US and Israel Cooperate on Clean Energy

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

The US Department of Energy (DoE) and Israel’s Ministry of Energy (MoE) have together selected seven clean energy projects, to which they will grant US$6 million under the Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Energy programme.

Qualifying projects must involve one US and one Israeli company, involve energy-related innovation, and be of mutual interest to both countries. At least half of the project costs must be contributed by the companies’ involved themselves.

Cabot Corp, Saft in US low-cobalt cathode research

Mon, 10/22/2018 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has selected speciality chemicals firm the Cabot Corporation as a technology partner to develop low-cobalt cathodes for next-generation lithium-ion batteries.

Cabot will work with researchers at the DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory and French battery maker Saft for the project. Argonne will assist in the synthesis of low-cobalt cathode compositions, while Saft will assist in the manufacture of batteries to validate performance of novel low-cobalt cathode formulations.

The DOE said it is investing a total of US$80 million “to explore more sustainable, affordable options” than cobalt— and “ultimately improve access to electric vehicle technology”.

Battery Startup gets DoE backing

Early-stage lead-acid focused startup Gridtential has been selected by the Department of Energy (DOE) to pursue validation testing at Sandia’s Energy Storage Analysis Laboratory.

The US firm has developed a proprietary technology that replaces the metal grid in current lead-acid battery designs with a silicon substrate.
