Northvolt sodium-ion battery

Northvolt creates sodium-ion battery validated at 160 watt-hours per kilogram

Northvolt introduces a validated cell surpassing traditional chemistries in safety, cost, and sustainability. This result, based on Prussian White-based cathode, eliminates lithium, nickel, cobalt, and graphite. The cell has been validated for a best-in-class energy density of over 160 watt-hours per kilogram at the company’s research campus in Sweden.

This sodium-ion technology is cost-effective and safe at high temperatures, targeting energy storage in emerging markets. Notably, it can be produced with locally sourced materials, creating a unique regional battery manufacturing path.

Northvolt’s sodium-ion cell is initially for energy storage, with future generations enabling cost-efficient electric mobility. This complements their lithium-ion battery cells for automotive clients and lithium-metal battery tech for aviation and high-performance vehicles, positioning Northvolt as a key player in the drive towards global electrification.
