A Path to the Future

Over the past few decades, the world has witnessed a remarkable shift towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources, and this transformation has been spearheaded by the electrification movement. 

The development of lithium-ion battery technology has been a key enabler for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid–but that’s just the beginning. 

Today, the electrification movement continues to gain momentum, driven by advancements in lithium-ion battery technology and non-automotive and non-grid energy storage solutions, impacting a range of industrial applications. Acculon is poised to contribute to a new era of electrification in material handling, robotics, autonomous guided vehicles, port vehicles, golf carts, marine, aviation, power tools, powersports, lawn and garden, community electric vehicles, aerospace, agriculture, and more.

Early Days
  • 1832 - Robert Anderson develops the first crude electric vehicle.
  • Early 1900s - EVs are all the rage in the US, making up a third of all the vechicles on the road until the Model T was introducted and gas-powered cars gained popularity.
  • 1960s - Internal combustion engines and cheap, abundant gas meant there was no need for alternative fuel until the 60s and 70s when gas prices soared, generating interest in electric vehicles again.
  • 1976 - The first viable Lithium-based battery was patented by British chemist Michael Stanley Whittingham. Whittingham's breakthrough was the battery's low weight, high energy density and its capability to work at room temperature.
  • 1977 - John B Goodenough imporoved on Whittengham's design to develop the first Lithium-ion battery, showing how oxide cathodes would perform in a Li-ion battery and be safer than the previous lithium design.
  • 1990 - 1992 Federal and state regulations create a renewed interest in EVs and automotive industry responds by creating EVs more closely matching power, speed, and performance of gas-powered vehicles.
  • 1996 - GM releases EV1.
