Global battery research consortium to unveil research priorities in China

Global battery research consortium to unveil research priorities in China

Battery experts will meet in Shanghai, China on 5-6 March to review progress developing the next generation of advanced lead batteries. The meeting will be held at the Marriott Renaissance Shanghai Putuo.

The Consortium for Battery Innovation, a newly-formed research group made up of battery companies and research institutions worldwide, is spending two days to review the latest research breakthroughs in the technology amid an expected hike in demand for battery energy storage across the country.

The technical workshop takes place as China’s Department for Energy described lead batteries as a “backbone” national industry as it announced plans to improve the collection rate of lead batteries in a bid to improve its recycling performance. The workshop will also discuss current lead battery recycling technologies employed in Europe and North America-where the current collection and recycling rate for lead batteries is over 99%.

The Consortium – whose company members in China include Shuangdeng Group China Shoto, Shandong Jinkeli Power Sources Technology, Narada Power Source, Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources and Tianneng Power – plans to discuss market developments in China as well as unveiling research plans for the next two years.

The Consortium, which was previously known as ALABC, has funded pre-competitive research into lead batteries for more than 25 years, ushering breakthroughs such as start-stop battery technology which improves energy efficiency and reduces pollution. Lead batteries are also essential for electric vehicles, with virtually all electric vehicles employing lead batteries for essential safety and back-up functions such as lighting and other in-car safety and security systems.

Notes to editors:

Consortium website:

1: The Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI) is the only global pre-competitive research organization funding innovation in lead batteries for energy storage, motive and automotive applications: www.batteryinnovation.org

2. CBI aims to improve lead battery performance through pre-competitive research, focusing on all applications of lead batteries.

3: Lead batteries currently account for 75 per cent of worldwide rechargeable battery energy storage. As well as starter, lighting and ignition batteries in vehicles, lead batteries support everything from back-up power for data centers, mobile networks and hospitals to e-bikes, forklift trucks, boats and military applications. Increasingly, lead batteries are supporting renewable energy including solar and wind farms and micro-grids.

4: The Consortium’s technical roadmap will be published at the BCI Convention, New Orleans, USA, 28 April-1 May 2019.

国际铅和铅电池会议即将在沪召开

                                           ——宣布成立国际电池创新联盟,公布全球研发重点

  全球电池专家将于3月5-6日齐聚中国上海,探讨新一代先进铅酸蓄电池的开发进展。此次大会将在上海明捷万丽酒店举行。

  在电池储能需求有望在中国呈现显著增长之际,由世界领先的电池企业和电池研究机构发起组成的最新研究团体——国际电池创新联盟(Consortium for Battery Innovation, CBI)在上海主办了这次为期两天的研讨会。

  本次研讨会的举办背景是中国为提高循环利用效率,已宣布要提高铅电池的回收率,而国家能源局已将铅电池列为国家“支柱性”产业。本次研讨会还将讨论目前在欧洲和北美使用的铅电池再利用技术。在这些地区,铅电池的回收和循环利用率现已超过99%。

  国际电池创新联盟将在本次研讨会上探讨中国市场发展动态,并将公布未来两年的研究计划。联盟的中国会员企业包括双登集团、山东金科力电源科技有限公司、南都电源动力股份有限公司、山东圣阳电源股份有限公司及天能动力等。

  国际电池创新联盟的前身是国际先进铅酸蓄电池联合会(ALABC),成立25年来一直为铅酸蓄电池的研究提供资金,从而引领了启停电池等技术突破,提高了能效,降低了污染。对于电动车来说,铅酸蓄电池也是很关键的,因为几乎所有电动车都在利用铅酸蓄电池来提供基本的安全和备份功能,如照明和其他车内安全系统等。

  欲参加本次会议,请联系CBI中国代表Tony Tong: ttlledo@163.com.。
