Axion Power's advanced PbC batteries combine high performance characteristics with the proven manufacturability, and 99.1% recyclability, of traditional lead-acid batteries. The PbC patented carbon negative electrode is a disruptive technology in the battery world. While much of the public discussion regarding batteries focuses on transportation, that is just one of the markets Axion Power's batteries address. The PbC battery is also uniquely suited for renewable storage applications, such as wind and solar, and to the needs of electric utilities − providing opportunities for frequency regulation, power quality, power smoothing and potential peak power shaving. In December of 2011, the Company commissioned a .5MW PowerCube into the PJM network. This asset provides revenue-generating demand response and frequency regulation contributions directly to PJM on a daily basis.
