Fiamm to supply Ford with AFB lead-acid batteries to power start-stop vehicles

Wed, 03/03/2021 - 10:25 -- Vic

Battery maker Fiamm has secured a deal to supply its advanced flooded lead-acid technology to power Ford’s start-stop vehicles.

Fiamm Energy Technology will supply the ecoForce batteries from its Veronella plant in Italy. 

Advanced flooded batteries (AFB) are suitable for start-stop applications because they are better equipped to support electrical loads while the engine is off, and power deep cycling associated with frequent starts and stops, said Paolo Perazzi, head of the mobility business in FIAMM Energy Technology.                    

Fiamm Energy Technology estimates the European start-stop original equipment battery demand was more than 16 million units in 2019 and the replacement market could reach 23.5 million units in 2025. 

Analysts Infiniti Research predict the start-stop battery market is poised to grow by $ 7.85 billion during 2020-2024, progressing at a CAGR of 22% during the forecast period.

Meanwhile, analysts Global Market Insights believe annual installation of start-stop batteries in Europe will exceed 20 million units by 2026.

The Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) is seeking participants for a $300,000 US Department of Energy (DOE) funded lead carbon battery research programme.

The programme, which was unveiled at an ALABC meeting during the 14th European Lead Acid Battery Conference in Edinburgh, will include six lead carbon batteries to be tested in 12V stop-start automotive applications. The DOE is expected to put up $150,000 for the one-year research programme, slated to commence in early 2015, with the six participants stumping up $25,000 match funding apiece.

Fri, 12/13/2013 - 10:40 -- Ruth Williams
Bipolar batteries also use the entire surface area between each cell to transfer current and cause less stress, improving lifetime and performance.

British bipolar battery maker Atraverda is launching a new 24V lead-acid battery in the second quarter of 2014.

The new battery is an uprated version of its first 24V, 15Ah bipolar battery, hundreds of which have been trialled, mostly for electric wheelchairs and golf carts. Following feedback from its clients wanting a product with higher volumetric energy density, Atraverda is to launch a 24V, 18Ah battery by summer 2014.
