Prize has been designed and is seeking funding
Grand Challenge

Technologies with the potential to change the world from EVs, driverless cars, and drones to wearable health devices and personal robots all depend on lighter, smaller, longer lasting batteries. This XPRIZE is designed to incentivize a transformational improvement in battery energy density while achieving the high cycle life necessary for the most innovative applications. It’s time to transform how we power everything!

Draft Guidelines

Develop a battery cell that achieves revolutionary improvement in energy density (at least 500 Wh/kg) and significant cycle life (250 cycles). The competition will keep barriers to entry low in order to incentivize new players and ideas, and teams will be judged based on performance in robust laboratory tests.
