Welcome to the Energy Blog

  • The Energy Blog is where all topics relating to The Energy Revolution are presented. Increasingly, expensive oil, coal and global warming are causing an energy revolution by requiring fossil fuels to be supplemented by alternative energy sources and by requiring changes in lifestyle.

Indeed, (less than 5-minute charge) + (9000 cycles) + (-50C to +75C operation) + (absolute safety) in the same battery is very good news.

Let's hope that production unit energy density will be close to 200 Wh/Kg and cost will be under $400/KWh when mass produced.


Yep Harvey, maybe even 300wh/kg is possible in the very near future. As with the new 55% efficient solar cells mass production of lithium ion nano tech batteries will be needed to bring unit cost down.

A123 batteries are being mass produced for the new 36 volt DeWalt power tools scheduled for imminent release.

The new wide spectrum solar PV cells are set for mass production too, very exciting times for the energy re-evolution. Oil, coal, and nukes are about to die.

amazingdrx: I too hope that affordable, high effciency, wide angle, wide spectrum solar panels + low cost, compact energy storage devices will be availble soooon.

When cost comes down, this double development could lead to practical PHEVs very shortly and realistic EVs within very few years.

Yes, it could eventually replace a high percentage of the energy we currently get from deminishing fossil fuels such as Coal, Gaz/Oil + Nuclear, especially in sunny southern USA and many other sunny places.


Whatever happened to the Vanadium Redox Flow Battery?

It would be the ideal system for electric cars because with FOUR HOSES you could re-fuel the battery and storeage... and then recharge the liquid at the gas station.

Do you know if Altair Nanotechnology is planning on entering the laptop battery and small, portable electronics battery market with their lithium titanium oxide material?


If you need a new laptop battery, I suggest you could purchase one from http://www.batteryfast.com , which would

shipping to you fast and the quality is satisfy satisfied.:) http://www.batteryfast.com/compaq/

If all the claims for the Altair Battery are true their stock should had hit the sky. Any explanation why it didn't?


Has anybody bought and tested any of Altair's nLTO batteries or knows of any independently verified test results (for complete batteries not cells) that are in the public domain?

Altair Battery is a great invention i appreciate the developers.. that they use lithium to produce the batery.

I am happy to read your blog and admit the webmaster has done a very good job by putting all the information content at one place. I'd like to recommend it with reference to my website http://www.pctechoutlet.com


Hallo an alle,
ich bin gerade auf einer kleinen Reise quer durchs www. Nun bin ich also auf dieser tollen Homepage gelandet und muss sagen: Der Besuch hat sich gelohnt! Ich werde deine Seite auf jeden Fall wieder mal besuchen! Wenn du Lust hast, kannst du ja auch mal auf meiner Homepage vorbei schauen. Ich würde mich sehr freuen. Nun wünsche ich eine tolle Zeit!

Purchasing a battery alone is very hard for there are many kinds and type. But this blog helps and gives us an idea on what is the safest content of the battery that we are going to buy. I would recommend this one to my friends too!


Good post.
