ETV

Company

ETV was established at 2008 to develop the next generation High Voltage, High Energy Lithium Ion Battery (LIB).

The company is operated by worldwide pioneers in the field of LIBs with thorough industrial and academic experience. R&D team of ETV Energy is a mix of industry and academy pioneers in the field of Lithium batteries. The management team holds decades of global experience in bringing disruptive technologies into discerning markets.

To encounter the enormous challenge, ETV Energy established academic and industrial collaborations. By leveraging the cooperation, across a wide range of disciplines, ETV embraces an outstanding scientific and industrial R&D platform. Holding thorough acquaintance with the LIB technology and oriented to reach technological breakthrough, ETV take part to develop and implement some novel elements not being used in the state-of-the-art LIBs. ETV takes active and leading role in the Israeli National program for oil alternative technologies.

Technology

ETV Energy is engaged to develop Novel High Voltage Lithium Ion Battery technology. The electrochemical system is based on High Voltage Nickel-Manganese-Oxide Spinel cathode (HV-NMS). The system provides inherent performance and cost benefits including:

  • High Cell Voltage + 30 ÷    50%
  • High Spec. Power + 50 ÷ 300%
  • High Spec. Energy + 30 ÷ 100%
  • Cost Effective + 30 ÷   50%

The inherent features of the high voltage spinel cathode provide high and flat voltage profile and outstanding kinetics, thereby enabling delivery of high energy and high power. 

The high cell voltage enables to reduce the number of serial cells to reach certain battery voltage, thereby providing added value to reduce cost and increase the specific energy and power of the battery (see example herein)  

Generic technological platform has been developed, being beneficial not only for the High Voltage LIB, but rather for the entire family of the LIBs

Go-to-Market

Wide and interdisciplinary knowhow and experience enabled the company to achieve marked progress with the High Voltage LIB making it viable for near term commercialization.

Near-term objective of the company is implementing its novel chemistry into high-end, custom-made products requiring extreme performance. The company has already gained a foothold in this market with revenues starting of 2012 and keeps delivery of technology Demo prototypes for high-end industry in Israel. Delivery of prototype samples worldwide, is projected for 2017.

Launching operation of low volume pilot for the custom made high-end markets is foreseen for the near future.  Penetrating this sector enables ETV to generate revenues, build credibility and to continue development of its core technologies to allow later access to the automotive market. The company is targeting delivery of engineering samples prototypes to the automotive market by 2018/19. 

Team & Infrastructure

ETV has assembled a seasoned management team with track-records for taking laboratory concepts to commercially success­ful products. Collectively, the company’s scientists provide the company with decades of experience as pioneers in the development of advanced lithium and other battery technologies commencing with the dawn of Li-ion battery technology.

ETV holds business and technology agreement with the Bar-Ilan University, Israel, closely coopering with the electrochemical group headed by Prof. Doron Aurbach. Prof. Aurbach is a known worldwide authority in the field of LIB. The collaboration provides mutual synergism while ensuring solid scientific and infrastructure backing to ETV.
