IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enevate Corporation, a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology company, has been named a Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree in three categories—Vehicle Intelligence & Self-Driving Technology, Eco-Design and Sustainable Technologies, and Tech for a Better World—for its groundbreaking silicon-dominant Li-ion battery technology. This technology allows Electric Vehicles (EVs) to extreme fast charge in 5 minutes with uncompromised range and safety.
Enevate’s HD-Energy® Technology for EVs allows batteries to be charged in 5 minutes to 75% capacity. They can also safely charge and discharge down to -40°C and capture more energy during regenerative braking, extending their range in cold climates. With this technology, batteries are inherently resistant to lithium-plating during fast charge and in low temperatures, which is a key safety benefit.
“We are thrilled to be named a CES Innovation Award Honoree, and that our breakthrough HD-Energy Technology for EVs is being recognized in three categories,” said Jarvis Tou, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Products at Enevate. “This new extreme fast charge technology breaks down the barriers to EV adoption for a cleaner and better world. With our silicon Li-ion battery technology, EVs can be charged in 5 minutes to ease drivers’ range anxiety, while providing short charge times and low cost.”
Enevate’s HD-Energy Technology for EVs is available for licensing. Cells made using Enevate’s HD-Energy Technology for Electric Vehicles (EVs) will be displayed at CES 2018 in the Innovation Awards Showcase, which runs January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES 2018 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation.
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the owner and producer of CES 2018, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Products and technologies entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Enevate Corporation, with global headquarters in California USA, develops and licenses advanced silicon-dominant Li-ion battery technology that revolutionizes the electric vehicle (EV) market by breaking down barriers to EV adoption. Enevate's pioneering work on silicon-dominant anodes and cells has resulted in its breakthrough HD-Energy® Technology featuring extreme fast charging with uncompromised high energy density, excellent low-temperature operation for cold climates, and safety advantages over conventional graphite Li-ion batteries.
