The UK Automotive Battery Supply Chain
The Companies Involved:
AGM Batteries: AGM Batteries are a cell manufacturing business with capacity for >50MWh of production. AGM used their Thurso-based pilot-line capability to produce the production representative Lithium ion cells with embedded electronics used in this project.
Dukosi Limited: Dukosi have a 12-year history of design services delivering complex and innovative R&D projects in mixed signal electronics, software and IC design. Based in Edinburgh, they are inventors of the disruptive ASIC cell-level battery management technology which was used within this project.
WMG at the University of Warwick: WMG researchers and engineers have over ten years of experience in Lithium ion battery research and manufacturing. WMG has a pilot multi-format cell manufacturing scale-up facility and expertise in battery cell development, characterisation and testing. This facility complemented AGM’s larger manufacturing facility and was used to evaluate cell chemistries and enhancements during the project, providing an invaluable and cost-effective centre to assist with process optimisation & cell characterisation.
