Research summary

This research is focused around developing new anode and cathode materials for lithium ion batteries, which could enable higher energy density and a longer lifecycle, used for propulsion and enabling regenerative braking of the train, signaling systems and auxiliary applications such as the train’s air conditioning and back-up power needs.

Expected completion date

August 2021

Key achievements
