The next generation of batteries already developed or being developed are aiming to outdo the previous generation batteries broadly on fronts like charge capacity, charging speed and battery life. All of this while also being cost efficient. A significant upgrade is the deployment of bipolar battery technology. Bipolar battery advantages over the previous generation include uniform current density, increased active material utilisation, higher energy density, higher power density and simpler construction. Looking at its potential, Amara Raja Batteries Ltd., and Gridtential Energy Ltd., have partnered under a ‘Technology Evalution Agreement’. Amara Raja and Gridtential Energy in a joint effort will assemble and test the Silicon Joule™ bipolar reference batteries using the former’s active material to test it on fronts like cyle life, energy density, battery efficiency, charging rates and manufacturability. Averred John Barton, Chief Executive Officer, Gridtential Energy, “We believe that Silicon Joule advanced lead battery technology is a perfect fit for the Indian market, offering a high-performance and a low-cost solution.”
