We Lead with Science and Data. Now We’re Scaling.

Blue Current is a leader in the next wave of battery innovation. The company manufactures 100% dry, safe and high performance silicon elastic composite solid-state batteries to power the new energy economy including electric vehicles and non-automotive applications. Blue Current leads with science, data, and thoughtful IP across the full battery stack. We are hiring talented, motivated, and passionate minds in all areas of battery design and manufacturing. Come build with us!

Solving the primary challenges of batteries:


  • Liquid electrolytes and lithium metal are highly flammable
  • Liquids cycle poorly with silicon


  • Fixtures add mass, volume and cost
  • Reduces system level energy density


  • Energy required to heat cells
  • Reduces effective energy density


  • Critical materials are in short supply
  • Specialized equipment required

Blue Current is solving these challenges

“Through extensive diligence we see that
Blue Current has an advantaged IP position that can
be disruptive in the solid-state battery space.”
