WIN member receives $3 million for battery research

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Professor Zongwei Chen, Director of Collaborative Graduate Program in Nanotechnology and Canada Research Chair in Advanced Materials for Clean Energy, will be co-developing a new kind of lithium-ion battery that may be on the market in three to four years. It will be safer and cheaper than contemporary Li+ batteries and will allow an electric car to travel up to 500 km on a single charge.

Newtech Power Inc. has granted Dr. Chen $3 million in funding to further his work.

“This innovative battery represents a major leap forward and we are thrilled to support the research and bring this exciting Canadian invention to the world market,” said Allen Sun, president of Newtech Power.
