    1. Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?

      Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?
      “We believe we can sell at under $300 a kilowatt-hour profitably once we are in mass manufacturing,” said Jay Whitacre, CTO of Aquion Energy … General Electric will open a 1MWh sodium metal battery plant in the U.S. next year. The batteries will get deployed for grid storage and powering locomotives next year ... Japan’s NGK has installed approximately 250 GW of sodium sulfur batteries for grid storage in Japan. Thirteen GW have been installed in the U.S.

    2. Li-ion Battery Startup Seeo Raises $15M

      Li-ion Battery Startup Seeo Raises $15M
      Seeo has been rather quiet about its battery innovation, but we do know that the company has been developing a nano-structured lithium-polymer battery, and in particular has been working on a solid electrolyte that was developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. The material, which Seeo began licensing from the lab in 2007, allows for a more stable battery with higher energy density, in contrast to the more easily flammable liquid electrolyte that can present a safety risk in some conventional lithium-ion batteries.

    3. "10 Million Solar Roofs Act of 2011" finding support

      "10 Million Solar Roofs Act of 2011" finding support
      The "10 Million Solar Roofs Act of 2011" (S. 1108) will have its first public airing this month at a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing … This measure is designed to be executed in tandem with SunShot, a DoE initiative unveiled in February. SunShot is geared at dropping the price of homegrown solar so it is competitive with coal and other conventional fuels.

    4. PG&E Grid-Scale Storage Demo Projects

      PG&E Grid-Scale Storage Demo Projects
      PG&E does have another pumped hydro site in development, Mokelumne, that's potentially the same size as Helms and has the potential to be used to help buffer the 4,500 megawatts of wind power coming in from the Tehachapi wind developments. So, PG&E understands pumped hydro. Electrochemical storage might be a different story. PG&E has two pilot projects using sodium sulfur (NaS) batteries from NGK. NGK's NaS batteries were selected because they are one of the few technologies and vendors with a performance and reliability track record. According to Thalman, the pilot can help the ISO develop the storage markets with this testbed.

    6. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. 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.

      Leclanché (Switzerland), a specialist in the production of high capacity Li-Ion cells, and Schüco conclude an agreement to provide energy storage systems for solar generated electricity. Leclanché has an installed annual production capacity of 100,000 large format li-ion cells. To prepare for the increasing demand, will install an additional production unit with a capacity of 1 million cells per year as of 2012.

    11. 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.
