Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Veselin Manev, Director, Research & Deve
Award Amount: $69,581.00
Abstract:
The SBIR Phase I proposal is designed to improve the high end temperature performance of Altairnano''''s nano Lithium titanate batteries and will develop an equivalent circuit model capturing the transient dynamics of Altairnano's 50 Ah cell. Altairnano will study the effects of various materials… More

Inorganic Electrode Coatings for Increased Temperature and Cycle Life Performance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael Coleman, Mr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
With the increase in the utilization of intermittent renewables such as wind and solar PV, integration of these resources into the existing grids requires a means of leveling the output. Batteries have been targeted as one possible means of achieving this, requiring increases in cycle and calendar… More
