alpha-En Corporation Advances Development by Joining JCESR, a Leading Energy Research Partnership

Joins Industry Collaborative Focused Exclusively on Beyond-Lithium-Ion Energy Storage

TARRYTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - alpha-En Corporation (OTC PINK: ALPE), an innovative clean technology company enabling next-generation battery technologies through the production of high purity lithium metal, announced today it has joined the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR). 

JCESR is a major research partnership that integrates government, academic, and industrial researchers to overcome critical scientific and technical barriers to create and advance new breakthrough energy storage technology. Sited at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, JCESR seeks to establish next-generation electricity storage through a new research paradigm that unites discovery science, battery design, research prototyping and manufacturing collaboration. JCESR focuses exclusively on beyond-lithium-ion energy storage. Prominent affiliate members of JCESR include advanced materials companies such as Dow and Corning; battery manufacturers such as Energizer, Johnson Controls and Lockheed Martin Advanced Energy Storage; Automotive companies such as General Motors; and electric power utilities such as Ameren and Exelon.

"Joining an established and focused research partnership with a large affiliate network provides us significant resources and opportunities for collaboration which are valuable to us as an emerging growth company," stated Steve Fludder, Chief Executive Officer of alpha-En. "Our affiliation with JCESR also helps bridge the gap between R&D and the commercial market. The experts affiliated with JCESR will expand our resources, strengthen our existing partnership with Argonne National Laboratory, and help us expedite commercialization of our disruptive clean technology."

JCESR is one of several DOE Energy Innovation Hubs, major integrated research centers involving many different institutions and technical backgrounds that combine basic and applied research with engineering to accelerate scientific discovery in critical energy areas. They are modeled after the strong scientific management characteristics of the Manhattan Project, Lincoln Lab at MIT that developed radar, and AT&T Bell Laboratories that developed the transistor.
