THE patented Lithium Ripple Battery (LRB) modules invented and developed in WA will have their distribution and sales facility in the new Halls Head Commercial Centre (HHCC).
This unique technology has demonstrated performance and cost advantages superior to existing products on the market, which have been instrumental in attracting electricity providers and module distributors in mining and community settlements dependent on sustainable energy, or where power line replacements are required.
Sources of sustainable power such as solar and wind all have continuous supply shortcomings that require battery module electricity storage, commonly referred to as ‘standalone’ systems.
The LRB module has shown up to a six times improvement in its ability to cool the battery cells, great for hot climates such as the Australian Outback.
Providing similar energy from smaller battery modules means there are cost advantages of about 30 per cent and this benefit has been endorsed by industry experts.
The invention and its development is a multimillion-dollar project being carried out by Cape Bouvard Technologies (CBT) at its Mosman Park research laboratories.
The technical team is made up of predominantly young WA engineering graduates whose director is an expert in numerous technologies, particularly several facets of energy.
It is also intended that domestic battery storage units will be developed to support power generation such as solar panels.
As CBT is a subsidiary of Cape Bouvard Investments Pty Ltd, its permission was required to locate CBT’s commercial and assembly activities at HHCC including the floor area needed.
This is to be determined by the degree of customer commitments following the completion of pilot field programs and the progress of its other technologies towards commercialisation, one of which is expected to be during 2020.
