New battery materials can store about 10 times the energy of Li-Ion

Technology expert Cary Hayner says his company has developed battery materials that can store about 10 times the amount of energy that a lithium-ion battery does, potentially changing the future of energy storage in products such as cell phones and electric cars.

“This year, 2014, we are focusing on developing our first prototypes that would go into future generations of some of these boutique cell phones,” said Hayner, the chief technology officer of SiNode Systems. “These wouldn’t be the huge general-consumer type of devices right now.”

Hayner joined a four-expert panel to discuss the future of energy storage efficiency at this week’s Advancements in Battery Science event hosted by Clean Energy Trust and the Chicago Clean Energy Alliance.

Panel members included representatives from Argonne National Labs, SiNode Systems, Navitas Systems and Intelligent Generation.
