Project: A novel lead-acid battery based on ultralightweight grids and nano-crystalline lead oxide material

Acronym PRO-LAB (Reference Number: 113578)
Duration 01/11/2019 - 03/07/2021
Project Topic We will deliver a step-change in lead-acid battery (LAB) performance by developing a unique battery technology based on patent-protected ultralightweight grids and nano-crystalline lead oxide compounds. This project will involve extensive materials research and novel battery designs to fully optimise battery operation. The result will be a doubling of energy density over conventional LABs (from ~50 Wh/kg to ~100 Wh/kg) which will significantly improve battery performance, size, weight and cost.
