ALABC-Exide launch energy storage project

The Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) and Exide Spain are launching a two-year study into the use of carbon nano materials in the positive active mass.

The objective of the new project “is to investigate potential significant benefits, such as improved energy efficiency and cycle life for lead batteries in energy storage applications, through the use of nano-carbon on the positive plate”, the ALABC said.

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.

CPT pumps £1 million into technology in advance lead-carbon technology

A £1 million investment by powertrain producer Controlled Power Technologies (CPT) could signal a breakthrough for lead-carbon batteries in hybrid vehicles as the company pushes for 48V batteries in mild hybrid vehicles.

The UK-based firm says that while its switched-reluctance technology is battery agnostic, tests have shown that lead-carbon would be the ideal chemistry for the job.
