    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. 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.

      Leclanché and Schüco parnter for Li-Ion solar storage
      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.
