Large Ion Battery Technology and ApplicationHenny Wiggers, managing director of OGRON BV, announced that the company will be present during the 5th International Symposium of Large Ion Battery Technology and Application (LLIBTA; June 8 - 10, 2009; Long Beach, California). .
At this event, Prof. Schoonman, Technical University of Delft will present the scientific fundamentals of this invention. GRON plans to present a standard car equipped with a 70 kWh battery, with a 500 km reach. rechargeable within 5 minutes During these presentations, all relevant data will be recorded and shown.
According to Mr. Wiggers, it is planned to also use this conference to contact battery manufacturers and investors.
In summary, we are confident that this invention will lead to significant cost reductions; both in terms of investments and materials used, and that these storage systems could be an effective tool in the larger context of "climate change". Through this technology, renewable energy will become more economic and easier to transport to the ultimate users. This new storage technology can help to decentralise energy production and make better use of wind power and solar energy for cities and communities.
The Technical University of Delft and myself are pleased to be part of this project.
