Silicon Anode Consortium

NREL has joined other national laboratories in a research effort as part of the Silicon Anode Consortium, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office.

The other national laboratories in the consortium include:

  • Argonne National Laboratory
  • Sandia National Laboratories
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

The consortium focuses on understanding and eliminating barriers to implementing silicon-based anodes in Li-ion cells. This work employs advanced characterization techniques, coupled with state-of-the-art research facilities across the national labs, and covers a broad range of research—from foundational science related to the initial chemical interactions of organic electrolytes with silicon interfaces to the development of full electrode/full cell chemistry.
