Ioxus to Present at Advanced Energy 2009 Conference on How Ultracapacitors Make Battery Modules Greener

Presentation Will Highlight Tips for Deploying Green Energy Solutions for Alternative Energy and Automotive Applications

Oneonta, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- Ioxus, Inc., developers and manufacturers of innovative ultracapacitor technologies for a wide range of energy storage markets, today announced that Michael Tentnowski, vice president of marketing, will present at Advanced Energy 2009 in Long Island, Hauppauge, NY. Tentnowski will present on the “Battery Fuel Cells and Energy Storage” Track IV on November 19 from 3:45 – 5:00 p.m. EST. He will discuss the challenges and solutions design engineers face when deploying battery modules for alternative energy and automotive applications as the need to conserve energy, recycle waste and make environmentally friendly choices continue to evolve.

Each step in the process of greening battery modules requires energy efficient engineering, the development of a complete solution that is designed with energy conservation in mind, and the use of materials that are themselves environmentally safe. Tentnowski will outline ways to support energy efficiency and reduce the aggregate annual consumption of fuel. Executives and engineers will learn how to embrace the promise of energy storage and lead the way in developing environmentally sound, economically advantageous systems. Topics he will cover include:

  • Greening battery modules in parallel with ultracapacitors, which can store an immense amount of energy and have a response time far faster than batteries alone. This combination uses fewer batteries or lighter duty batteries in a non-toxic way.
  • Using ultracapacitors to support renewable generation technologies, such as providing ride-through during cloud coverage and wind speed changes.
  • Supporting the Public Utility Grid system with power factor correction, load leveling, and assisting battery back-up systems with fast charge/discharge capability.
