Mitsubishi, never one to miss a party, is gearing up its Li-ion anode material production, sensing a major growth spurt in energy storage demand.  http://www.greencarcongress.com/2008/11/mitsubishi-chem.html.  Would be interesting to see if they follow advanced lead-acid batteries, which offer similar performance at about a third the cost.  www.axionpower.com is a source for PbC batteries, using a carbon anode to replace the lead.  Doesn’t explode either.  HEV sales for July (most recent month for data availability) were down year to year, however.
