HPQ Silicon Anode Battery Tech Wins 3rd Party Validation With €90,000 Grant By French Bank of Public Investments

Posted by Alavaro Coronel at 2:16 PM on Tuesday, January 9th, 2024

In the rapidly evolving landscape of electric vehicles and renewable energy, HPQ Silicon has emerged as a trailblazer, showcasing groundbreaking advancements in battery technology. A recent interview sheds light on an important milestone for the company, demonstrating its prowess in the realm of engineered SiOx anode battery material.

The Crucial Role of Anodes:

Electric vehicle enthusiasts understand the pivotal role anodes play in battery efficiency. While graphite anodes have long dominated the market, their energy density has plateaued. HPQ Silicon is spearheading a shift toward silicon anodes, which boast up to 10 times the energy density. Major players like Porsche, Mercedes, and GM are betting on silicon anode batteries, yet face challenges of significant degradation during charging and discharging cycles.

In a recent press release, HPQ Silicon’s France-based affiliate, Novacium, secured a substantial grant of 90,000 euros (over 130,000 Canadian dollars) for its work on engineered SiOx anode battery material. Bernard Tourillon, CEO of HPQ Silicon, highlighted the significance of this achievement, emphasizing that it validates the strength of their approach.


Advancing Battery Technology:


Strategic Government Recognition:

The grant from the Deep Tech Fonds Emergents, a concept created by the French government, signifies strategic recognition. This program finances innovative strategies crucial for the reindustrialization of Europe. HPQ Silicon’s vision and engineered SiOx philosophy have not only received financial support but also validation from industry experts.

Moving Beyond Initial Grant:

The grant serves as an entry point, not merely for the monetary value but for the validation of HPQ Silicon’s engineered SiOx vision. This recognition opens doors for additional stages of funding from the French Bank of Public Investment, potentially reaching up to 2 million euros. The upcoming results from ongoing battery tests will play a pivotal role in this progression.


The grant approval process involved a rigorous selection by sector experts, providing an independent validation of HPQ Silicon’s technology. This third-party affirmation is crucial in a landscape where skepticism and doubt can cloud the judgment of potential investors.

The grant not only acknowledges the technological advancement but also underscores the potential industrial impact in France and globally. HPQ Silicon’s engineered SiOx material is positioned to play a key role in the burgeoning gigafactory landscape in Europe, offering improved battery performance and technical advantages.

Global Recognition:

The press release and grant from the French Bank of Public Investment position HPQ Silicon on the global map. It becomes a powerful communication strategy, showcasing the company’s achievements, attracting potential collaborators, and fostering discussions with global players in the battery industry.


Looking Ahead For 2024:

Confidence in Future Prospects:

Despite market fluctuations and external challenges, Bernard Tourillon expresses confidence in HPQ Silicon’s trajectory. The company’s ability to operate lean and mean, focus on technological advancements, and navigate through industry dynamics sets the stage for a promising 2024.

Holistic Approach and Diversification:

HPQ Silicon’s success isn’t confined to a single vertical. With achievements in fumed silica, batteries, and ongoing work in hydrogen, the company adopts a holistic approach. This diversification minimizes risks and positions HPQ Silicon as a formidable player across multiple sectors.


HPQ Silicon’s achievements underscore its commitment to revolutionizing battery technology. The validation from the French Bank of Public Investment, coupled with strategic grants, marks a significant step forward. HPQ Silicon stands as a beacon of innovation in the pursuit of a cleaner and more energy-efficient tomorrow.
