Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI)

Research program aims to increase lead battery cycle life in ESS applications

Mon, 05/04/2020 - 11:45 -- Paul Crompton

A research project designed to balance electrical current across banks of advanced lead batteries supporting renewable energy systems has been launched by battery testing firm Electric Applications (EAI).

The 18-month study in Arizona, US, will investigate how balancing the electrical current across large strings of batteries can improve cycle life— a key area of research that will reduce the overall cost of using lead batteries in stationary applications.

Consortium for Battery Innovation launched first workshop in China

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

A global battery consortium will pave the way for a “raft of new research” into developing next-generation lead battery technology at a workshop in China tomorrow.

The Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI), formerly the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium, will hold its first workshop of the year in Shanghai on 5 March— ahead of unveiling a “new technical roadmap designed to extend both the performance and lifetime of the core battery technology”.

The CBI said the programme would fund projects designed to increase the cycle life of advanced lead batteries and further improve their ability to operate in applications such as start-stop and micro-hybrid applications.
