Pellion Technologies, an MIT spin-out company, will develop inexpensive high-energy-density rechargeable magnesium-ion batteries with the potential to disrupt current energy storage technologies for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. To develop a game-changing 33 magnesium-ion battery, Pellion will leverage high throughput computational materials design, coupled with accelerated materials synthesis and electrolyte optimization, to identify new high-energy density magnesium cathode materials and compatible electrolyte chemistries. If successful, this project will develop the first commercial magnesium-ion battery and will establish U.S. technological leadership in this exciting new high energy battery chemistry for electrified vehicle applications. The project has been granted funding from the ARPA.
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air USA 2012 ,where Phoenix International - A John Deere Company (leader in agricultural vehicles), BMW (cars etc), Mitsubishi Motors (small commercial vehicles and cars), Daimler AG (commercial and military vehicles and cars) and Toyota (leader in electric forklifts, cars, buses) will present. Uniquely, a large number of electric vehicle manufacturers not seen in conventional EV events will present including WheelTug airliner electrification on the ground, Pipistrel manned electric aircraft, University of Michigan unmanned solar aircraft, SolTrac electric farm tractors, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs. Many manufacturers of industrial, commercial, military, e-bike, cars and other EVs will be there. At last you can meet those responsible for the majority of the hybrid and pure electric vehicle market and they all need components!! Most are prosperous growing businesses not reliant on government support that can be withdrawn at any time.
