April 9, 2021: Advanced Battery Concepts, the bipolar lead-acid battery firm, has appointed Randy Moore to its technical advisory board, the company said on March 29.
Moore has a long list of industries under his belt, including the aerospace, defence, medical and energy sectors, and is ‘leading the effort to develop revolutionary, high performance batteries that are safe and environmentally responsible’, ABC says.
Moore comes from a zinc battery environment, and is president and CEO of Æsir Technologies, which began life in 2011 and develops nickel-zinc, zinc-air and aqueous batteries. The company’s offshoot, ZAF Energy Systems, was founded in 2016 and is developing a nickel-zinc battery that aims to compete in the stationary storage market. Moore is also president and CEO of ZAF.
Before ZAF, Moore was president of EaglePicher Technologies, which has a broad range of battery chemistries in its portfolio, including lead-acid and lithium as well as zinc, thermal, and silver.
Moore joins a growing number of experts on ABC’s technical board, which most recently welcomed former chief technical officer with CATL Bob Galyen to the fold.
ABC founder and CEO Ed Shaffer said Moore’s experience with zinc meant it would help the company’s GreenSeal technology achieve further potential in other chemistries, particularly nickel-zinc.
ABC currently has seven licensees, including Clarios, EnerSys, Crown Battery, Trojan Battery, Exide Industries, Monbat and an unnamed Asian battery manufacturer.
