We are honored to have our Battery Scientist Amund Raniseth being awarded support by Forskningsrådet (the Research Council of Norway) to pursue an industry-PhD in collaboration with the Electrochemistry group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Through this industry-academia partnership, he will continue Evyon’s investigation into non-destructive evaluation and modeling of degradation mechanisms in Lithium-ion battery modules.
This research is essential to meet the critical requirements of battery characterziation to enable a safe application of 2nd life batteries. On this journey, we target to develop tools for fast characterization both in terms of battery health and safety, in addition to the battery's performance metrics.
The collaboration with the prestigious Electrochemistry group at NTNU, which has a long history of electrochemical measurements and modeling, will allow Amund and Evyon to push the knowledge frontiers on battery characterization and degradation. In addition, the NTNU environment will provide Amund with a broad network of highly experienced researchers, and access to state-of-the-art research facilities.
We congratulate Amund on the position and look forward to utilizing the output to achieve our ambition of maximizing the value of every battery.
