    Interesting that a sophisticated consumer would balk at a battery simply because it contains lead. All the more reason to call it Carbon-Metal Capacitive Storage (CaMCaS) :-)

    Carbon-Metal Capacitive Storage (CMCS or CamCas)

    It's catchy, descriptive and gets the "lead" out.

    There was an SAE paper in the fall of 2012 that compared SOH between an AGM battery and "PBC#1" and "PBC#2". It was my impression that #2 (which showed improved performance) was made with the automated process.

    The ePower Prometheus Drive System.

    Because of the "stealing fire from the gods" thing (not the "getting your liver eaten by vultures while chained to a rock every day" thing). It has both literary and sic-fi cred.

    Thank you for the update. Regarding optimal performance, do you expect re-addition of the four batteries to affect the acceleration, fuel economy or both?

    My takeaway from the article I read on the ruling was that it related to demand response rather than frequency regulation. *If* this is the case and if this leads to greater grid instability with the addition of more solar and wind (come on, only two ifs), then FR will become more important and Axion might benefit.

    How's that for a concatenation of hopes and dreams?

    Yours,

    Any opinions as to whether this might affect the business model for the PowerCube? The ruling is directed toward regulation of demand response, not frequency regulation, but I wonder if FR regulations and payments could also be affected.

    Could it be beneficial--if demand response can't be mandated, would that not increase the demand for FR on more stressed grids?

    Environmental groups that fought to maintain FERC's policies said the decision was ominous and will likely limit the agency's ability to act in the future.

    "Our higher-level concern is that the grid is evolving pretty quickly with new resources, smart grid technology, on-site power, and we're concerned this decision could really tie FERC's hands in adapting to a new grid," said John Moore, a senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council's Sustainable FERC Project. "It's a pretty strong decision that doesn't give FERC any room to improve the rule."

    Thank you, John for that concise, informative reply. It sounds like the IP protection is quite robust and I look forward to coming updates on progress with the trucks.

    From the CC,

    "In addition, this week ePower also advised Axion that they received notice of issuance from the US Patent Office confirming their foundation patent for engine dominant series electric hybrid drivetrain was approved for issuance."

    As an ePower investor, I'm excited about this news. How much of an impediment does such a patent provide against a larger player trying to get into the series hybrid truck business?

    Perhaps East Penn hopes to offer a suite of storage solutions ranging from inexpensive energy (flooded/AGM) to expensive, high-performance power (PbC via Axion) with Ultrabattery occupying a middle-ground, compromise solution for less power-intensive applications.
