Batteries are one of the key components for Electric cars, affecting the number of km possible to run, the overall cost and the acceptance of EV mainly for safety reasons.To guarantee safety and long-term performance, a reliable thermal model predicting ageing of cells main importance. To increase the battery energy density metallic lithium should be substituting graphite The proposal will develop innovative metallic lithium protection based on hybrid polymer/ceramic membranes to block dendrites growth and use the model produced in THERMODEL project to validate results
