CALVERTON, N.Y., July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Seeking to bring manufacturing of energy storage systems (ESS) used in its electric propulsion solutions for commercial vehicles in house, Unique Electric Solutions (UES) has partnered with the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program (CEBIP), a program of the Long Island High Technology Incubator (LIHTI) located at Stony Brook University, to establish laser welding manufacturing production capability. The partnership will focus on rapid, high quality assembly of production complete high voltage battery packs and ultra-capacitor modules used within the Energy Storage Systems of medium and heavy duty all-electric and hybrid trucks and buses.
Unique Electric Solutions produces electric drive propulsion systems for applications such as school bus, package and freight delivery, and vocational trucks. These commercial electric vehicles, whether new or repowered from gas/diesel to electric, require a large amount of energy storage usually in the form of batteries, and in certain cases ultra-capacitors. The energy storage system is a costly part of electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Bringing this technology into UES’s manufacturing facility will not only lower the price, but ensure greater quality control and on-demand production capability from local presence.
A portion of this work will be funded by a grant awarded by FuzeHub through the Innovation Fund backed by Empire State Development’s Division of Science. It is expected that results will provide additional positive impacts in the form of new job creation and support of regional initiatives for fleet electrification.
