Lead battery maker Gridtential Energy has entered into a formal agreement to collaborate on its Silicon Joule™ bipolar battery technology with flooded lead-acid battery firm US Battery.
Under the terms of the agreement, the firms will industrialise bipolar plate pasting and curing processes.
The partnership will also include assembling and testing Silicon Joule™ bipolar AGM batteries using US Battery’s active material.
The goal is to improve the battery cycle life, energy density, battery efficiency, charging rates and manufacturability.
Last month, Indian battery maker Amara Raja Batteries announced a partnership with Gridtential Energy to collaborate on bipolar lead-acid batteries— with the former assembling and testing the US-based firm’s Silicon Joule bipolar reference batteries.
