Enevate's HD-Energy Technology offers short charge times, an increased driving range, superior safety features, and lower costs
SANTA CLARA, California, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Enevate Corporation (Enevate) with the 2018 Global Technology Innovation Award for its HD-Energy® Technology for electric vehicles (EVs). Enevate's HD-Energy Technology breaks down barriers to mass EV adoption by enabling next-gen EV batteries (EVBs) with an increased driving range, short charge times, cold-tolerant fast charging/operation, extra safety, and lower costs.
"Enevate is an impressive company now completely focused on EVs with their pure silicon-dominant Li-ion battery technology to improve performance of EV batteries and lower the cost of EVs," said Vishal Sapru, Research Manager at Frost & Sullivan. "Enevate has taken the new EV-chemistry batteries quite far towards commercialization and engagements with top EV battery and EV automotive companies worldwide."
"It is an honor to accept this award from a recognized global organization like Frost & Sullivan," says Robert A. Rango, Enevate's CEO. "The entire Enevate team is excited to be recognized by Frost and Sullivan. Our customers see the promise of the technology and the impact it can have on the important and emerging electric vehicle market."
Enevate recently introduced its HD-Energy Technology for EVs using its pure silicon-dominant anodes composed of 100% active material, which is free from inactive binder additives and better than graphite. Enevate's licensees can quickly ramp up production from reference Li-ion EV cell designs optimized with Enevate's anodes and technology.
Many consumers hesitate in purchasing an EV because of anxiety related to drive distance, time to charge, and overall upfront costs. However, Enevate's consumer-friendly HD-Energy Technology for EVs presents a seismic shift in EVB technology. Specifically, Enevate's technology allows EVs to add more than 240 miles of range with only a five-minute charge, which is essentially the same range conventional cars achieve with one tank of gasoline. These advantages will allow consumers to use EVs the same way they use gasoline cars but with better performance.
"Enevate's revolutionary technology presents a watershed moment in the evolution of EVs by making them as usable and accessible as conventional gasoline cars, thereby alleviating the concerns of hesitant buyers," said Sapru.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that develops a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
