Just some goofing around with a bunch of batteries. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME (or anywhere). Read more at: http://thecustomgeek.com/2011/09/13/fun-with-a-few-9v-batteries-244-of-them
http://www.ted.com What's the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage -- so we can have power on tap even when the sun's not out and the wind's not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy. As he says: "We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap." TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Featured speakers have included Al Gore on climate change, Philippe Starck on design, Jill Bolte Taylor on observing her own stroke, Nicholas Negroponte on One Laptop per Child, Jane Goodall on chimpanzees, Bill Gates on malaria and mosquitoes, Pattie Maes on the "Sixth Sense" wearable tech, and "Lost" producer JJ Abrams on the allure of mystery. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and TEDTalks cover these topics as well as science, business, development and the arts.

Daimler starts the construction phase for a second battery factory at their subsidiary ACCUMOTIVE’s site in Kamenz, taking a further consequent step towards electromobility. With an investment of about 500 million euros, the site in Kamenz will be one of the biggest and most modern battery factories in Europe. For the official groundbreaking, Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber (Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Group Research & Mercedes-Benz Cars Development), Markus Schäfer (Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management) and Frank Blome (CEO Deutsche ACCUMOTIVE GmbH & Co. KG) met with Stanislaw Tillich (Minister President of the Free State of Saxony and President of the German Bundesrat) and other representatives from politics and economy.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is developing new and advanced materials processing technologies for batteries. These can lead to new battery concepts of which one might be an inherently safe, low-cost, high-performance all solid state battery.
Developments include new material handling and advanced assembling technologies...new ways of depositing materials and creating coatings...
...new advanced photonic processing for drying, sintering or solidification.
Commercial industry, under the pressure of operating at high production yield, cannot take a step back from currently available processing technologies to create new concepts, designs and develop new low-cost and reliable technology with uncertain outcomes.
Universities have very limited capabilities in doing large scale process development.
National laboratories need to fill these roles.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has a major focus on new process development for a variety of applications and will help industry re-invent materials processing and device assembling for advanced batteries.
