ARC Linkage grant awarded for battery electrode work with Toyota

Researchers at Deakin University have been awarded an Australian Research Council grant to develop new solid-state battery technology with Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan).

The partnership received $206,100 to create new knowledge in battery materials and design, and is led by Associate Professor Patrick Howlett and Professor Maria Forsyth, both of Deakin’s Institute of Frontier Materials.

According to the list of approved proposals, the research aims to produce results in the “area of battery electrode materials through an innovative combination of a soft plastic crystal electrolyte with a highly conductive glass ceramic electrolyte” and “should provide significant benefits, such as the development of a new high capacity battery to promote the uptake of electric vehicles and lower Australia’s carbon footprint.
