LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TIAX LLC has been chosen by Argonne National Laboratory as an affiliate member company of the energy storage Hub to be known as the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), which combines the R&D capabilities of five U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories with selected companies and research universities.
"This is a partnership between world-leading scientists and world-leading companies, committed to ensuring that the advanced battery technologies the world needs will be invented and built right here in America," said Secretary of Energy Chu.
"The JCESR batteries and energy storage Hub gives us a new collaborative, inter-institutional R&D paradigm in which to develop the energy storage technologies that transform both the electricity grid and transportation," said Dr. Eric Isaacs, Director of Argonne.
The Hub award, funded for up to $120 million over five years, was selected through an open national competition with a rigorous merit review process that relied on outside expert reviewers. TIAX was part of the consortium formed for the grant application.
"We're very pleased to have TIAX as an affiliate member of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research," said Jeff Chamberlain, JCESR's Deputy Director of Development and Demonstration. "TIAX is the kind of affiliate company we are seeking because TIAX brings to the table a firm understanding of the challenges involved in developing high-impact advanced battery materials coupled with the equally important task of moving these types of innovations into the marketplace in a time-efficient way."
"TIAX is very pleased to have been selected for this impressive consortium and looks to the Argonne-led Hub to truly transform a nationally and globally critical technology. We applaud the pioneering work being done by Argonne and its leadership that will now guide a dense network of scientists, engineers, technologists and executives in the transition of technologies from labs and minds to products at hand. It is fitting that the press is likening this effort to the Manhattan project, which focused on energy release, with the Hub now focusing on energy storage," said Dr. Kenan Sahin, President and Founder of TIAX.
"Energy storage in advanced cost-effective batteries will enable the smart grid, solar, wind and other green energy sources. It will also shift emissions from the tailpipe to the smokestack where their harmful effects can be managed more effectively," added Dr. Sahin. "TIAX has been dedicated to evolving advanced battery materials and designs since its beginnings in 2002, focusing on taking early stage technologies to scaled-up and de-risked production and commercial readiness. TIAX sees such activities greatly expanded and amplified with the vast collaboration the Hub will enable."
Headquartered in Lexington, MA, TIAX LLC (www.TIAXLLC.com) develops and sells scalable, de-risked, prototyped, IP-protected technologies in clean-energy, energy storage, energy efficiency and advanced sensors with applications in vehicles, buildings and security.
TIAX lithium-ion battery-related technologies under development include a high performance electrolyte that functions at high-voltages and high-temperatures, a patented breakthrough silicon anode that lengthens battery run time, a novel active cell balancing system that improves battery life and safety, and an advanced sensor that detects electrical shorts inside cells to prevent safety-related events.
TIAX's CAM-7™ a leading cathode material for lithium-ion batteries, after 10 years of development, has been introduced to the market for portable electronics and transportation applications. Batteries using CAM-7 last longer, cost less and deliver more power. TIAX has built a plant in Massachusetts with a capacity up to 300 ton per year to produce CAM-7. The plant is operated by CAMX Power, a TIAX subsidiary.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
