    1. Better batteries could revolutionize solar, wind power (good overview)

      Better batteries could revolutionize solar, wind power (good overview)

      Batteries are key. They can directly power electric cars and buses and, indirectly, homes and big buildings by storing solar and wind power for times when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow. They balance out renewables that produce energy intermittently so consumers can power up laptops or run refrigerators 24/7.

    9. Energy storage issue highlighted (Re: Stanford study - cost of ownership)

      Energy storage issue highlighted (Re: Stanford study - cost of ownership)

      (Stanford researchers) ... worked out the cost of both building the (storage) technology and maintaining it over a 30-year timescale ... to minimise replacement costs. They derived the “energy stored on investment” for each of the seven technologies to work out how much more energy it could store over its lifetime than it took to build and maintain.

      NOTE: This presents one aspect of the Stanford Univ. study reported here.

      Opinion: Exide - Many Alliances, Fewer Results

      if Johnson Controls acquires A123's assets, Exide may be under more competitive pressure.  The deal would involve the transfer of supporting technologies and could give Johnson Controls an edge over Exide in the transportation market that appears to be centering on lithium ion technologies.  That means Exide will need to do more than bootstrap its reputation as an innovator with press releases and MOUs.
