. However, if there is a huge scientific breakthrough, it may happen within 10 years. According to the current progress, it should take another ten years to mature scientifically and manufacturing technology before mass production. At present, the energy density of liquid lithium-ion batteries is 300Wh/kg, which has reached a limit. The next step or the next generation of batteries will be solid-state batteries and gradually transit to all-solid-state lithium batteries.
Prior to this, some Chinese new energy car companies have introduced solid-state battery technology, claiming that electric vehicles using solid-state batteries can achieve a range of 1,000 kilometers. However, just after NIO, GAC and other companies claimed to have achieved solid-state battery technology, many domestic scientific researchers voiced their doubts, thinking that the current technology is not mature enough to produce solid-state batteries on a large scale.
Xing Xu from GuoXuan High-Tech believes that many manufacturers are deploying solid-state batteries in the near future, but this is only applicable to some scenarios in the short term. If solid-state batteries are to be applied on a large scale, it needs to wait till at least 2025. The structure of the relevant industrial chain will not change much within 10 years.
