We are happy to share that the coverage which has featured on the first page of Telangana Today newspaper, print. The coverage has also appeared in online edition as well.
Hyderabad: The Electric Vehicle policy of the State government has so far attracted Rs 5,600 crore worth of investment and generated 3,800 jobs 2013 both direct and indirect. Many large and small companies have chosen the State to set up their manufacturing unit, thanks to the government’s EV policy rolled out in 2020.

India is on the cusp of EV adoption. Battery failures can appear suddenly, and without warning, with the potential of severe injuries, product recalls, and loss of reputation. Hence the EV industry must invest in good battery design with advanced battery intelligence that can predict and prevent the user from unsafe batteries before they lead to any untoward incident. When it comes to Lithium-ion batteries, an ounce of prevention is far better than a pound of cure!

The safety of Lithium-Ion battery is paramount and historical failures in smartphones and laptops give us valuable insight into the criticality of this issue. It is necessary to develop software intelligence to predict battery degradation, alert users to unsafe batteries and thus avoid any untoward incidents. Achieving this intelligence and 100% battery safety is a business priority now.
Then Versus Now: The traditional lead-acid battery is an electro-chemical device that is mostly unintelligent energy storage equipment. The battery intelligence is predominantly built around the Inverters or UPS that interface with the lead-acid battery. With the advent of the Lithium-Ion battery, this narrative has completely changed. With its Smart Battery Management System (BMS), the Li-Ion battery relies quite heavily on battery data for battery intelligence, analysis, and safety.
Opinion piece by Venkat Rajaraman – Chief Executive Officer, Cygni Energy Pvt Ltd
Prof Jeff Dahn’s (Dalhousie University, Canada) seminal paper, which got published after 3 years of extensive research, is touted as the “Benchmark for New Battery Technologies”. Though this paper does not describe any brand new chemistry, it is a composite of the industry’s best practices. The secret sauce is the electrolyte, with novel additives and other changes that can make the battery last longer. The paper also focuses on single crystal cathode (powder of cathode material made into a single crystal so that it doesn’t react with the surrounding electrolyte) as well as the best of cathode, anode and electrolyte materials to set the bar for achieving a million-mile battery.
Mr.Venkat Rajaraman, Founder of Cygni Energy Private Limited , pens this strong and timely piece bringing to fore reasons why India should further accelerate its stance and plan for Lithium-ion battery (a prime component for EV) recycling and production.
He talks about the importance of Urban mining, cites examples of countries that are moving fast ahead in the recycling game, lists recommendations of what should be done, and opines on how India’s way forward from the current inflection point will tell if we are truly ready to chase this BHAG ( Big Hairy Audacious Goal).
