Canadian battery developer Electrovaya has reached an agreement with Norway's Miljobil Grenland to supply energy storage systems. Miljobil Grenland has been manufacturing electrically driven vehicles since 1997 and is partly owned by utilities Skagerak Energi and Norsk Hydro. As part of the deal, Electrovaya will get an equity stake in the car maker. The batteries will be based on Electrovaya's SuperPolymer lithium ion technology. SuperPolymer is a battery construction technique that isn't dependent on a particular chemistry. Thus, it's compatible with different electrode materials for different applications. So far there is no word on when the car might appear or where it will be available.
