Raasi Group to make lithium-ion batteries in India

29/06/2018 | Author: Autoguide | 0 Comments Back To Home   < Previous News   |   Next news >

Signs MoU with CECRI for technology transfer

Raasi Solar Power Pvt Ltd will become the first company to manufacture lithium-ion batteries with indigenous technology in the country. The company recently signed an official agreement with the Government-run Central Electro Chemical Research Institute (CECRI) on transfer of technology for lithium-ion batteries, according to an official statement.
 
According to the Science and Technology Ministry statement, The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is the first of its kind for the country. The indigenous technology of lithium-ion cells has been developed by a group of scientists at the Council for Scientific Industrial Research (CSIR)'s CECRI in Tamil Nadu's Karaikudi in partnership with CSIR-National Physical Laboratory, CSIR-Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute, Kolkata and CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad.
 
“CSIR-CECRI has set up a demo facility in Chennai to manufacture prototype lithium-ion cells. It has secured global IPRs with potential to enable cost reduction, coupled with appropriate supply chain and manufacturing technology for mass production," the statement added.
 
According to the Ministry, Indian manufacturers source lithium-ion batteries from China, Japan and South Korea among some other countries. Mr Harsh Vardhan, Minister of Science and Technology, informed, “India is one of the largest importers, and in 2017 it imported nearly $150 million worth lithium-ion batteries. Today's development is a validation of the capabilities of CSIR and its laboratories to meet technology in critical areas to support our industry, besides other sectors.”
 
“This will give tremendous boost to two flagship programmes - generating 175 giga watts (GW) by 2022, of which 100 GW will be solar and the second, the National Electric Mobility Mission, to switch completely to electric vehicles by 2030,” Mr Vardhan added.
 
Under the MoU, the Raasi Group will set up a manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu's Krishnagiri district, which is located close to Bengaluru. According to Mr C. Narsimhan, Chairman, Raasi Group, “We want to bring down the cost of cell manufacturing below Rs 15,000 per KW to replace lead acid battery. We also have plans to make lithium-ion battery for solar roof top with life span of 25 years to make it affordable enough to drive the photo voltaic segment.”
 
Lithium-ion batteries have applications in energy storage systems and can power any electrical application without the need of physical wires.
