    1. Stanford Researches Lithium-Sulfur Cathodes

      Stanford Researches Lithium-Sulfur Cathodes
      According to Yi Cui, a Stanford associate professor of materials science and engineering, putting silicon nanowire anodes and sulfur-coated carbon cathodes into one battery is the next generation of battery design. "Sulfur is one of the materials that can offer a 10-times higher charge storage capacity but with about half the voltage of the existing battery," Cui said.

    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.

    5. A123 Awarded Production Contract by GM; Stock Rises

      A123 Awarded Production Contract by GM; Stock Rises
      GeneralMotors awarded a production contract to A123 Systems for batteries to be used in future GM electric vehicles to be sold in select global markets. The contract includes advanced Nanophosphate cells and fully integrated electronic components. The specific vehicles and brands will be announced at a later date. GM battery engineering teams have tested and validated the A123 battery chemistry at the automaker’s Global Battery Systems lab in Warren, Mich. Teams from both companies will now work on developing calibrations and software controls for the battery system in preparation for production.

    6. Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.

    7. Li-ion Battery Oversupply Rebuttal: Govt. is Driving Market, not Economics

      Li-ion Battery Oversupply Rebuttal: Govt. is Driving Market, not Economics
      Lux’s analysis of the large format lithium-ion battery market is fundamentally flawed because it misidentifies the primary driver of EV/PHEV market: Vehicle electrification is not driven by oil prices; it is driven by government policy. Predicting consumer adoption of fuel efficient vehicles based on oil prices is unsound. The number of EV’s and heavy PHEV’s that American consumers will purchase between now and 2020 will have far less to do with the price of petroleum than with the nature of the government incentives and mandates that will drive consumers to make such purchases.

    8. Opinion: Upcoming Massive Glut of Li-ion Batteries

      Opinion: Upcoming Massive Glut of Li-ion Batteries

      Lux forecasts a catastrophic supply and demand imbalance in the lithium-ion battery sector over the next decade … The Lux forecast is bad news for diversified first tier manufacturers like LG Chem, GS Yuasa, SB LiMotive, AESC, and Sanyo; terrible news for financially sound second tier manufacturers like Toshiba, Hitachi, and JCI-Saft; and an "existential threat" for emerging third tier battery developers like A123 Systems (AONE), Ener1 (HEV), Valence Technologies (VLNC) … that were counting on transportation markets that are unlikely to develop.

    9. INE Extends Altairnano Li-ion Storage Contract

      INE Extends Altairnano Li-ion Storage Contract

      Inversiones Energéticas (INE), one of El Salvador's largest electric generation utilities, requested a 90-day extension of a contract earlier signed with Altairnano to provide a turnkey 10 MW ALTI-ESS advanced battery system for frequency control. The extension will provide INE and Altairnano additional time to secure regulatory approval.
