Obama will be good for Alt E. only after the economy is fixed.
Oil will not sustain the current prices level.
Auto manufacturers have agreed EV's are the way to go.
Does not have contract with Th!nk or it would be news, but is in vehicle testing.
Is working to be in full production of its battery by 2009.
Purchased Korean Li battery maker and will show income for its investors.
Company is diversified in the industries battery, fuel cell, nanotech.
Fuel cell division was bought from Teledyne who has decades of fuel cell knowledge
Fuel cells show the company is forward thinking about the EV's battery range.
The key for this company is to work a contract with someone to buy their battery for automotive application. A big name would be better, but IMHO this company is so new that a big named company can only afford to monitor them at the moment. It would be nice if they could start some sort of PR initiative demonstrating to the public that the battery works, but I'm sure that will come with production capabilities in early 2009.
The straight facts are if one battery malfunctions then it's all over, and that's pretty risky. On the other hand, if they have a stable product and all is well then we got a real winner here.
Th!nk isn't offering anything right now. And just in case you didn't notice Ener1 wasn't the only battery technology on the shelf. This is because they are still in testing. A123 was a top contender until the Prius burned down. Now, whether that was A123's fault or not still raises eyebrows to concerned investor's in the project. Which in turn is extremely positive for HEV.
sentiments: cautiously optimistic
news,, ener1 has just signed a memorandum of understandig with a japanese power/electric supplier to provide battery recharging stations that will recharge to 80% in 20 minutes , target date 2009
Curious guy, his momma, and questioning everything...I'm assuming you are one in the same. It's really sad when you see people like yourself ruin the integrity of forums like this. It's one thing to disagree, but your harassment of the others on this board has really gotten out of control. Maybe you should try to restrain yourself a little bit, before someone reports all of your personalities to the moderator.
I would invite serious, thoughful HEV posters to join together at investorsvillage.com. There you can ignore people who deserve it, communicate in private messages and follow the train of legitimate discussion far more easily than on Yahoo. IV isn't perfect, but it sure provides a better forum than Yahoo.
We call him "impostor ID". He has a lot of free time (no doubt at government expense) and nothing else to do. You'll find that putting all of his IDs (which are usually 1 letter off from real posters' IDs) on "ignore" works best and removes the clutter. I have to admit, I've even done that with the real "curiuosguy" ID because though I agree with his general sentiment, his approach is too over the top for me. I prefer to stick to facts and logic.
Anyway, I'm not in favor of censorship of ideas, but not having to read posting diarrhea seems like the way to go. Once the serious board readers stop responding to his posts, he'll go away. It already worked on the SOV and DKAM boards where he was stalking as well.
