    2. AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES is bidding on a 400MW battery storage system for a Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) request for new power. This project [is] an alternative to new generation on Long Island. It's a 1,600-megawatt-hour system providing operating reserve services."When we started in this business, it was unheard of to use lithium-ion," said John Zahurancik, the VP, Deployment and Operations, at AES Energy Storage. But that technology has become the go-to material. "Lithium-ion is understood and packaged," according to Zahurancik, "but we track over 100 technology companies at various levels of activity -- with a handful that we think are in the top tier." These include flow batteries, lithium-ion, and advanced lead acid batteries.

    3. Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy

      Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy
      The basic premise of alternative energy is that widespread deployments of wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles will slash hydrocarbon consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and give us a cleaner, greener and healthier planet. That premise, however, is fatally flawed because our planet cannot produce enough non-ferrous industrial metals to make a meaningful difference and the prices of those metals are even more volatile than the prices of the hydrocarbons that alternative energy hopes to supplant.

    5. 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.

    6. Li-ion Battery Recycling is Difficult; Lead Acid Recycling is Profitable

      Lithium iron phosphate batteries from A123 Systems (AONE) and Valence Technologies (VLNC), lithium manganese batteries from Ener1 (HEV) and lithium titanate batteries from Altair Nanotechnologies (ALTI) will never be reasonable candidates for recycling, which effectively guarantees that buyers will ultimately be required to pay huge up-front disposal fees ... Lead-acid batteries are the most widely recycled product in the world because they're 70% lead by weight, the recycling process is simple and a robust global recycling infrastructure already exists. Many leading lead-acid battery manufacturers including Johnson Controls (JCI) and Exide Technologies (XIDE) view their recycling operations as major profit centers that also insure continuity of raw materials supply.

    7. 24M Technologies Launches Based on Technology from A123 Systems and MIT; Secures $10 Million in Series A Financing

      24M Technologies Launches Based on Technology from A123 Systems and MIT; Secures $10 Million in Series A Financing

      24M Technologies launched today as a new venture focused on commercializing next-generation energy storage systems based on technology out of A123 Systems, a developer and manufacturer of advanced Nanophosphate™ lithium ion batteries and systems, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The company also announced that ARPA-E has awarded a total of $6M to a collaborative effort between 24M, MIT and Rutgers to further develop its technology, on top of previous funding to MIT from DARPA.
