Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "Cleantech Infocus: Battery Technology" report to their offering.
This report describes the major developments in battery technology for fields including electric vehicles, energy storage and micro battery applications - the key areas in which batteries are contributing to the adoption of clean technologies. It includes coverage of 130 battery and related companies, ranging from large established players to small, early stage start up companies, with information on the investors in these companies, where relevant.
Cleantech Infocus: Battery Technology provides a comprehensive overview of the battery industry and battery technology, focusing on the future potential for battery markets (specifically in the automotive industry, the energy storage industry and for thin film applications).
The Battery 100 + list includes almost 130 companies in total predominantly "pure" battery companies, but also including several chemical and other companies which are developing interesting technologies in the battery space. The emphasis is on the companies which are developing interesting new technologies.
Cleantech Infocus: Battery Technology, published in July 2009, reviews the history and future of battery technology and the players in this industry which will be pivotal to the Cleantech Economy of the future.
This in depth publication provides reviews of some 130 battery companies. The Battery 100+ list includes companies active in diverse segments of the battery market, from developers of thin film micro battery technology with energy harvesting capability, to Lithium-ion battery manufacturers for the electric vehicle industry and on to companies active in large scale flow batteries for the renewable energy market. Cleantech Infocus: Battery Technology also comments on chemical companies which are developing interesting battery technology.
Battery companies are listed on stock markets around the world and they are currently in vogue with venture capital investors. Geographically, there are notably large concentrations of battery companies in Asia (predominantly China, Japan and Korea) - and there is a particular focus on battery investment in the USA, driven by President Obama's stimulus package.
Battery Technology provides a wealth of background information on emerging technologies, the companies developing these technologies and who is financing these companies. The report is key reading for investors in battery companies, or companies for which batteries are key components, such as the automotive or energy industries.
Batteries will be key to the automotive industry of the future and also look set to play an important role in the smart grid, for storage of renewable energy not to mention micro battery applications and the scope for energy harvesting. Energy storage is a critical component of the cleantech economy; batteries will play a major role and the battery companies with the key technologies should have a bright future.
