EnerDel, INC. – Lithium Power Systems
8740 Hague Rd
United States of America
EnerDel is developing Lithium-ion battery (LIB) solutions for automotive manufacturers that will improve the performance, fuel-efficiency and cost of HEVs. EnerDel’s new, highly reliable and safe batteries are designed to be lighter in weight, occupy less space, provide more power, more energy and have a longer life than the nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries found in today’s HEVs.
EnerDel will manufacture its batteries in Indiana utilizing a unique, highly automated manufacturing process. EnerDel expects to succeed as being the first company to cost-competitively mass-produce a Li-ion battery in the United States. By serving as a local supplier of advanced performance batteries, EnerDel is able to contribute to the success of the automotive companies who manufacture hybrid electric vehicles in North America.
EnerDel’s lithium ion batteries (LIBs) offer advantages beyond the automotive sector. EnerDel’s HEV battery technology can also be used for specialty battery applications such as military and aerospace, asset tracking, medical and other select markets.
EnerDel currently develops lithium ion cells for a variety of applications. They also provide integrated systems consisting of cells, management controls, and mechanical packaging.
EnerDel has developed advanced lithium-ion battery technologies for use in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (“HEV”), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (“PHEV”) and Electric Vehicle (“EV”) applications. EnerDel is developing the core lithium titanate battery technology for HEVs and PHEVs under awards from the United States Advanced Battery Consortium (“USABC”). USABC is a consortium of three major U.S. auto manufacturers (Ford, General Motors and Chrysler) with funding provided by the Department of Energy. In addition, EnerDel has developed an EV lithium-ion battery designed to achieve the higher energy density required for EVs, such as for the Th!nk City EV.EnerDel believes that their batteries and technology offer significant competitive advantages because of their safety, power, energy and other performance characteristics. Additionally, their battery packs are designed to accommodate all of the complex electronic and design features of automotive applications.EnerDel’s technology stems from initial developments with Argonne National Laboratory, combined with industry know-how and expertise from the lithium-ion industry in Japan, as well as systems expertise from the automotive industry, including from Delphi Corporation. Controls Management
EnerDel can offer smart electronics to manage the following system functions:
- Charge / Discharge
- Thermal Management
- Cell Balancing
- State of Charge (SOC) / State of Health
For ease of integration software is also developed by EnerDel to allow for external monitoring of battery status.
