Lead-carbon battery maker Axion Power International (Axion) has added Richard H Bogan to its board of directors.
63-year-old Bogan will replace Howard Schmidt who resigned from his position as director to concentrate on other non-competitive projects.
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
US battery firm Axion Power International (Axion) has named Charles R. Trego as the company’s financial officer.
Trego, who is also a member of the company's board of directors, will report directly to chairman and chief executive officer David DiGiacinto.
US energy storage company Axion Power International (Axion) is to deliver lead-carbon batteries and its energy storage system (ESS) to a solar farm in Pennsylvania, US.
Axion will connect its PowerCube to the 13-state PJM grid and deploy other frequency regulation systems for the management of intermittent energy resources at the Coatesville Solar Initiative (CSI) site.
China's Shandong Sacred Sun Power has signed a lead-carbon battery production deal with Japanese battery manufacturer Furukawa Battery.
The agreement concedes Sacred Sun to produce Furukawa’s lead-carbon FCP battery series at its facility in Qufu, Shandong, China. The product will be sold in China in order to reach the renewable energy and stationary power market in China. The deal aims to raise up to Rmb255.6m ($41.11m) in private placement of shares.
The Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) and its partners in the Natural Gas Hybrid Vehicle (HGHV) Working Group demonstrated a NHGV start-stop vehicle powered by lead-carbon batteries at the Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in California.
The model, a RAM 1500 HFE, works with a start-stop system that operates with compressed natural gas fuel and a 12V lead-carbon battery. The NGHV Working Group plans to build a second vehicle with the same concept later this year operating with “other” technology to reduce more costs than the first model.
