Made up of thin films created using extrusion techniques perfected by the Bolloré Group, LMP batteries stand out in terms of power, high energy density and safety of use.
They are dry batteries (i.e. entirely solid), conferring numerous advantages, notably in safety terms.
The solid electrolyte limits local pollution risks in case of an accident or damage to the integrity of the battery pack.
This battery, under normal usage conditions, has a lifetime of more than 3,000 charge cycles.
The LMP battery contains no solvent, an advantage in terms of environmental protection, making it easier to recycle. The LMP battery pack has a unit capacity of up to 30 kWh, enabling an electric vehicle such as the Bluecar to reach top speeds of up to 130 km/h and to benefit from a range of over 250 kilometres under normal urban driving conditions.
These battery packs, when connected to the electrical grid, can store energy and mitigate instabilities in the network.
Similarly, connected to renewable energy sources (solar, wind), they can provide autonomous systems for transforming and managing power, providing access to energy for those not connected to an electrical grid.
The main benefits of this technology include:
- high levels of energy density and power;
- better safety in use than liquid electrolyte batteries thanks to much higher temperature stability, preventing the risk of dangerous overheating;
- proven performance and reliability on the ground thanks to the Autolib’ experience;
- life expectancy in excess of 3,000 charge cycles;
- a perfected, continuous and high yield manufacturing process;
- easy recycling thanks to an absence of toxic components.
