Hydro-Québec gives solid-state license to China


Canadian energy provider Hydro-Québec has signed a license agreement with Chinese company Dongshi Kingpower Science and Technology, allowing the latter to use patents for solid-state li-ion batteries.

Thus, Kingpower can start producing batteries for the Chinese market based on technology developed by Hydro-Québec. According to the Canadian company, the system works particularly well in EVs as solid-state batteries provide more safety and a higher energy density than usual li-ion batteries. Together, Hydro-Québec and Kingpower will soon install a pilot assembly line.
