ArcActive Selected to Present at CleanEquity Monaco 2012
LONDON, March 23, 2012 /PR Newswire/ -- ArcActive will present at CleanEquity Monaco 2012; the conference is on March 29th & 30th at the Sporting d'Hiver, Monaco.
ArcActive was included, by expert selection, as one of the world's most inspiring cleantech companies, to present to industry-specific, senior financial and strategic investors, policy makers, legislators, end users and media.
ArcActive is developing a new negative electrode for the Lead Acid battery, for use in Start/Stop, or Micro Hybrid vehicles. Batteries using ArcActive electrodes will address the most demanding unmet need of automotive engineers; a battery that has high Dynamic Charge Acceptance, but which is also relatively low cost. It is expected that Start/Stop cars using ArcActive batteries will consume 10% less fuel, compared to 2-4% if using AGM batteries, at no extra cost. The market for Start/Stop batteries has been forecast to grow from 5m batteries/year in 2011 to 39m/year (US$6.3B) by 2017 and nearly 100m/year by 2020.
