Over a year ago, we discussed a start-up company, EEStor, that was making incredible claims
about their new power source. Later, EEStor made waves
with its bold predictions and secretive policies. Now, Lockheed Martin has decided to give EEStor a chance. The two companies signed a deal this week to use the new energy storage units in Lockheed's products
. The folks at GM-Volt interviewed a Lockheed representative
about the deal. The representative had this to say regarding EEStor:
"We've visited their facility. We were very impressed. They are taking an approach that lends itself to a very quick ramp-up in production. We've seen a lot of their testing and efforts to measure the purity of the powders that they use, and the chemistry. Well be working with them very closely this year to develop prototypes in certain pursuits."
