Sunrise New Energy Announced the project of "Sodium-ion battery hard carbon anode material research and development" has passed the review of Guizhou Provincial Science and Technology Support Plan

ZIBO, China, Aug. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunrise New Energy Co., Ltd. (“Sunrise New Energy”, the “Company”, “we” or “our”) (NASDAQ: EPOW), today announced that the project of "Sodium-ion battery hard carbon anode material research and development" (the “Project”) proposed by Sunrise (Guizhou) New Energy Materials Co., Ltd. has passed the review of the Science and Technology Support Plan of Guizhou Provincial Department of Science and Technology. The Guizhou Provincial Science and Technology Support Plan is aimed at conducting research on breakthrough technologies of key industries and social welfare, using government investment and policy incentives to drive industrial capital investment, to enhance the competitiveness and sustainable development of industries.

Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) are environmentally friendly and low-cost alternatives to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Compared with lithium, sodium is richer and widely distributed in the earth's crust. Therefore, the average cost of SIBs after large-scale production will be 25%-35% cheaper than LIBs. However, the lack of suitable anode materials has hindered the rapid development of Sodium-ion battery. Therefore the development of high-performance anode materials for Sodium-ion battery is crucial. “We are thrilled to announce this Project” said Sunrise New Energy’s Chairman, Mr. Haiping Hu. “The breakthrough technology of the Project can effectively reduce the company's production costs, enhance our competitiveness, and cultivate a group of high-tech talents in the field of materials.”
