Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: Lithium-ion batteries power everything from smartphones to electric vehicles. They’re well suited to the job because they are smaller and lighter, charge faster, and last longer than other batteries. But they are also complex and thus costly to make, which has stymied mass adoption of electric transportation and large-scale energy storage. Yet-Ming Chiang thinks his startup 24M has the answer. The key is a semisolid electrode. In a conventional lithium--ion battery, many thin layers of electrodes are stacked or rolled together to produce a cell. “Lithium-ion batteries are the only product I know of besides baklava where you stack so many thin layers to build up volume,” says Chiang, who is a cofounder and chief scientist at 24M as well as a professor of materials science at MIT. “Our goal is to make a lithium-ion battery through the simplest process possible.” Cont'd...
Representing one of the most significant leaps in solar technology in the past 20 years, SolarEdges HD-Wave inverter technology is a novel power conversion topology that significantly decreases inverter size and weight while achieving record efficiency.
Ice Energy's New Residential Ice Battery Part of White House Initiative for Scaling Energy Storage and Renewables
Mike Hopkins, CEO of Ice Energy, commented: "Ice Energy is entering the home AC market with a disruptive cooling technology. Our new product, the Ice Bear 20, will save homeowners money, reduce their carbon footprint and be the next leap forward in transforming the electric grid from an inefficient fossil fuel-dependent system to an efficient renewable-powered system."

The energy density of the nanoFlowcell® is currently 20 times higher than that of a lead accumulator. This means the stored energy provides a range 20 times higher than with a battery of the same weight.
In the case of the relatively new market for very large, ground-based lithium-ion battery packs for such things as grid peak shaving, weight is not a primary issues, volume can matter somewhat but life, cost over life, performance and reliability matter greatly.
