Planar Energy Devices was also part of an Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) program run by the US Department of Energy. The project received $2,530,342 in funding for Solid State Lithium Batteries.
Although the company did manage to develop game changing technologies for use in both electronics and automotive applications, the product market fit wasn't right at the time, and the business subsequently closed.
Here at EpicGenerators.com we appreciate everything about the mission Planar Energy was working towards. With this is mind, we've acquired the PlanarEnergy.com domain.
We're very excited about the future of the Lithium ion battery market and all kinds of solid state battery technology.
