"The $125 million funding includes private equity investment and support from China where, in addition to a manufacturing plant Boston-Power plans to put down R&D and electric vehicle battery engineering facilities." Seemingly, China is putting a lot of resources into energy of the future. What has US done?

Is this company related to A123? How many lithium-ion batteries technologies are there and how do they compare? I have just read an article that Chinese government is reducing its subsidy to electrical car technology because none of the technologies it supported lived up to its promise.

This company is NOT related to A123, although they are located near each other.

Is the new Li-ion battery something really new so that it can be even longer lasting and be charged faster? Any idea on what it is?
