November 18, 2021: Bipolar battery firm Advanced Battery Concepts has promoted Michael Everett to president alongside his current job as chief operating officer, with the main objective of commercializing the firm’s new Home Emergency Energy product line, the firm said on November 8.
The HEES, which uses the firm’s GreenSeal bipolar batteries to provide back-up power storage when grid power is out, was launched in September 2021.
Everett joined ABC in June 2019 from Trojan Battery, which had been bought by C&D Technologies in November 2018.
At Trojan he was senior vice president for engineering for three years, following 13 years at Maxwell Technologies as CTO and vice president.
One of Everett’s key tasks has been to industrialize ABC’s GreenSeal processes and manufacturing equipment, which enables continuous production of electrode assembly so that OEMs can build the batteries in-house at manufacturing scale volumes.
“Michael Everett has been a great addition and contributor to the Advanced Battery Concepts team and its growth over the past two years,” said ABC founder Ed Shaffer.
“His ability to lead our industrialization programme and focus on process improvements has been a key to his promotion as president.”
“GreenSeal batteries unlock much higher value for the lead battery industry than historically achievable, as measured by the higher performance, longer lifetime and more efficient use of raw materials and resources in manufacturing, and there is more to come,” said Everett.
