It is the first time an ultra-fast charging technology provider has won a BNEF Pioneers award, demonstrating its increasing importance for the global automotive industry as it moves towards pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs). Israel-based StoreDot has developed a new generation of lithium-ion battery technology that is capable of recharging an electric vehicle in five minutes – the same time it takes to refuel a combustion engine vehicle – eliminating range and charging anxiety associated with electric vehicle adoption.
StoreDot is one of ten 2020 BNEF Pioneers chosen from more than 100 applicants by an independent panel of judges. Candidates were evaluated against three criteria: the potential to scale the opportunity, the innovation level of the technology or business model and the novelty it brings to the market, and momentum as demonstrated by strong commercial development.

Dr Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, said: “We are incredibly proud to win this prestigious award, recognizing the vital role of StoreDot’s FlashBattery ultra-fast charging technology in increasing mainstream adoption of electric vehicles. With an estimated 1.5 billion combustion engine vehicles on the roads today, electric vehicles have a critical role to play in meeting global goals on climate change. However, the reality is that current charging times are still some way off the required speed to enable mass adoption. As we move closer towards the commercialization of our 5-minute charge battery, we truly believe this could be a watershed moment for the industry.”

StoreDot has the backing of several strategic partners – BP, Daimler, TDK and EVE – as it prepares to take the next step towards transforming its innovative technology into a fully commercial product. In 2019, it achieved a world first when it successfully demonstrated the first live full 5-minute charge of a two-wheeled electric vehicle. Its next major milestone is to demonstrate the full charge of a four-wheeled electric vehicle platform, which it is on track to achieve by the end of 2021.

Dr Myersdorf comments: “Behind the electric vehicle itself, there is an entire ecosystem that must be prepared in order to turn mass adoption of electric vehicles into a reality. We have an R&D team of more than 100 scientists dedicated to developing our ultra-fast charging technology, but equally important is our ability to prove that it works in real-world applications. Therefore, we are working closely with our partners to ensure that our technology is fully synchronized with designs of upcoming electric vehicle models and compatible with charging station developments of the future.”
