PowerGenix Corporation Key Developments
PowerGenix Signs Product Evaluation Contract with HELLA
Oct 21 13
PowerGenix announced that it has signed a product evaluation contract with HELLA, a direct (tier 1) supplier to major automotive manufacturers worldwide. HELLA will conduct real-world vehicle tests to evaluate Nickel-Zinc's ability in meeting the high-power requirements of 48-volt mild hybrid systems, while substantially reducing overall system complexity and cost. Micro hybrid vehicles are traditional gasoline or diesel powered cars with automatic, battery powered stop-start systems that shut off the engine while the vehicle is at rest and restart it upon re-engaging the gas pedal. Mild hybrids take fuel economy one step further by allowing the engine to be turned off while coasting, which enhances the stop start application as well as enabling high power regenerative braking. In addition, a starter alternator motor is used to supplement the internal combustion engine with some level of power assist during acceleration. High rate, high power capabilities are critical to the performance of 48-volt systems, but cost and complexity (safety) of Li Ion battery technologies capable of meeting such requirements pose the biggest challenge to their widespread adoption. Advanced battery solutions such as NiZn offer a promising alternative, while meeting both the cost and technical performance targets of mild hybrids.
PowerGenix Enters Contract with PSA Peugeot Citroen
Jul 30 13
PowerGenix announced that it has entered into an innovation contract with PSA Peugeot Citroen Automobiles, a French multinational automobile manufacturer. Peugeot will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the use of PowerGenix's NiZn batteries as a replacement for lead-acid in stop-start vehicles.
PowerGenix and EnerSys Enter Global Technology Licensing and Development Partnership
Mar 27 12
PowerGenix Corporation announced that it has signed a licensing and product development agreement with global energy storage leader EnerSys. After extensive testing and validation of NiZn batteries, EnerSys has selected PowerGenix technology for inclusion into its product line and global sales channels. Under the agreement, EnerSys will develop, manufacture, and market large format, nickel-based solutions for industrial applications including reserve power, rail, defense, and aerospace. Before entering the partnership, EnerSys spent almost a year subjecting PowerGenix's technology to deep technical scrutiny.
