    Battery Breakthrough?
    Posted on Monday, January 22, 2007 @ 20:59:22 GMT by vlad

    Devices MIT Technology Review - Monday 22 January, 2007
    Texas company says it can make a new ultracapacitor power system to replace the electrochemical batteries in everything from cars to laptops.
    By Tyler Hamilton

    A secretive Texas startup developing what some are calling a "game changing" energy-storage technology broke its silence this week. It announced that it has reached two production milestones and is on track to ship systems this year for use in electric vehicles.

    EEStor's ambitious goal, according to patent documents, is to "replace the electrochemical battery" in almost every application, from hybrid-electric and pure-electric vehicles to laptop computers to utility-scale electricity storage.

    The company boldly claims that its system, a kind of battery-ultracapacitor hybrid based on barium-titanate powders, will dramatically outperform the best lithium-ion batteries on the market in terms of energy density, price, charge time, and safety. Pound for pound, it will also pack 10 times the punch of lead-acid batteries at half the cost and without the need for toxic materials or chemicals, according to the company.

    The implications are enormous and, for many, unbelievable. Such a breakthrough has the potential to radically transform a transportation sector already flirting with an electric renaissance, improve the performance of intermittent energy sources such as wind and sun, and increase the efficiency and stability of power grids--all while fulfilling an oil-addicted America's quest for energy security.

    Energy storage system designed to maintain grid reliability and help California meet ambitious renewable energy goals.
    Wilmington, Massachusetts [RenewableEnergyAccess.com]

    The California Energy Commission (CEC) recently announced that a 100-kilowatt (kW) scale-power flywheel energy storage system designed to enhance the state's electricity grid is now one step closer to commercialization. The Smart Energy Matrix system recently completed the Critical Project Review -- a significant milestone that assesses the status of research contracts and evaluates the field performance of the flywheel system.

    When I costed solar/wind it quickly became apparant that the main cost was batteries!  There are stories that self sufficiency doesn't work but when you dig deeper you find that the complaints come from people using solar/wind as an on demand system rather than a trickle feed to battery storage. Forget on demand! You have to use batteries.

    Lockheed Martin to use EEStor's ultracapacitors (Score: 1)

    Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin [media.cleantech.com] (NYSE: LMT [finance.google.com]) announced that it signed a deal with EEStor [media.cleantech.com] to use the secretive Ceder Park, Texas, company's ultracapacitors for military and homeland security applications.

    Lockheed Martin, the world's No. 1 defense contractor, did not disclose financial terms for the exclusive international rights agreement.

    The company said EEStor is developing a ceramic battery chemistry that could provide 10 times the energy density of lead acid batteries at one tenth the weight and volume...

    Better Batteries Charge Up
    A startup reports progress on a battery that stores more energy than lithium-ion ones.
    By Tyler Hamilton

    A Texas startup says that it has taken a big step toward high-volume production of an ultracapacitor-based energy-storage system that, if claims hold true, would far outperform the best lithium-ion batteries on the market.

    Dick Weir, founder and chief executive of EEStor, a startup based in Cedar Park, TX, says that the company has manufactured materials that have met all certification milestones for crystallization, chemical purity, and particle-size consistency. The results suggest that the materials can be made at a high-enough grade to meet the company's performance goals. The company also said a key component of the material can withstand the extreme voltages needed for high energy storage.

    "These advancements provide the pathway to meeting our present requirements," Weir says. "This data says we hit the home run."...

    Denise Gray is GM’s director of advanced batteries and is principally involved in development of the Volt’s batteries. Denise spoke of General motors relationship with EEStor. [gm-volt.com]

    EEStor is one of those suppliers who often sends us information. We’re willing to evaluate what they have and provide information on what our portfolio of higher batteries needs are, so that as they hone in on their technology they recognize what that end game is all about.

    So Yes, they are one of those suppliers that we frequently get information from.

    So maybe one day we’ll see an EEStor-powered Chevrolet Volt?
    Anything’s possible.
