still think this company is a possibility, southern illinois based.
I applied for cfo position a long while ago before they were bought out by an Indian firm i believe.
Haven't kept up with them though.
Would think that their foam technology, coupled with a washed lithium design that I read about earlier today, would yield some startling acreage numbers for a regular sized battery. Hope they've thought all that through.

This company was owned by Caterpillar when it was started up.

Lead Acid batteries are cheap and reliable with a centuries old track record. You're going to have a tough time selling vaporware like this to someone when they need to keep their forklifts operating 3 shifts a day or reliable start their Cat D10 on a cold winter morning. It looks like it may have some applications where weight is at a huge premium but is there a weight/performance advantage over Lithium Ion which also has a proven track record?

Hydroelectric pumping stations seem like a good match for taking on extra energy and then releasing it during need.
