9 Executive Director s Notes NAATBATT ANNOUNCES NEXT MEMBERS SITE VISIT MEETING NAATBatt International is pleased to announce that the next in its series of Members Site Visit Meetings will be held in Seattle, WA on May 4-5, The meeting will be co-hosted by 1Energy Systems and UniEnergy Technologies in cooperation with Snohomish County PUD. To see the details of the event, click here to go to the event information page. Member Site Visit Meetings are a regular feature of NAATBatt activities and a major benefit of NAATBatt membership. At a Member Site Visit Meeting, the hosting NAATBatt member opens its facility for tour by visiting NAATBatt members and gives a briefing about the hosting member s products and capabilities. Hosting members also have the opportunity to introduce members of their management team, who many in the industry never get to meet. For the hosting member, these meetings are like an exhibit booth at a major trade show on steroids. Except, very much unlike an exhibit booth at a trade show, this program costs the hosting member nothing. For visiting members, NAATBatt Member Site Visit Meetings offer unprecedented opportunity to gain intelligence about an aspect of the industry, and one particular participant in it, which more often than not opens eyes to new commercial opportunities. These meetings are designed to produce new ideas and new commercial prospects for our members. They rarely disappoint. The 1Energy System-UniEnergy Technology meeting will pack an unusually full amount of content into one program. Attendees will start with a visit to 1Energy Systems, a software developer (with historic ties to Microsoft), which has played a leading role in the development of the MESA standards for controlling storage resources on the grid. If you have not seen the facilities of a top flight software development firm, the visit to 1Energy Systems is something you should not miss. You will emerge from the experience with new ideas about storage and a new appreciation for some of the challenges that the market is trying to address in deploying storage on the grid. From 1Energy Systems, attendees will travel by NAATBatt-chartered bus to UniEnergy Technologies, a manufacturer of vanadium flow batteries, located north of Seattle. At UniEnergy Technologies, attendees will learn about vanadium flow technology and flow battery architecture. Attendees will see how vanadium flow batteries are made and learn about the unique needs and requirements of flow battery manufacturers. Flow batteries may play an increasingly important role in stationary energy storage. This will be a unique opportunity to understand the technology and its commercial requirements.
10 From UniEnergy s manufacturing facility, NAATBatt members will travel to the Operations Center of Snohomish County PUD. Snohomish PUD has been one of the most supportive utilities in the country with respect to storage. Attendees will hear from Snohomish PUD about its experiences with storage and some of the benefits and challenges of this new grid resource. From Snohomish PUD s Operations Center, attendees will travel to two Snohomish PUD substations, where Snohomish has either deployed or is in the process of deploying a storage resource. At the Hardeson Road substation NAATBatt members will see Snohomish PUD's first storage project, consisting of two large-scale lithium ion batteries, one manufactured by LG Chem and a second by Mitsubishi and GS Yuasa. At Snohomish PUD's Everett substation, NAATBatt members will see a second project, due for completion later this year, consisting of four strings of advanced vanadium flow batteries in a total of 20 shipping containers, manufactured by UniEnergy Technologies at the facility attendees toured earlier in the day. Both projects are based on the innovative MESA system of controls, which 1Energy Systems played a leading role in developing. Of course, no NAATBatt Member Site Visit Meeting is complete without the networking dinner. NAATBatt strives at each Member Site Visit Meeting to find a fun and locally significant venue for our members to socialize, enjoy themselves, and form new business relationships. For this meeting, NAATBatt has reserved a private room at the famous Ivar s Acres of Clams restaurant on Pier 54 on Seattle s waterfront. Festivities will start at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4 (note that this is the first day of the program, before to the bus tour on Thursday) at Ivar s. The dinner is free** for NAATBatt members who are registered to attend the program (see the note on the event information page). NAATBatt has organized many successful Member Site Visit Meetings in the past. This one promises to rival the best of them. Please register soon, as there are a limited number of seats available on the NAATBatt bus. But do plan to attend. You will be disappointed, and disadvantaged in understanding some important aspects of the storage industry, if you miss it. March 25, 2016 James J. Greenberger Executive Director

NAATBatt International is a not-for-profit trade association of companies, associations and research institutions commercializing advanced electrochemical energy storage technology for emerging, high tech applications worldwide. Our mission is to promote the commercial interests of our members by supporting developments in the science of and markets for advanced electrochemical energy storage technology consistent with the goals of enhancing energy efficiency, reducing petroleum dependence and enabling carbon-free electricity generation. Our members include advanced battery, ultracapacitor and electrode manufacturers, energy materials suppliers, vehicle makers, electric utilities, equipment vendors, service providers, universities and other research institutions. We are a membership-based organization focused on delivering the following benefits to our members: Strategic market intelligence Access to new and emerging electrochemical energy storage technology Networking and building name recognition within the industry NAATBatt International conducts multiple programs for its members over the course of the year. One of our most popular programs is our Members Site Visit meetings. At these meetings, one NAATBatt member hosts all other members for a tour of the hosting member s business and production facilities. These tours give participants an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the needs and capabilities of individual member firms. Past hosts of these programs include General Motors, EaglePicher, Duke Energy, EnerDel, Cabot Corporation, S&C Electric, Magna Steyr, DNV-GL, Grafoid, Hydro-Quebec, XALT Energy and Battery Innovation Center (BIC). These programs are open to NAATBatt members only. NAATBatt members also get exclusive information about new products and new opportunities in the market. Each year, NAATBatt runs an Energy Storage Innovation Summit in conjunction with our annual meeting and conference. At the meeting, 20 jury selected emerging companies developing market-ready energy storage-related technologies make presentations directed to companies looking for licensing and
12 acquisition opportunities. The Summit is the culmination of an industry-wide survey and solicitation for new technologies. NAATBatt members have the exclusive opportunity to participate in the selection process and get a first look at these new technologies. NAATBatt members have access to ABC PatentEdge, a database of patents and patent applications covering advanced batteries and ultracapacitors developed by NAATBatt in cooperation with the research firm IP Overviews. The database, and the quarterly reports summarizing developments in the database, provide NAATBatt members with deep insight into where advanced battery and capacitor technology is going and where the major players in that market are really making their R&D bets. NAATBatt, as the only international trade association focused on advanced electrochemical energy storage, is a frequent resource for companies looking for products or services involving advanced battery technology. NAATBatt routinely receives inquiries for products and services, which NAATBatt forwards, exclusively, to NAATBatt member firms. For example, NAATBatt recently received and transmitted to its members a solicitation for batteries from a California municipality looking to electrify its bus fleet. This inquiry was transmitted to NAATBatt members well before non-naatbatt members learned of the opportunity. If you think that NAATBatt membership costs money, think about what not being a member costs. NAATBatt is the pre-eminent networking organization for professionals and companies working in the advanced battery industry. NAATBatt believes that good business relationships are founded on good personal relationships. From our members-only networking dinners, to our Advanced Battery Golf and Tennis tournament, to our annual meetings held at four and five-star resorts, we are dedicated to ensuring the development of strong personal and social relationships among professionals working in the industry. NAATBatt membership is meant to be fun, but it is fun with a serious purpose: Helping our members build bigger and more profitable businesses. NAATBatt is a not-for-profit trade association qualified under Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code and works for the benefit of the entire advanced battery and ultracapacitor industry. Every dollar spent on NAATBatt memberships and programs goes to recouping program costs and to supporting activities intended to benefit the entire advanced battery industry. At a time when it seems that the only people making money on lithium-ion technology are professional conference organizers, the advanced battery industry needs to take control of its own market and its own future. Electrochemical energy storage is the most important technology challenge of our time. Solving the problem of how to store more electricity in a smaller mass is fundamental to progress in vehicle technology, the Smart Grid, robotics, consumer electronics, unmanned aviation, fuel efficient maritime systems, electricity-based weapons systems, medical devices, monitoring systems and many of the other technologies that will shape human society in the 21st Century.
