New Electric Car Battery Alliance Seeks Government Funding

December 26, 2008

US (ChattahBox) – With the release earlier this month of the first mass produced hybrid vehicle in Asia, it’s clear that the US is falling behind on the production of green-friendly automobiles. Which is why Jim Greenburger, a lawyer specializing in green technology, has founded a new organization committed to producing new electric battery technology.

“The great age of automobiles lies ahead of us, not behind us,” said Greenberger. Which is why he has created the National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Battery Cell Manufacture, a collection of large companies that are seeking funding for research into a better way of producing green energy.

They plan on going before Congress in January to ask for assistance in raising $1 – $2 billion dollars, and Greenburg has made it clear that he believes that money will be put to good use.

“We’re really good on theory and basic science,” he said. “It’s putting that theory into production where we’re falling down.”

Ultimately, the organization hopes that they will be able to pressure US companies to shift their focus to battery energy, rather then create a potential reliance on Asian products over time. The only way to do this, according to Greenburg, is by working together for the same goal.

“We’re trying through the alliance to come up with a way and mechanism to work on an industry-wide basis rather than everyone off for themselves.”

    Will you be so kind to put us in contact with Mr Greenberger please.We are a South African based company and have allready develloped a new technollogy battery.It is a multifunctional battery that can be charged and discharged simul taniously. It opens up the possibility for all vehicles and electrical appliances to function as hybrids or semi hybrids.Test results sofar indicates that the H-Power battery can increase the effectiveness of wind tubines and solar pannels by 40%. The South African Buro for Standerds report (June 2008) indicates that the H-Power battery is 96% effective compared to 65% for conventional batteries which points to a fuel saving of 8% in motor vehiclels.We are now ready to commer cialise the product world wide.
