Tech leaders collaborate on battery cell development

Williams Advanced Engineering and Molicel have agreed to work together to develop the next generation of high performance, superior quality, lithium-ion power battery cells.

The collaboration will bring together power-optimised cell technology from Molicel with WAE’s advanced system design and control systems know-how to deliver a shared vision of high performance battery systems, optimised for power, while also delivering energy density, across a number of industries.

Paul McNamara, technical director, WAE, said: “We are committed to the engineering challenge of cell technology development and in conjunction with Molicel, believe we can address a number of opportunities across a wide range of applications and we look forward to working with the team at Molicel.

Casey Shiue, president of Molicel, said: “Molicel is on a mission to produce outstanding cells to drive the electric evolution. We will bring our expertise and experiences on consistent high power, low impedance and fast charge to our collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE). Our technology is well suited to the arenas that WAE operates and we are happy to be part of this exciting collaboration.”
