Charged EVs | ONE reveals 1,007 Wh/L anode-free cell that allows a dual-chemistry battery structure


Michigan-based vitality storage firm Our Subsequent Vitality (ONE) has unveiled a 240 Ah prismatic anode-free cell after a 12-month R&D effort. ONE says the brand new know-how will allow the commercialization of its Gemini dual-chemistry structure, which might be built-in right into a BMW iX prototype automobile later this yr.

ONE says its 1,007 Wh/L cell eliminates the necessity for graphite and anode manufacturing gear, and predicts that the financial savings might convey cell prices to as little as $50 per kWh at scale. “Our prismatic anode-free cell is produced with roughly half of present cell manufacturing gear for equal capability, permitting us to sharply scale back scale-up value,” stated Mujeeb Ijaz, founder and CEO of ONE.

ONE explains that anode-free cells usually have low cycle life in comparison with typical cells, and thus haven’t been thought of sensible for automotive purposes. The corporate says its Gemini dual-chemistry structure permits the usage of anode-free cells by lowering cycle and peak energy necessities by 90%.

ONE’s Gemini system pairs standardized LFP and anode-free chemistries into one battery pack—a proprietary DC-DC converter permits every chemistry to concentrate on totally different features: LFP for each day driving and anode-free to increase vary for lengthy distances.

“Scaling 100x from a 2 Ah pouch cell to a 240 Ah prismatic in lower than 12 months is a testomony to the simplicity of the design and skill to make use of typical Li-ion manufacturing gear,” stated Dr. Steven Kaye, ONE Chief Technical Officer. “Gemini will attain quantity manufacturing in 2026, accelerating EV adoption by delivering 600 miles of vary.”
