Braemer Energy Ventures Co-founder Touts Ioxus on Bloomberg TV

William Lese, Braemer Energy Ventures co-founder and a member of the Ioxus board of directors, recently spoke to Bloomberg Television about why his group continues to invest in energy storage technology. On the show “Money Moves with Deirdre Bolton,” Lese highlighted a few of his firm’s recent investments, including Ioxus.

Speaking to the financial news channel’s audience, which includes 200 million homes around the world and 4.6 million unique monthly website visitors, Lese noted that there are many applications for energy storage, but one of the most exciting for him is in the automotive industry.

Lese said that next-generation vehicles – already on the rise on the roads of the U.S., Europe and Japan – will be micro hybrids that rely on more efficient energy storage technology for start-stop functions. Those hybrids are a prime application for ultracapacitors, said Lese, because ultracaps let manufacturers deliver power efficiently at attractive price points.

“Ioxus is a company that I’m very excited about in particular because the growth in this company is tremendous over the next couple of years,” Lese told Bloomberg Television. “The growth is just off the chart.”

When the show’s host pressed Lese to elaborate on his enthusiasm for ultracaps, he pointed out that evolving emissions standards will drive the adoption of micro hybrids, but so will manufacturer and consumer interest in robust technology and better fuel economy.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
