TIAX LLC Chosen by Argonne as Affiliate Member of Battery Hub

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."
