Bipolar Lead Battery Technology to be Verified by the Consortium for Battery Innovation

  • Advanced Battery Concepts (ABC) and the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI) have collaborated for the testing
  • Bipolar lead battery technology has been tipped to deliver improved dynamic charge acceptance (DCA) performance

One of the latest technology developments in lead batteries will undergo well-known automotive testing standards in a research project collaboration between Advanced Battery Concepts (ABC) and the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI). Bipolar lead battery technology will be independently verified by ABC using specific global automotive testing regimes verified by the scientific community.

ABC will test their own bipolar lead batteries which have thinner enhanced positive and negative paste, specially developed for start-stop, micro and mild-hybrids. As a market estimated to represent 80 per cent of automotive vehicles by 2030, the ability of bipolar lead batteries to deliver enhanced performance in these applications is ground-breaking.

Verifying DCA performance benefits of this technology

This automotive battery research undertaken by ABC in conjunction with CBI aims to verify the DCA performance benefits of this technology, which is the ability of a battery to generate instantaneous energy in automotive applications, for example through regenerative breaking.

“We expect the micro and mild-hybrid market to grow substantially in the coming years. We think bipolar is an exceptional technology for use in this market with
improved DCA performance, a key technical parameter for this application, and this project will be key in demonstrating these capabilities,” said Ed Shaffer, CEO of ABC.

The 9-month project will also include tests for partial state-of-charge (PSoC) performance, a key requirement not only relevant for start-stop, micro and mild-hybrid vehicles, but will also provide vital insight into the capabilities of bipolar lead batteries for storing energy from intermittent renewable sources such as wind and solar applications.

“The dual nature of this research project delivers on the priority research targets set out by the Consortium to improve the performance of lead batteries in both automotive and energy storage applications to grasp future market opportunities in these sectors” said Dr Alistair Davidson, director of CBI.
