April 26, 2023 // “The most important factor in electrification is battery competitiveness,” said CEO Toshihiro Mibe.
October 31, 2022 // “SES’s superior Li-Metal technology enables it to take the lead in the global transition to electrification, already setting a high barrier that protects its technology, making it difficult for competitors to catch up.”
June 3, 2022 // “Today’s battery and car industries are poised on the brink of seismic changes. Not every company will be around to take part in the next era, and it will take innovative thinking on both sides to succeed.”
April 7, 2022 // “Huge battery innovations happen about every 30 years, according to Hu, and the good news is we’re about due for the next evolution. He believes that will be Li-Metal batteries, which are a cousin of lithium-ion batteries and will provide ‘higher intensity, higher range, and lower cost.’ AI and other technologies, Hu says, will also help improve the batteries, as well as performance and safety.”
October 17, 2021 // “SES may thus be first among the Li-Metal startups to commence the multi-year formal validation, giving it a potential edge over solid-state rivals like VW-backed QuantumScape.”
