The Problem

Lead Acid batteries are successfully used for over a century. The relative low cost, almost complete recycling cycle and maturity are the bases for further improvements and mitigations of some disadvantages in order to establish a viable power source for the 21st century. Present SLI lead acid batteries suffer from short cycle life at deep discharges. Tubular Lead Acid batteries can perform long cycling at deep discharges, however their price is extremely high (price $/kWh is higher than lithium ion cells). Increasing need for high performance batteries will lower cost is an essential need for load leveling energy storage batteries.

The Solution

The proposed solution enables the production of low cost Lead Acid batteries for load levelling energy storage batteries.

The Commercial Benefit

The cutting-edge invented technology will enable use of lead acid plate electrodes with improved performances namely long cycle life with deep discharge volt age at lower price of per KWh.

Market Potential

The global Automotive Battery Market size is anticipated to reach USD95.57 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. Large-scale availability of batteries in various sizes and specifications along with high current level is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
