      GE’s New Current Division Warms Up to Boston’s Clean-Tech Community

      To many in Boston’s clean-tech community, General Electric’s launch of its new energy division, Current, here is just as important as the decision to move its corporate headquarters to the city.

      New Battery May Give Grid a Boost

      It might be impossible to catch lightning in a bottle. But an MIT materials science professor, Don Sadoway, has figured out a way to pack it in a box not much bigger than a washing machine. After years of lab work at the Cambridge company that’s now known as Ambri Inc., Sadoway’s liquid-metal batteries will be connected to the electric grid in 2015 for the first time. Affordable, efficient power storage is a long-sought Holy Grail for the utility industry. The grid-scale batteries currently available use the same technology that is in laptops and cellphones and are considered impractical for widescale use, in part because they break down over time.
