PowerGenix Corporation Key Developments

PowerGenix Signs Product Evaluation Contract with HELLA

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

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.
