LG Energy Solution will supply Renault's Ampere with LFP batteries for five years

3 July 2024, 08:36:29

LG Energy Solution will supply Renault's Ampere with LFP batteries for five yearsLG Energy Solution (LGES) announced that it will supply LFP pouch-type EV batteries to Ampere, the EV pure player born from Renault Group, its long-time customer. The two companies signed the supply agreement at Renault's Paris headquarters in France. Under the five-year contract, LG Energy Solution will provide LFP batteries to Ampere from late 2025 through 2030, with a total capacity of approximately 39 GWh, enough amount to produce around 590,000 battery electric vehicles. The batteries will be manufactured in LG Energy Solution’s Poland facility and will power next-generation EV models from Ampere.

LFP batteries use iron and phosphate, which are less expensive than the materials used in NCM batteries, and have a stable chemical structure, ensuring competitiveness in terms of cost and safety. The demand for affordable entry-level EVs is growing, raising the demand for LFP batteries as well.

LG Energy Solution is delivering further price competitiveness by implementing CTP (Cell To Pack) solutions in the manufacturing process. CTP technology refers to a technology that removes the module stage and makes the cell into a pack structure right away. Compared to the general battery structure, the module-free advantage enables cost and weight reduction, while increasing space utilization.

Because of these advantages, CTP is considered a cutting-edge technology in the EV battery market, and LG Energy Solution is the first in the world to apply the technology to pouch-type batteries.

LG Energy Solution’s CTP solution-applied pouch-type batteries have about five per cent higher energy density per weight compared to the prismatic CTP technology batteries, offering higher energy efficiency for EVs.

LG Energy Solution will also enhance the safety of the batteries by increasing the toughness of the battery pack and applying proven heat transfer prevention technology.
