Altris and Clarios Expand Strategic Partnership

The collaboration between Altris and Clarios on low-voltage sodium battery technology marks a significant milestone in the automotive industry. Altris, a pioneering firm based in Sweden, recently entered into an exclusive Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with Clarios, known for its subsidiary VARTA Automotive. This partnership focuses on developing sodium-ion cell technology tailored for low-voltage applications, a crucial component for modern vehicles.

Strategic Partnership for Innovative Battery Solutions

Altris and Clarios aim to address the increasing complexity of vehicles and the subsequent demand for reliable low-voltage energy sources. Through this collaboration, Altris will leverage its expertise in sodium ion cell technology. In contrast, Clarios will focus on creating advanced Battery Management Systems (BMS), software, and system integration. This synergy promises to enhance the functionality of essential systems and software-based features in vehicles, including steer-by-wire and autonomous technologies.

The demand for sustainable and efficient energy storage systems is rising as the automotive industry evolves. Federico Morales Zimmermann, Clarios vice president and General Manager, emphasizes the company’s commitment to innovative battery solutions. Clarios’s chemistry-agnostic approach to battery production ensures versatility in manufacturing advanced battery types, including absorbent glass mat, Lithium-ion, and sodium-ion.

Sodium-Ion Batteries: A Sustainable Choice

Björn Mårlid, CEO of Altris, highlights the unique advantages of sodium-ion batteries. These include their low-temperature performance, ability to deliver high currents, and competitive energy density. Such features make sodium-ion batteries an ideal choice for mobility solutions, aligning with the growing focus on sustainability and efficiency in the automotive sector.

With collaborations like the one between Altris and Clarios, the future of low-voltage battery technology looks promising. Their joint efforts will likely accelerate the adoption of sodium-ion batteries in vehicles, contributing to more eco-friendly and efficient automotive solutions.
