Road to Manufacturing
In parallel to our R&D road map, we are already preparing for scale-up. Our plan is to scale-up to MWh scale, for example at the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre with which we have a Framework Agreement before eventually licensing our technology for Giga scale production.
We have commissioned a BOM cost forecast from consultants Exawatt which concluded that price of SSB BOM could be essentially similar to that of LIB when manufactured at GIGA scale.
Following funding from APC's Automotive Transformation Fund, we worked with Comau (part of Stellantis) to cost the equipment and processes for a three stage scale-up plan from kWh, through MWh and onto GWh. The study validated the use of existing technologies and machines in the scale-up of Goliath batteries for electric vehicles.
