    Exxon Mobil Senior Vice President Stuart McGill recently stated: “No combination of conservation measures, alternative energy sources and technological advances could realistically and economically provide a way to completely replace those imports in the short or medium term.” This according to C.Scott Miller

    Poor old America has a long way to fall considering her infrastructure is so very energy and liquid fuel dependent. The Japanese, through dint of a national program, have kept their energy usage stable since the mid seveties even though their economy has double in size Japanese putting their energy into saving fuel I think these sorts of changes take a while!

    Bad A123. Bad, bad, bad.

    I’ve also received A123’s form letter and statement that they would contact me with more information. Two plus months on and still nothing new. Valence got back to me the next day, with answers to every single question I had, plus a few good comments. Who do you think is getting my battery money?

    A123 looks good, but it seems to me that they are only interested if you will be buying larger shipments. Understandable, I guess, but still annoying.

    I could not get any information on A123 Systems they are only interested in big orders. One of the emlpoyees slipped and said “like toyota”

    In a few years, we’ll be scavenging those things from crashed Toyotas in junk yards. :)

    I had the reverse experience with Valence, Rick. I asked them about maximum discharge rates and have heard nothing for over a month now. Maybe ‘twas the question…
