GM Partners With OneD To Increase Energy Density & Reduce Cost Of EV Batteries

  • General Motors Co (NYSE: GM) is partnering with EV battery technology firm, OneD Battery Sciences for a joint research development agreement.

  • GM Ventures also participated in OneD's Series C funding round, which recently closed at $25 million.

  • The parties will look to use OneD's silicon nanotechnology in GM's Ultium battery cells to drive increases in energy density for a longer range and reduced cost.

  • The focus will be on OneD's SINANODE platform, which adds more silicon onto the anode battery cells by fusing silicon nanowires into EV-grade graphite.

  • Silicon can store 10 times more energy than graphite.
