isro will allow companies to obtain lithium-ion battery tech | india news - times of india
Allows manufacturers interested in producing native lithium
Including ion batteries in the private sector for access to technology for mass production.
Isro will now provide a framework for this process.
The Vikram Sarabhai Space Center under Isro has developed native technology to make such a high
Power batteries for cars and electronics
The vehicle and its feasibility test on the vehicle were successful.

But these batteries are smaller in weight and smaller in size compared to conventional batteries.
Isro and BHEL may soon finalize a memorandum of understanding for the manufacture of such batteries, sources said.
The cabinet secretary asked Isro to establish a framework that would enable interested private participants to access technology for mass production.
It is not enough to have just one organization that produces them.
An official attending the meeting said that the cost will only decline if we have a lot of production to meet the demand.
The meeting was chaired by carari.
Government documents show the cost of lithium
Due to the small purchase volume, the price of ion batteries is high.
Mass sourcing and mass production can reduce costs by 80%, which is the key to driving demand.
