Solid-state battery from Swiss HPB AG with excellent environmental balance solves fundamental problem for series production

Battery cell passes basic functionality tests; first production line of 100 MWh as a modular unit on the way to the Gigafactory in planning - production start from 2023 onwards; positioning as technology leader in the battery industry; search for cooperation partners for production and applications.

Teufen (CH) Ein wichtiger Meilenstein ist erreicht: Das Start-up High Performance Battery (HPB) hat den weltweit ersten Feststoff-Akku entwickelt, dessen Herzstück – im Gegensatz zu allen anderen Feststoff-Akku-Vorhaben - das Ergebnis einer chemischen Reaktion innerhalb des Akkus ist. Werden üblicherweise Festionenleiter als Fertigteile in die Batterie eingebracht, entsteht der HPB Festionenleiter ähnlich einem "Zwei-Komponenten-Kleber" erst in der Batteriezelle. Dadurch löst diese Technologie elegant wesentliche Hürden für eine Serienproduktion von Feststoff-Akkus als mögliche Nachfolgetechnologie der Lithium-Ionen-Akkus auf.

patent applications

We have registered our basic patent in all major economic regions.


years of
basic research

Since the beginning of his scientific career, Günther Hambitzer has pursued his vision of solving battery ageing at its chemical root causes. The foundation was already laid in his 1989 dissertation, in which he was able to trace battery ageing in organic systems back to side reactions. With his habilitation in 1995, he formulated the foundations for a novel high-energy battery system. Since then, he has been pushing its further development to market maturity, both on a scientific and entrepreneurial level.


environmental balance

No critical raw materials are needed for the production. This also contributes to the overall improvement of the environmental balance by more than half compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries.



A precursor technology (still liquid-based) has already successfully completed more than 50,000 charging cycles and has been in use for grid stabilisation in the USA since 2017.
