    2. IRS: Valence investor, Berg, understated income by $110M

      IRS: Valence investor, Berg, understated income by $110M
      The Internal Revenue Service says a venture capital business of billionaire Carl E. Berg, the unassuming, low-key New Mexico native who made his fortune in the Silicon Valley, understated its income by $110 million and owes $44 million in back taxes and penalties. ... Over the past two decades, Berg has spent more than $100 million for a 52% stake in Valence Technology, an Austin, Tex. company trying to develop batteries that will power cars. So far, there’s been no payoff. “This is a very tough business, but it has enormous potential,” Berg told Forbes earlier this year.

    3. International Battery Provides Li-Ion Storage to U.S. Marines

      International Battery Provides Li-Ion Storage to U.S. Marines
      The GREENS power systems consist of networkable and vastly scalable 1600 watt solar arrays and International Battery’s rechargeable large-format Lithium-ion batteries that provide continuous electricity for Marines in remote locations and forward operating bases. International Battery’s 60 Ah cells and Battery Management System (BMS) are the building blocks for the 24V, 1.5kWh system which HDT integrates into a ruggedized enclosure. The integrated renewable system, which can be transported on a Humvee and quickly assembled, provides AC and DC power needs to charge typical communication, targeting and computing devices while interfacing with existing diesel generators.

    4. Nanocomposite electrodes for grid storage supercapacitors

      Nanocomposite electrodes for grid storage supercapacitors
      Univ of Delaware (J. Q. Xiao) has developed a new process for the production of electrodes made of nickel oxide/nickel nanocomposites for electrochemical supercapacitors. They have surprisingly high capacity, high power density, and high current density during the charge/discharge cycles. Their process is simple and cost-effective, and could be scaled up for industry.

    6. MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles

      MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles
      A radically new approach to the design of batteries, developed at MIT, could provide an alternative vehicle and grid batteries. "Refueling" these batteries could be similar to pumping gas into a car. The new battery relies on an innovative architecture called a semi-solid flow cell in which the electrodes are composed of particles suspended in a liquid electrolyte. [The researcher] cautions that making a practical, commercial version of such a battery will require finding better electrode and electrolyte materials.
