Project Updates, Change in Presidency Highlight ALABC Steering Committee Meeting
While updates of current ALABC projects generated significant discussion at the recent Steering Committee meeting last week in Scottsdale, AZ, a great deal of attention was given to the future of the program – including a change in presidential leadership. The informative, semi-annual meeting, which followed the proceedings of the Battery Council International’s 124th Convention, ended with the announcement that Dr. Pat Moseley was stepping down as president and the subsequent vote to install former ILA Executive Director Dr. David Wilson as his successor.
A long-time veteran of the lead-acid battery industry, Dr. Moseley will assume the title President Emeritus and will remain active within the ALABC, especially in regard to preparations for the upcoming 2013-2015 research program. Dr. Wilson, who just recently retired from the International Lead Association (, will step in to provide continued leadership for the consortium as well as additional consulting in various administrative capacities.
Aside from the announcement, the Steering Committee meeting included technical presentations by Allan Cooper on the status of current European ALABC demonstration programs, like the LC Super Hybrid, and by Sally Sun (for Don Karner) of ECOtality North America on the status of the Honda Civic HEV demonstration program (the vehicle was on display throughout the BCI proceedings). The day before, Allan Cooper participated along with Dr. Moseley in a panel discussion on start/stop technology, a review of which will be published in an upcoming issue of Keeping Pace.
The meeting also included a presentation by ALABC Program Manager Dr. Boris Monahov that provided updates on the ALABC’s budget and a status overview of the projects that comprise the current 2010-2012 research program. Dr. Monahov informed attendees that the recent additions of Trojan Battery (USA), Hubei Camel Storage Battery (China), Addenda Corporation (USA), and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (South Africa) have increased the membership to 70, and the outlook for recruiting additional members was very positive for the immediate future of the program.
Other meeting highlights included updates from the ALABC’s Public Affairs & Marketing (PAM) committee, as well as a brief overview of the ALABC’s lobbying efforts in the U.S. For further information on the ALABC Steering Committee meeting or the preceding start/stop discussion at the BCI convention, please contact Anita Wright at
