Gogoro, a developer of battery swapping systems, has announced the first prototype solid-state lithium-ceramic battery for two-wheeled electric battery swapping.
Co-developed by Gogoro and Taiwan-based solid-state battery company ProLogium Technology, Gogoro’s new prototype solid-state battery integrates with existing vehicles and Gogoro’s sharing network.
Next-generation lithium-ceramic batteries are expected to replace traditional lithium-ion batteries and become the main power source for electric vehicles and consumer electronics. Solid-state batteries provide higher energy density and longer range for electric vehicles.
Gogoro estimates that its solid-state batteries will increase the capacity of current 21700 lithium batteries by 140% or more, from 1.7 kWh to 2.5 kWh.
At the heart of the Gogoro ecosystem is the Gogoro Network, an open and interoperable battery sharing platform.
The Gogoro network is a new generation of interchangeable battery provisioning that is intelligent, scalable and continuously optimized to be dynamic and versatile for people, communities and businesses.
With over 450,000 users and over 10,000 battery swapping GoStations in over 2,300 locations, the Gogoro network hosts 340,000 daily battery swaps with over 260 million total battery swaps to date.
Gogoro Battery Swapping has become the de facto battery swapping standard for two-wheelers in Taiwan, powering 95% of all electric two-wheelers.
The expansions of ProLogium and Blue Solutions in France will bring production capacity to the gigawatt-hour for the first time, according to the Lithium Metal and Solid-State Battery Benchmark report.
Solid-state battery production capacity will reach more than 250 GWh by 2030, according to Benchmark.
