Saft develops solid state batteries with "IDOLES" R&D program in Bordeaux, France

For decades, batteries have been constantly improved to maximize both their performance and their lifespan. Faced with new challenges, the massive needs for the electrification of electric vehicles as well as the storage of renewable energies such as solar and wind power, Saft has launched a Research and Development program, called IDOLES, to develop a breakthrough technology.

In France, scientists, engineers and technicians at our Bordeaux site are currently working on the next generation of high-energy lithium-ion cells with a liquid electrolyte and a true solid-state lithium-ion battery system. Discover the main advantages of this innovation program and why these batteries are essential to achieve TotalEnergies' Net Zero by 2050 ambition!
