September 12, 2013 – Spanish electric mobility leader Going Green announced the selection of AllCell Technologies to supply lithium-ion batteries for the recently launched Core electric scooter. AllCell’
s e-scooter batteries leverage the firm’s proprietary thermal management technology to increase the Core’s drive range and cycle life while simultaneously providing an extra layer of safety. The Core’s powerful 4kW motor coupled with a drive range of up to 60 km are a perfect fit for fleet and vehicle-sharing customers, including Barcelona’s groundbreaking e-scooter sharing program.
Going Green and AllCell have been working together for most of the year to design and launch the removable 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery using high energy-density cells and AllCell’s proprietary thermal management material. AllCell’
s technology employs a composite material manufactured from phase change materials (PCM) and graphite that effectively absorbs and distributes heat through the battery pack to avoid hotspots and limit maximum temperature. Because AllCell’s PCM technology operates passively, it does not require any energy to operate and is the only option to protect batteries from overheating in applications where active cooling systems are impractical.
The Core e-scooter is the most recent electric vehicle designed and produced by Going Green. Experience with car sharing programs in several Spanish cities (including Pamplona and Gijón) and Iberdrola’s corporate fleet coupled with the knowledge built through five years as a distributor of e-bicycles and e-scooters provided Going Green with the ideal background to design the Core. Going Green partnered with the city of Barcelona to incorporate the Core as part of Motit, Barcelona’s innovative public e-scooter sharing program. Motit launched with a pilot program of 50 scooters this summer, with plans to expand to 500 vehicles by mid-2014. Going Green is currently expanding this innovative and successful mobility model to other European and U.S. cities through franchise agreements with local partners. AllCell and Going Green are currently collaborating on the design of the next-generation batteries that will further increase the Core’s drive range.
“We are very pleased with our selection of AllCell as our battery supplier,” said Going Green CEO Gonzalo Alonso. “Our ability to offer electric scooters with powerful, long-lasting, and safe batteries is a critical differentiator for fleet and vehicle sharing programs in particular.”
According to AllCell CEO Said Al-Hallaj, “Going Green is hands-down the e-mobility market leader in Spain, and we are thrilled to be working with them as they continue to develop innovative products and services that make electric vehicle use economical, convenient, and stylish.”About AllCell Technologies
AllCell Technologies (www.allcelltech.com
) designs and manufactures lithium-ion battery packs for transportation and renewable energy applications. The company’s patented thermal management technology allows production of compact, lightweight, and long-lasting batteries. AllCell’
s thermal management technology is based on the use of phase change materials (PCM) to surround each lithium-ion cell, absorbing and conducting heat away to dramatically extend the life of the cells and prevent fire or damage to the battery. AllCell’
s products avoid the need for expensive, complicated, and inefficient active thermal management systems, replacing pumps, motors, and hoses with an elegant passive system that requires no energy to operate and has no moving parts.About Going Green
