In August, the space agency had said it has received response from 141 companies to its RFQ.

ISRO’s VSSC has successfully developed and qualified lithium-ion cells of capacities ranging from ‘1.5 Ah to 100 Ah’ for use in satellites and launch vehicles.

According to the space agency, lithium-ion (Li-ion) cell technology is one of the “most promising” electrochemical energy storage technologies owing to its high voltage, high energy density, long life cycle and high storage characteristics.

It finds wide applications in electronic gadgets, telecommunication and industrial applications as well as in aerospace.

Recent progress in Li-ion battery technology has made it the favourite power source for electric and hybrid electric vehicles.

According to ISRO, with the successful deployment of indigenous lithium-ion batteries in various missions, VSSC is planning to transfer this technology to the industries to establish production facilities for producing lithium-ion cells to cover the entire spectrum of the country’s power storage needs.

Floating the RFQ, ISRO had earlier said, “This initiative is expected to enable Zero Emission Policy of India and accelerate the development of indigenous electric vehicle industry.”
