The Rholab Project has successfully demonstrated that a lead-acid battery can power a Honda Insight. Now the Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium has a new UK Foresight Vehicle project which seeks to develop this technology further for lower voltage application as Pat Moseley and Allan Cooper explain.
It has been extensively reported that, if batteries continue to be the energy storage devices of choice in future automobile electrical systems, they will need to supply and to accept charge at unprecedented rates.
For example, in the ALABC's Rholab Project it was shown that the Honda . . .
