Based on Lithium-Polymer batteries to change the future energy
paradigm, SK Innovation is developing lithium batteries for adoption in
green cars of the future and storage of new regenerative energy. From a lithium-ion separator and electrodes, basic components necessary to
produce a battery, to cell and packing, SK Innovation successfully
completed the whole value chain with its own technology and provide
customer-tailored battery system.
SK Innovation will be a global battery supplier that has both technical
strength and mass production system. Furthermore, we are continuously building world-best level of R&D infra system to produce high
performance and stable batteries with competitive cost, and to develop next generation of batteries.

- Smart Grid
- Renewable Energy
Major R&D Projects and Business Status
SK Innovation has cell technology which has a strong point in terms of energy density and power density to lengthen the driving distance and usage convenience. Now, we are establishing good partnerships with global automobile companies and producing customer-
tailored batteries for EVs. We are chosen to be a battery provider of Hybrid trucks produced by Mitsubishi Fuso (Daimler Group,
Germany), Super EVs of Mercedes-Benz and High-speed battery car of Hyundai motors group. Therefore, we embarked our batteries on Blue-on which is the first electric vehicle in Korea made by Hyundai motors. Also, our batteries are used to produce EVs made by KIA
motors and we are going to supply more batteries to next generation EVs.
Moreover, from 2011 to 2013, we practiced the biggest size of energy storage system in Jeju smart grid to lead a market of renewable
energy storage market including not only energy storage for a household, but also new and renewable energy storage system.
