"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?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
