Company says electric vehicle batteries can be made smaller, lighter, and more durable

Integrals Power innovates battery technology

Integrals Power, a UK-based battery technology company, is revolutionizing the electric vehicle (EV) industry with its development of advanced cathode active materials. The company’s new Enhanced Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) and Lithium Iron Manganese Phosphate (LFMP) chemistries promise to make EV batteries smaller, lighter, and more durable.

These cutting-edge materials offer up to 30% more energy storage capacity, faster discharge rates, lower internal resistance, and greater retained capacity over time. This breakthrough is set to extend the range and reduce the charging times of electric vehicles, all while cutting costs.

The next-generation LFMP chemistry will surpass the energy density of current Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) cathodes at a lower cost. Additionally, with about 90% of the world's cathode materials currently sourced from China, Integrals Power’s use of raw materials from Europe and the US enhances supply chain security and transparency, mitigating geopolitical risks.

The company's advancements are backed by UK government funding, collaborations with leading research institutions and universities, and evaluations with a global vehicle manufacturer. A pilot plant for manufacturing prototype materials in volume is under construction in the UK, marking a significant step towards mass production.

Integrals Power’s innovations are poised to transform the electric vehicle market, offering longer-range, faster-charging, and cost-effective solutions.
