Bi-polar silicon technology to drive 48V adoption

Some believe the answer to tackling emission regulations is lithium-ion full electric vehicles, but the lead battery industry believes the answer lies with 48V hybrid applications.

One such company is US start-up Gridtential, which is pushing its Silicon Joule technology to one day be the 48V industry standard by making lead batteries cheaper and boosting performance.

Tests prove lead-carbon 48V system can beat emission and performance targets

Mon, 10/10/2016 - 15:33 -- Xuan Zhong

Final testing has confirmed a 48V lead-carbon battery can help reduce fuel consumption by 10-12%– equivalent to sub-80g/km of CO2 emissions.

That puts the test vehicle well inside the current European Union agreed 95 g/km of COlimit, which will come into 100% affect by 2021.

Lead still the battery solution for EU emission regs

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 11:02 -- Gerry Woolf
Allan Cooper

Some so-called battery events don’t even give them a platform but this wasn’t the case this week when tireless lead-acid old stager Allan Cooper delivered a cracking account of how advanced lead-acid batteries will bring serious environmental and cost benefits to the car industry.

Speaking at IQPC Automotive’s Second International Conference on Automotive 48V Power Supply Systems, Cooper said the low additional cost of introducing 48V mild hybrid powertrains is proving a major attraction to carmakers, because it will help them comply with stringent CO2 regulations being introduced in 2020 with even tougher rules following in 2025.a

2nd 48V conference in Düsseldorf

German OEM Volkswagen will not switch to a single 48V power supply system in mild hybrids in the near future, according to Florian Kühnetz, development engineer at Volkswagen.

Volkswagen will focus on a dual voltage power supply comprising a 12V lead-acid battery and a 48V lithium-ion battery, said Kühnetz at the 2nd 48V automotive power supply conference in Düsseldorf, Germany.
