A123 Systems, LLC announced that its businesses focused on advanced batteries for electric grid, backup power and lead-acid replacements for commercial applications will be branded A123 Energy Solutions.

This will allow the company to combine the activities of several previous groups of A123 Systems under one division.

This new division, headquartered in Westborough Massachusetts, will continue to design, develop, and manufacture lithium-ion energy storage systems ranging from small industrial batteries to multi-megawatt grid-scale energy storage systems.

A123 Energy Solutions said it will also continue to support its network of value-add channel partners, distributors and resellers for A123 Systems’ Nanophosphate cell products.

“A123 Energy Solutions has always been focused on high performance, safe and reliable battery systems and will continue to develop new energy storage products under this new brand, which helps to distinguish our activities from the transportation division in Livonia and the technologies division in Waltham,” said Bud Collins, President of A123 Energy Solutions.

A123 Energy Solutions unveiled its new brand at the AWEA Windpower 2013 conference, held in Chicago.

A123 Systems, LLC is the part of A123 that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wanxiang Group.
