Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE) secures contract for battery cells from Bren-Tronics for prototype military batteries

Nov 2, 2022

Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE) secures contract for battery cells from Bren-Tronics for prototype military batteries Bren-Tronics prototype battery to feature ACE's advanced lithium-ion technology November 2, 2022 Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE) , a Florida-based developer and licensor of advanced lithium-ion battery technologies has announced it has secured a contract to supply five-hundred 21700 battery cells to Bren-Tronics Inc , a global manufacturer of advanced portable power systems for military applications used by the U.S., NATO and government forces around the world. The Long Island-based company will use ACE's cells to produce high energy and power dense prototypes for a variety of military applications. "The military sets an especially high standard for performance and quality in its mobile power applications," says Doug Petito, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Bren-Tronics . "ACE's innovative new lithium-ion battery technology provides a high-performance solution for our customers." ACE develops and licenses proprietary advanced lithium-ion technologies which provide a significant increase in energy density and improved performance over existing battery chemistries available today. The technology can be produced in any cell format and is readily compatible with standard cell manufacturing equipment. "We are honored that Bren-Tronics has selected ACE's technology for this important initiative," says Tim Poor, President of ACE . "The advanced lithium-ion technologies developed by our team represent a substantial leap forward in battery chemistry and performance." Marc-Antoni Racing has licensed a collection of patented energy storage technologies developed at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The technologies focus on components enabling fast-charging, energy-dense batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles and grid storage. The New England-based company is exploring ways to move the racing industry away from fossil fuels while maintaining the dynamic driving experience loved by motor sports enthusiasts. The licensed ORNL patents for battery components — anode, cathode, and electrolyte solution — are based on discoveries from ORNL’s Sheng Dai, Xiao-Guang Sun, Parans Paranthaman, Gabriel Veith and Craig Bridges. Through new combinations of materials and design, the team discovered components that break the barrier to fast-charging, power-dense lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles. Additionally, the components meet a key DOE goal of reducing vehicle battery charging time to under 15 minutes, which gets EV charging closer to the time needed to refuel a gas-powered vehicle. Charging time is a major obstacle to the widespread adoption of EV technology needed to achieve the nation’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. For Dai and the scientific team, who have worked to advance energy technology for decades, interest from a racing company was an unexpected and welcomed development. “Our research started at the fundamental level, I had no idea this could lead to something useful for racing,” Dai says. “Our previous research was focused on solving the problem of long charging for cell phone batteries. Batteries degrade and lose capacity to hold power. We wanted to understand the parasitic reaction mechanisms that degrade the battery. “There is a lot of serendipity in discovery — we never quite know where it could go.” Paranthaman led the research to develop a cathode component that better maintains function as it ages. “We’ve been working toward this technology for the last several years,” he says. “The coating we developed could reduce degradation and improve the stability of battery cathode materials over time. This could potentially improve the shelf life of the battery.” Marc-Antoni Racing was founded by Ricardo Marc-Antoni Duncanson, who fell in love with racing by tinkering in the garage of a family member who raced cars. After an extensive career with Audi, Duncanson formed his own company in 2017 as the EV industry was beginning to grow. Currently based in Connecticut, Duncanson plans to relocate his operations to Tennessee. With a well-established automotive manufacturing ecosystem and a growing industry centered on batteries for electric vehicles, Tennessee provides advantages to an EV-focused entrepreneur. “Tennessee is a great place to do what we’re doing — motorsports and high-performance cars. There’s a rich motorsports history and infrastructure in the region,” Duncanson says. He is exploring further work with ORNL through RevV, a voucher program for Tennessee companies funded by the state of Tennessee and operated by the University of Tennessee and ORNL. “Marc-Antoni Racing provides an exciting opportunity to test our technologies, de-risking further commercialization efforts to develop this technology for a range of industries,” says Susan Hubbard, ORNL ’s deputy for science and technology. “In relocating to the Oak Ridge Corridor, Ric will be joining a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem focused on clean energy technology that is supported and strengthened by ORNL’s expertise and facilities.” Duncanson expects any improvements made to racing vehicles will quickly be adopted by the wider automotive industry, facilitated by exposure to the many high-tech companies working in racing. Applied EV, an Australian specialist in safety-rated, autonomous-ready, digital control systems and modular vehicle platforms for commercial applications, is using the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to support the design, quality assurance and build of its next generation autonomous vehicles.
