CSIR-CECRI (Central Electrochemical Research Institute) and GODI India have entered into a public-private partnership (PPP) to operate and maintain an advanced lithium-ion (li-ion) cell manufacturing facility in Taramani, Chennai.

This will be the country’s first-ever public-private partnership for the manufacturing of large-scale advanced li-ion cells.

The facility was inaugurated by Dr Shekhar C Mande, Former Secretary DSIR and Former Director General, CSIR in the presence of Dr Kalaiselvi, Director, CECRI.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Shekhar C Mande, Former Secretary DSIR and Former Director General, CSIR, said, “CSIR is a treasure of knowledge covering all facets of science. CSIR is contributing a lot in the Space, Defence, Nuclear and other societal applications. Partnering with GODI India marks a new chapter in the development of advanced Lithium-ion cells with regard to next generation of energy storage applications. We have taken a step further to provide fruitful contribution to the ultimate benefit of the country under ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.”

“It is a glorious occasion for India in the area of energy storage for manufacturing Lithium-ion cells initiated by CECRI in partnership with GODI India Private Limited in presence of Dr Shekhar Mande, Former Secretary DSIR and Former Director General- CSIR in a function held at CSIR-CECRI’s Chennai Centre at Taramani,” said Dr N Kalaiselvi, Director, CECRI.

Commenting on this partnership, Mahesh Godi, Founder and CEO of GODI India, said, “This partnership is just a beginning of development of next generation cells for mobility, ESS applications and new R&D projects. GODI India will operate and maintain the facility to manufacture advance Lithium-ion cells and cater to various applications ranging from e-mobility to large scale energy storage systems. This partnership signifies our credibility and testimony of technology strength in Lithium-ion cells manufacturing.”

He further added that “currently, all the Lithium-ion cells are being imported mostly from China and South Korea. GODI India is the first Indian company to manufacture Made-in-India & Made-for-India Lithium-ion cells, which is certified by BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards), tested and qualified by TUV, the third-party testing agency. With this, GODI India can manufacture and sell the cells at par to the standard cells available in the world market.”
