mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL) today announced that it has been invited to present at the symposium on "Scalable Energy Storage Beyond Li-Ion: Materials," to be held Oct. 7-8, 2010, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Oak Ridge, Tennessee. At the workshop, mPhase will describe the advantages of Smart NanoBattery technology.
The workshop is sponsored by a consortium of IBM Research and four U.S. National Laboratories (Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, Oak Ridge, and Pacific Northwest). The purpose of the workshop is to bring together the technical community, small business and government agencies, to discuss potential technologies on how materials science will advance electrochemical energy storage science and technologies to accelerate innovation, decrease costs, and improve the safety of advanced, scalable electrochemical energy storage concepts and systems "beyond lithium ion" and current designs.
"This workshop is a very good opportunity for exposing the advantages and unique capabilities of the Smart NanoBattery for forward-looking designs involving improved power efficiencies for critical systems," said Ron Durando, president and CEO of mPhase Technologies. "We are looking forward to working with these organizations to potentially drive our technology into leading-edge applications."
The development of the Smart NanoBattery has been undertaken with funding support from a Phase II STTR Army award.
