Comments Off on GE’s Dual-Battery Hybrid Electric Bus Maximizes Storage and Power

GE’s new hybrid electric bus tosses out the traditional idea of one large battery and replaces it with two different types of batteries working in tandem to maximize both energy storage and energy delivery. The bus was built by the Federal Transit Authority Hybrid Transit Bus team, which includes GE scientists, and features one lithium battery and one sodium battery.  The lithium battery can provide bursts of power for propelling the bus, but can’t store as much energy, while the sodium battery has a larger energy storage capacity, but isn’t able to provide those bursts of power.  Each have their strengths that, coupled together, make up for their shortcomings, resulting in a hybrid system that doesn’t have to compromise on power or range.
