    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    9. Valence's Patent Appeal Upheld by Canadian Court

      Valence's Patent Appeal Upheld by Canadian Court
      Valence prevailed in the appeal of a patent infringement lawsuit regarding the Company's carbothermal reduction technology. The Canadian lawsuit was filed against Phostech Lithium, Inc. on January 31, 2007. Valence received a favorable judgment by the Trial Court this past February which was subsequently appealed by Phostech. Canada's Federal Court of Appeal heard the appeal the week of June 6, 2011 and yesterday [8/17/11] ruled in Valence's favor, dismissing the appeal with costs.
