La Croses, Wisconsin-based New Battery Technology announced plans to provide energy storage systems to vehicle makers in the United States.
The company, which has developed a battery for electric vehicles, is developing a system that uses a solar panel to charge battery cells to a specific charge level.
“The battery will store up to 80 percent of the energy in the battery cell when the car is running and 40 percent when the battery is fully charged,” said Josh Visser, chief technology officer of New Battery Technologies.
“The battery can be stored at an elevation of 30 feet or under the car, or it can be kept in a sealed container with a solar roof.”
The company said the system is the first to offer battery storage to vehicles.
It will be the first system to provide storage for electric cars, the company said in a press release.
New Battery Technologies plans to make the battery system commercially available for a price that will be comparable to similar systems already available in the market.
The system will be used in the Tesla Model S sedan and the Tesla Roadster.
Visser said the company has received a patent application from Tesla Motors for its battery technology.
The company is hoping to launch the battery systems at a later date than in the first phase of the program.
The system will also be used to store power for electric vehicle charging.
The batteries can store up an estimated 100,000 kilowatt hours of energy, which is roughly equivalent to approximately three days of solar energy.
The battery storage system will provide the batteries with power when charging is necessary.
