Silicon Anode Consortium

As part of the Silicon Anode Consortium, NREL has joined other national laboratories to eliminate barriers for implementing silicon-based anodes in Li-ion cells.

Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office, the consortium also includes:

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


The consortium 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.


The following reports provide more information about the research conducted by the Silicon Anode Consortium.
