General Motor's director of hybrid energy storage systems, Denise Gray (pictured), and Mary Ann Wright, vice president and general manager of hybrid battery systems at Johnson Controls Inc., told a congressional panel today that U.S. auto suppliers need the federal government's help to create the high-tech future-car batteries we're all waiting for. Those lithium ion and nanotech batteries aren't going to create themselves, you know.

Automotive News (subs req'd) is reporting that the two experts spoke at a subcommittee of the House Science and Technology Committee hearing. Rep. Nick Lampson, D-Texas, chairman of the subcommittee on energy and environment, said that advanced battery legislation is being drafted by committee leaders.
