South African Pb start-up awarded bipolar development grant

Elektron Energy, the South African lead-acid battery start-up, has been awarded around €250,000 (US$282,000) from the EU and national funding authority (DST)-backed Eureka Eurostars initiative to develop its next generation bipolar batteries.

The manufacturer plans to begin initial pilot production of its bipolar batteries— using intellectual property from UK-based Mega Amps and nano-structured leady oxide from Aurelius Environmental— in its facility in Strand, Western Cape. The project is due to begin commercialisation by mid-2022.
