Ion Storage Systems (ION), the battery technology company founded by ECS President Eric Wachsman, announced the initial closing of its $30 million Series A financing round. Clear Creek Investments, VoLO Earth Ventures, and Alsop Louie Partners led the investment. With the funding, ION will commission and qualify a battery cell manufacturing line capable of producing 10MWh/yr of safe, energy dense and versatile solid state batteries.

Ion Storage Systems

ION started in Dr. Wachsman’s University of Maryland chemistry lab with a $574,275 federal grant. The company’s high-energy dense, nonflammable solid state lithium metal batteries are safer, lighter, pack tighter density, tolerate greater abuse, and have reduced volume and weight. The new financing enables the company to launch a factory near Washington, D.C., and begin commercial production of the batteries. Aerospace and defense customers will receive the first commercial cells followed by development projects with multiple electric vehicle manufacturers, defense contractors, and consumer electronics companies.

Dr. Y. Shirley Meng

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory appointed Y. Shirley Meng to be Chief Scientist at the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS) with a joint appointment as a professor at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at The University of Chicago. She assumes the position in January 2022. Dr. Meng joined ECS as a graduate student in 2007 and calls the Society her “professional home.” She is on the Society’s Board of Directors and serves as Chair of the ECS Battery Division. 

“To tackle the climate crisis, sustainable and resilient energy storage is one of the most important technologies humanity needs. I am excited and humbled to take up the role of ACCESS chief scientist. At the same time, as a faculty member of the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, I hope to build an innovation ecosystem where we can train the next generation workforce, foster meaningful relations with industry both domestic and international, and make breakthroughs in energy storage technologies in the decade to come,” said Dr. Meng.
