Taking lithium-ion batteries to heights never before reached is the goal of EnerSys and GAIA. The dynamic duo just entered into a definitive agreement to launch a large-format lithium-ion battery cell joint venture in Germany, where the focus will be on developing power storage devices for aerospace, naval, defense and other "specialty" high-power applications.
Perhaps a flock-like approach to building lithium batteries for vehicles is what it'll take. A new alliance has been formed between the Argonne National Laboratory and 14 US companies to try and "perfect" li-ion batteries for cars, the lab announced this week. The alliance, called The National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Battery Cell Manufacture, will ask for between $1 and $2 billion from the US government over five years to help with the task. Much has been made of the way that Americ
Lithium Technologies (LTC) and EnerSys have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in which the two companies announce they're joining forces to distribute large lithium-ion batteries. EnerSys will become the distributor of battery packs using LTC's lithium ion cells for diverse applications, thus complementing EnerSys's current lineup of lead acid battery products (for instance, this Quebec plug-in hybrid test). Enersys will focus on military and defense applications as we
A new four year plug-in hybrid test program is kicking off this spring in Quebec City, Quebec with involvement from battery supplier EnerSys, financial cooperative Desjardins and Laval University. EnerSys is a supplier of industrial batteries and its subsidiary ModEnergy will be supplying lithium ion packs to Laval researchers. The team will work to optimize the performance and durability of packs when installed in vehicles. Ultimately, if the initial phase of the project is successful, between
