April 7, 2022: Advanced Battery Concepts said on March 23 it is to initially supply up to 20,000 of its GreenSeal batteries to support Kilows’ roll-out of ultrafast electric vehicle charging stations in the US.
The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding under which ABC will produce the initial energy storage systems at their Michigan plant — while ABC works with Kilows to potentially license its technology to produce more batteries for Kilows’ EV charging sites.
Kilows aims to expand its charging stations, linked to its ‘KiloPad’ app, to more than 5,000 locations across the US within the next five years.
CEO John Strisower said ABC was “an ideal partner to help us deliver greener, ultrafast EV charging, while providing an excellent customer experience at a fraction of the cost of other battery solutions”.
The Kilows agreement comes just weeks after ABC announced a deal to power thousands of solar EV charging plazas across the US installed by the EV charging station developer GreenCore.
ABC chief executive Ed Shaffer said on January 24 that the batteries would be charged by solar panels at each plaza, which have been designed to supplement grid energy with solar energy.
