Bipolar developer hits out at DoE choices

An angry lead-acid battery developer lashed out last week at one of the premier US lithium battery administrators on why the US Department of Energy (DoE) was failing to support the lead-acid sector.

Ed Shaffer (pictured), founder and CEO of Advanced Battery Concepts, took a verbal swipe at George Crabtree, director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) at Argonne National Laboratory, who was addressing the Battery Council International annual meeting on developments in lithium ion.

Scientists identify two prototype batteries to hit $100/kWh target

Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory’s innovation hub have identified two types of battery they believe can become the technology of the future.

The Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) has chosen a redox flow battery and a lithium-sulfur battery for further exploration as it moves into the final year of a five-year charter.

IBM and JCESR step back from lithium-air research

US labs IBM and Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) have downgraded their research on lithium-air technology.

Lithium-air is widely seen as the 'holy grail', not least for for EV batteries. Using the oxidation of lithium at the andoe and the reduction of oxygen at the cathode to induce a current, lithium-air - if ever made to work cost-effectively over sufficient cycles - could lead to batteries with a range of 500 miles drives on a single charge - up to five times more than the average pure EV.
