      Energy Storage Startups Battle Natural Gas, Looking to Asia and Europe

      Low natural gas prices in the US have slowed momentum in the development of grid-level energy storage solutions, an expert panel gathered from venture capital, power generation and utility companies said last week. In the absence of official targets on costs, energy storage companies would have to compete "at a unit below" the price of natural gas, currently trading at around $2.50MMBtu said Hanns Anders, an associate in the energy technology practice at Claremont Creek Ventures.

      IBM: Lithium air batteries for EVs

      This "Lithium-air" approach shows enormous theoretical potential to slash the weight and cost of battery packs. In 2009, IBM took a very long-term bet to see if it could realize this theoretical promise. The resulting project, dubbed Battery 500, aims to produce batteries able to propel an EV 500 miles on a single charge, roughly matching the range of a tank of gas.
