- EnerDel Company Profile - EnerDel, Inc. Lithium Power Systems
EnerDel was formed in October 2004, when an alternative energy company Ener1, Inc., and the world's largest automotive components company Delphi Corporation combined lithium battery operations. EnerDel is owned 80.5% by Ener1, Inc., and 19.5% by Delphi, both public companies. The company’s management and technical team includes executives who have successfully built Li-ion battery companies.
EnerDel is developing Lithium-ion battery (LIB) solutions for automotive manufacturers that will improve the performance, fuel-efficiency and cost of HEVs. EnerDel's new, highly reliable and safe batteries are designed to be lighter in weight, occupy less space, provide more power, more energy and have a longer life than the nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries found in today's HEVs.
EnerDel will manufacture its batteries in Indiana utilizing a unique, highly automated manufacturing process. EnerDel expects to succeed as being the first company to cost-competitively mass-produce a Li-ion battery in the United States. By serving as a local supplier of advanced performance batteries, EnerDel is able to contribute to the success of the automotive companies who manufacture hybrid electric vehicles in North America.
EnerDel's lithium ion batteries (LIBs) offer advantages beyond the automotive sector. EnerDel's HEV battery technology can also be used for specialty battery applications such as military and aerospace, asset tracking, medical and other select markets."
