GODI India Private Limited, a Hyderabad-based lithium-ion cell R&D and manufacturer, has become the first Indian company to attain LFP BIS certification for its Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) Li-ion cells. The certification, conforming to IS 16046 Part-2:2018 / IEC 62133-2:2017 standards, was announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos in the presence of the Chief Minister of Telangana, Shri Revanth Reddy. This achievement showcases GODI’s commitment to innovation in advanced energy storage devices for electric vehicles (EV) and renewable energy storage system (ESS) applications.

The company had earlier secured BIS certification for its NMC811 cathode material-based Li-ion cells in mid-2022. The company plans to set up large-scale indigenous GIGA scale cell manufacturing for NMC and LFP for EV, ESS, and Defense applications. The recently certified LFP cells, tested to various standards, have earned BIS and AIS certifications, demonstrating technical prowess and collaboration with investor Graphite India Limited.

With backing from Blue Ashva Capital and Graphite India Ltd, GODI is known for technological advancements and sustainability in the Indian tech industry. The LFP cells have an energy density exceeding 150 Wh/kg, exceptional charge-discharge rates, and a service life surpassing 2000 cycles. The achievement marks progress toward reducing India’s dependence on imported LFP batteries.

Mahesh GODI, Founder and CEO of GODI India, expressed excitement and highlighted the company’s commitment to establishing extensive indigenous manufacturing facilities for GIGA scale production of NMC & LFP cells. GODI aims for self-reliance and sustainability in energy storage and leads in environmental responsibility with eco-friendly processes.

Looking ahead, GODI plans to enhance LFP cell energy density, develop next-gen manganese-doped LFP materials, and formulate in-house electrolytes. As a signatory to The Climate Pledge by Amazon, GODI actively pursues solvent-free and dry electrode coating processes to reduce costs and minimize the carbon footprint.
