SiNode is a materials venture based out of Northwestern University that is commercializing a novel silicon based anode technology developed by Professor Harold Kung. The company is currently seeking partnership opportunities with major chemicals manufacturers.
Perfect Lithium is developing technology to boost the performance and drive down the cost of the lithium-ion materials that power consumer electronics, electric vehicles and industrial storage batteries.
The novel technology is founded on low cost and scalable methods to synthesize nano-structured materials. The ground breaking process boosts ion activity and energy density while eliminating the costly time, labor and energy of incumbent methods.
Sol Voltaics AB was founded by world renowned nanotechnology expert Lars Samuelson in 2008 in Lund Sweden with the focus to improve the efficiency of energy capture, generation and storage using miniscule amounts of novel nanomaterials. Sol Voltaics pioneering nanowire technology has been developed at the Nanometer Structure Consortium where we enjoy a uniquely close cooperation with scientists at Lund University. Sol Voltaics is a spinout of QuNano AB, headed by well-respected CEO Bo Pedersen, a company created for commercialize research from Lund University.
Solexant is a well funded start-up developing third generation thin film PV technologies which dramatically increase solar cell efficiency and reduce manufacturing costs, therefore enabling the commercialization of solar modules that generate electricity at competitive rates without depending on government subsidies. Using printable nano-material technologies exclusively licensed from leading universities, Solexant's flexible solar cells harvest energy from the entire solar spectrum.
Altairnano is a leading provider of energy storage systems for clean, efficient power, and energy management. Designed for power-dependent applications, Altairnano’s family of advanced lithium-ion energy storage systems and batteries is responding to changing demands in energy generation, utilization and policy.
EnerDel designs, builds and manufactures lithium-ion energy storage solutions and battery systems with a focus on heavy duty transportation, on- and off-grid electrical, mass transit and task-oriented applications. The company was the first in the U.S. to mount commercial-scale production of large-format, prismatic, lithium-ion battery packs. EnerDel currently has two facilities in the Indianapolis area, as well as a manufacturing facility in Korea.
