The Next Gear in Battery Development

The transition of electro-chemical power systems from the lead battery to the lithium-ion battery, has been an incredible enabler for Electric Vehicles (EVs). But the journey doesn’t stop here. The energy storage systems of tomorrow will need to be lighter, have a higher-energy density, and be far more sustainable if industry-wide electrification is to take place. 

Moreover, as well as delivering cutting edge specifications, the high-performance battery of the future also needs to be deployed to market at speed. In the US alone, vehicle battery demand grew 80% between 2021 and 2022 .

A gear shift in manufacturing capacity is needed.

Battery Engineering, Re-energized

These demands have major implications for every step of the battery value chain, from cell innovation to giga-scale battery factories. Delivering truly innovative battery technology – whether that means defining new processes, cultivating new expertise, or building new facilities – is a complex and multi-faceted challenge.

Dassault Systèmes is on hand to provide a full suite of multi-scale, multi-physics virtual twin and simulation solutions that enable battery organizations to navigate this complexity. From new materials development to large scale manufacture, we give battery makers the insight and capabilities they need to define and deliver effective change.

Making Connections: Exploring Battery Manufacturing Challenges in an EV-first World

Aligning battery production with the needs of the EV market will necessitate widespread change. However, just like modules on a circuit board, every node on the battery value chain is connected to every other node; if we change one, we impact all the others, from chemical processors and refiners all the way to automakers. Enabling change in such a complex and interconnected system demands visibility and flexibility, embedded everywhere.

Here, we explore three scenarios reflecting three core challenges facing the Transportation & Mobility industry today:
