Hello and welcome to this edition of Business World News Spotlight on Success. We take you around the world, into boardrooms and out on job site locations to see how different companies are finding new and innovative answers to modern problems and situations.


Anchor 2:

When you get in your car to drive to work in the morning and turn the key, what starts your car? The battery.


Anchor 1:

When you want a golf game and the course is too hot to walk, carrying those clubs, what fires up your cart? The battery.


Anchor 2:

And lately, when the price of gas skyrockets, what do you think could cut that cost? A battery-powered car? An electric or hybrid vehicle?


Anchor 1:

If you like that thought, then you have to have high hopes for this story. It's about batteries - - unique, long lived, environmentally friendly batteries!


Anchor 2:

We've been using the same kinds of batteries, made with the same lead-based technology for decades, but now one company with new technology says they're ready to take our steady supply of power to the next level.

Consider the lowly battery: small or large, but dependably charged and ready to go.

They keep industry running.

They keep homes going up, faster than ever.

They take us safely to our jobs and back again.

They even make us sing and dance.

But the technology behind modern batteries hasn't significantly changed in decades. Until now. One company is ready with the science that could solve problems that have plagued battery manufacturers and users for years.”

So what are the biggest problems with traditional batteries?

Batteries lose power too fast and many aren't rechargable.

(Consumer SOT: :12 “They run out of ‘go' too fast, and then my CD player is done for the day. Or until I can get home to recharge.”

( Consumer SOT: :15 “They're bad for the environment, unless you use rechargeable, and when you're finally done, you still have to be careful where you throw them out.”)

Manufacturers want to provide batteries that last longer, recharge more quickly and are earth-friendly.

Power Technology Incorporated is ready to help manufacturers produce a new modern style of battery that is lighter, more efficient, and more earth friendly with greater appeal to consumers.

(Walter SOT: :25 General statement: "Our patents are pending, our technology is ground breaking. We are ready to work with industry to provide prototypes for both manufacturers and investors so that they can see how our technology can revolutionize the battery driven power and energy industry. Our batteries will store more energy, discharge a higher percentage of that energy, and recharge more quickly than traditional lead-acid batteries. We think manufacturers as well as consumers will love these products.")

Let's talk about how these batteries work.

“You remember the old, traditional batteries, like the ones you made during junior high science classes? Lead sheets are folded into energy storage units, immersed in acid and then electrical current is passed through. The current is stored by a chemical process, and the units are considered 'charged.' But those lead acid experiments had tiny capacities, and ran out of power fast!”

And like the old science project, conventional lead acid batteries can run out of power quickly, leaving consumers frustrated and irritated at manufacturers of the battery, the item being operated and the inconvenience of interrupting a task because they run out of power.

But batteries made with Power Technologies patent pending, improved methods are different.

How is this possible? The simple explanation is that the process uses a light sponge-like carbon foam coated with lead-tin alloy for greater surface area.

With four to five times more surface area than the solid lead plates inside a conventional battery, the amount of electrical energy that can be stored is significantly greater.

Reporter vo:



Look at this typical lead-acid battery plate and the Power Technology current collector and you can see that the Power Technology current collector has significantly more surface area. More surface area means more energy is generated.

(Joey Jung/SOT: :30-45 “Power Technology is leading the way into the next generation of lead acid batteries. We invented this battery by using this new type of carbon foam that increases the amount of energy that could be stored for use. We're very excited to be developing this technology for both consumers and manufacturers.")

The product is currently available in prototypes only, for investors and manufacturers considering how to improve their market positions.

So while you consider, think about the ramifications improvements like these; first for industry. Commercial grade industrial batteries are a fourteen billion dollar a year international industry.

Reporter vo:

They are used in everything from forklifts that move heavy products from one place to another; to construction equipment, building that new house down the street; to deep sea diving equipment, going far beneath the sea to give us new opportunities, exploration abilities, and views only dreamed of in the past. All that while at the same time, American business is trying to decide how to make their products more environmentally friendly. And Power Technology offers this new, improved alternative.

(Bernard J. Walter: This is a huge question for industry. These days, we're all trying to be better corporate citizens and keep it green. We can help manufacturers do that because our product uses less lead, and produces energy more efficiently. We've got a lot to be proud of and we've got the right technology at the right time." :30 )

Conventional lead acid batteries are heavy and bulky. Anyone who has ever had to change a battery in their car or boat knows this. And conventional lead acid batteries have a poor weight to power ratio; their efficiency is rated at only about 35 percent.

”Independent laboratory testing shows Power Technology Batteries have:

…90% more power

…65% percent output

…20-25% less weight for positive plates

…45-50% less weight for negative plates”

(leave the graphic up)

Set up shot of Hugo Pomrehn


Cue Question for Hugo: What does these numbers (see above) mean to laymen and how do these batteries work?

Reporter vo:













Hugo Pomrehn sot:

That's because what goes in to a battery doesn't always come out. But that's about to change. Independent laboratory testing shows that Power Technology Batteries have an average of 90 percent more power, with 65 percent of that available for output. That increased efficiency means what goes in DOES come out of Power Technology improved batteries.

And testing shows plate weights are lowered by 20 to 25 percent for the positive, 45 to 50 percent for the negative plates. Also, they are rechargeable, an increasingly popular alternative for both consumers and industry.

Hugo Pomrehn is a former US Under Secretary of Energy, now member of Power Technologies board.

(Hugo Pomrehn, “The major problem for conventional lead acid batteries is that they have a low specific energy density. They don't return much of the stored energy. Power Technology's batteries use newly discovered, patent pending electrode structure to bring the lead-acid chemistries to new highs in performance levels. By increasing the surface area, we shorten the distance between energy and current collector, and create more efficiency. Plus the Power Technology batteries have fewer and lighter plates, so they are 30 to 50% smaller and lighter, compared to a regular lead-acid battery. And, it takes only 30% as long to recharge as traditional batteries. Another savings.

All this with the same reliable cycle lifetime as the conventional lead acid

battery. Independent laboratory tests of the Power Technology battery have shown no decrease of life time even with almost double the utilization efficiency.)

Currently, conventional zinc alkaline batteries such as AA and D batteries are littering landfills, streets, and even areas where you would think expect to find them. Many are not rechargeable. Even lithium ion and nickel metal hydride batteries that are rechargeable have no established recycling program and they end up in a landfill too.

Recycling of lead-acid batteries is an environmental success story. Lead acid batteries have successful recycling programs in all advanced countries. All major cities and these days, even most smaller towns have a lead-acid battery recycling facility that accepts old batteries at no cost. 90 percent of these batteries are recycled, if not recharged.

So lead-acid batteries retain their environmental edge from its closed loop life cycle. And the lead in Power Technology's batteries is recyclable.

Cue question for:

How important is recycling batteries and why?

Reporter vo:

(We need an EPA spokesperson or perhaps a pollution expert with a university in Houston ? They'll need to talk about batteries and how important recycling batteries can be? :30 )

Who can use these batteries? The Power Technology battery has applications for virtually every industry. Modern manufacturers need batteries for everything from industrial forklifts to automated guided vehicles and floor cleaning equipment. Battery powered mining and rail-vehicles are now used in mineral industries, where gas-powered machines pose a risk because the gas could be ignited by spark-plug fired machines.

Locomotive starting batteries, emergency power batteries, forklift, marine batteries, electric road vehicles and non-military submersible vehicles are just a few of the other potential future customers. And industry needs lighter, more efficient, more "green" batteries.

(“The benefits? With a lighter, more efficient battery, industry could do more work, for longer periods of time. The costs of new batteries and the downtime losses as batteries are changed less frequently, both could be held down. As a result, costs could be held steady or even lowered. The all-important productivity could increase with profits up. There is no downside.”)

And customer satisfaction? With a lighter, more efficient battery, manufacturers could provide goods that operate better, run longer, and ultimately result in better sales to more satisfied consumers. Since Power Technology batteries will be designed to utilize current industry configurations, there will be no overpriced and expensive, time-consuming retro-fits.

Bernard J. Walter SOT:







Reporter vo:

That's right, the Power Technology batteries can be produced with exactly the same physical format and form to respond to the same specifications and demands as the old, conventional batteries but with a new level of capacity and ability to endure.

(Bernard J. Walter :40 "It seems like every time there's a new technology,there is a retrofit and we all end up dumping our old, still workable products because the new one is better. But that's extremely wasteful. We think one very important aspect of our new technology that everyone can appreciate is that the batteries themselves will look and operate the same as the old batteries. Industry wouldn't have to replace its equipment. But by using batteries made with our technology, they would get higher production rates before replacement was required. Instead, imagine being able to just take out the spent conventional battery and replace it with the new, longer lasting, more efficient Power Technologies battery.”)

Increased production levels: most plant managers live to hear those words, and so do government agencies, anxious for better alternative energy strategies.

Cue question for Pomrehn: What applications are you prepared with, and what will this mean for industry?








Cue question for EPA/Hugo: Will batteries with longer, more efficient life and expanded recharge-ability be helpful, environmentally speaking; and why?

Hugo Pomrehn SOT:









EPA official SOT:

(Hugo Pomrehn: :30 "Power Technology batteries have almost doubled the energy density than conventional lead-acid battery. Power Technology batteries are an excellent choice for deep cycle applications. These include the market of electric vehicles, electric bike, hybrid electric vehicles, under sea applications, solar and hydro energy storage, and backup power for home consumer and telecommunication system. For example electric vehicles such as golf cars, electric wheelchairs, and forklifts can increase its driving range up to 90% when employs Power Technology batteries compare to the conventional lead-acid batteries they use now. Any battery that you can think of, we have applications ready for investors to look at, and manufacturers to check out. We think this will make a huge difference.”

(EPA official: “The environmental effect of having batteries with increased capacity, and the resulting longer life and recharge-ability; all are very exciting to those of us in environmental fields. We think we could see a quantifiable effect in terms of keeping our earth safe. And it's our hope that corporations, industry, manufacturers will all see this greening of batteries as a positive aspect that they want to be part of. It really could help slow down the use of resources and alleviate pollution problems.)

Cue question for Mike Reay: Why are you choosing to work with PWTC?



More underwater pictures

Reporter vo:







Mike Reay/Nuytco SOT:



Reporter vo:

And some of these batteries will be going where no man has gone before: deep beneath the sea. In April 2005, Power Technology announced that submersible manufacturer, Nuytco Research of Vancouver , British Columbia will be working with Power Technology to design a deep cycle prototype battery for testing and potential future use in its submersibles.

Deep sea diving submarines are often robotic with a real person inside, and thus need extremely dependable batteries.

(The magnitude of the performance increase of the Power Technology battery over conventional lead acid batteries is stunning. The increase in energy capacity is a huge advantage for our submarine applications. We want to install and test Power Technology batteries as soon as we can get them made and have them available. We're very excited about taking them with us and the expanded opportunities of what they will let us do.“)

Power Technology batteries could allow their submersibles to go deep for longer than ever before, for all types of scientific, survey, construction, and photographic work.

That's about as high tech, and the sky… or rather the depths of the sea, is the limit on applications for Power Technologies batteries.

Consumer sot:



Reporter vo:

(“Now let's consider the consumer side. With the price of gas, spiraling upwards and unlikely to head downward ever again, consumers need options for slowing down the burn. More than 120-thousand hybrid passenger cars have already been sold. Purely electric powered vehicles may soon be more available, too. Demand for both hybrids and electric and hybrid vehicles is exceeding production. The hybrid vehicles are environmentally friendly, and they are likely to become more and more desirable in the future. It's very exciting to consumers.

(Consumer sot: :10 “I feel like I'm getting punched in the stomach, every time I go to the pump to buy gas. Something has got to change and I don't see gas prices floating down anytime soon. Those electric cars are looking real good to me.”)

(Consumer sot: :15 “Those electric vehicles have always seemed interesting, but now, I'm thinking one of those gas-electric hybrids will be my next car.”)

Hybrid vehicles use less foreign petroleum products. Electric vehicles won't need it at all and they don't pollute the air.

Reporter standup:

Reporter vo:










Reporter on camera:

Power Technology batteries can give pure electric vehicles as well as hybrids significantly more range and distance before the battery has to be recharged, plus they recharge faster once they're plugged in.

The federal government is encouraging their electric and hybrid vehicle production and use, offering incentives to manufacturers, while state and local governments are offering incentives to both the manufacturers and consumers, too.

(Please buy a quote from governor Schwarzenegger? Either March 17, 2005 /"get older polluting vehicles off the road" OR PREFERABLY : a SOT from when he announced that hybrid vehicles would be allowed to use the carpooling lanes. Check with local stations or CNN. You'll have to pay. :15-:20)

(Reporter on camera:
”As consumers look closer at vehicles like these and begin using them in earnest, they'll be examining the batteries that operate them. Hybrid vehicles will benefit greatly from more energy efficient, longer lasting, and faster recharging batteries. And fully electric cars, well, the gains there are
potentially even greater.”)

Hugo Pomrehn sot:







Reporter vo:

Power Technologies Incorporated is ready to help answer that demand with batteries that are 40 to 45 percent lighter, with the same output, and lighter weight means less drag, increasing mileage even further than before.

(Hugo Pomrehn: :50 “With the current concern about high gas prices and alternative energies, interest in battery and fuel cells are only likely to increase. Power Technology is leading the way. We believe that the future will see even more strength in sectors such as battery-driven vehicles. Power Technology batteries will provide a very cost effective solution.

In the future, no matter what type of energies we choose, battery will always be integrated as part of those system. The demand for a better battery will never end. Power Technology will continue its research leading the way to better models of energy storage.” )

And that market is growing fast.

Toyota motor corporation's president recently announced the company's goal to sell 300-thousand hybrid vehicles this year, and within a few short years, 1-million of the automobiles annually.

And Toyota 's line now includes an offering in the popular sport utility vehicle segment.

These vehicles are notable for their ability to carry cargo, and cover unusual terrain.

Bernard J. Walter SOT:




Reporter vo:

They're popular in spite of some of the poorest ratings on gas mileage.

But a hybrid or electric SUV could change all that, if the vehicle could be powered well. There are also plans for a luxury sedan that can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in less than six seconds. In a traditional petroleum powered engine, that kind of acceleration has always guzzled gas.

And other automakers around the globe are making similar announcements.

But the applications are, as we said, almost limitless.

(Bernard J. Walter :45 “We feel we can have a highly positive impact on virtually every aspect of business, both here in the United States as well as around the world. We can help both industry provide better products and consumers to keep our earth clean with energy products that last longer, run more efficiently, and we're also glad to say that they'll recharge faster.”)

Recharge faster? Yes, that is an important aspect of use. For industry, the ability to recharge faster may mean buying fewer batteries and being able to re-circulate them faster. Energy efficiency at it's finest.

PWTC prototype batteries




Cue question for Pomrehn: What can you offer solar power applications and their users?

Reporter vo:



Reporter on camera:



Reporter vo:



Hugo Pomrehn SOT:

But that's only the tip of the very GREEN, environmentally friendly iceberg. Batteries are vital to energy storage, used in all the developing energy strategies being looked at around the globe.

“Solar energy systems use batteries to store electricity collected during the day for use at other times. Solar power and batteries together epitomize the old cliché about “saving for a rainy day.” Storage power and distribution ability has always been a major concern in developing improved solar energy applications in home and industry.”

But Power Technology patent-pending batteries can improve the system without costly retrofits.

(Hugo Pomrehn, :25 “We think we can step into solar power applications immediately and help that industry see a huge improvement. Our batteries capture currents more effectively and the new battery plate structure improves energy storage. Our batteries will charge faster every day the sun shines. They hold more energy than traditional batteries, and can provide 60 percent of added energy efficiency to solar power systems. Think how many more people would start using these energy solutions if they felt more confident about energy storage capabilities.”)

Solar power systems on top of houses, windmills, hydro-electric systems in use




Cue question for Pomrehn: What do PWTC batteries offer for solar, wind, and water powered systems? What benefits will they offer and how quickly can those benefits be realized?

Reporter vo:




Pomrehn SOT:

But Power Technology's alternative energy benefits don't end there. The same energy story concerns figure largely into wind power applications and hydro-energy or water-powered energy production as well. The Power Technology batteries definitely “think green.”

(Hugo Pomrehn: :45 "Our batteries can add 60 percent to the efficiency of solar power, wind power, and water-powered systems. It starts from the moment you add our technologically batteries to these already efficient systems. Our batteries are able to capture the energy better. These systems are already very desirable in terms of environmental benefits, but we believe that just by utilizing our technology, they can increase their energy storage and therefore production by 60 percent or more. Those who make and sell these systems will have improved customer satisfaction. We believe that with the current focus on providing less fossil fuel dependent energy strategies, we can only add to the success of these environmentally sound energy sources. We're pleased to be part of that success.")

Environmentalist in Houston :





Reporter vo:

And no expensive changes to these systems would be needed. The power would simply be captured more fully, stored more effectively and released more efficiently for use by consumers.

(Enviro expert: These batteries could bring a lot of change to the even the most environmentally sound energy sources. Consumers, who want to choose renewable and environmentally sound energy sources, would suddenly see more efficient choices on the market. They'd be more comfortable buying and installing those sources, knowing that the return would be greater. A better, more efficient battery with longer life and faster recharge-ability could turn wind, sun, and water power industries on their ear and help them zoom to the lead. :45)

More consumers thinking green than ever before, could mean more sales. And batteries for solar, wind, and hydro systems aren't the only place where Power Technology batteries can improve lives. Consumers also want convenience. And using Power Technology batteries also means less downtime. Less frustration with a power-draining device.

(REPORTER ON CAMERA: “So let's talk about consumers and what these batteries offer them. For instance, in the case of these extremely exciting to use all-terrain vehicles. The fun never ends, unless the battery is drained. And batteries made Power Technology's patent-pending technology could keep the family going over hill and dale, and rocky trail and mountain for a lot longer than traditional lead acid or NiCad batteries. That's hours more family fun and memories.”)

But now let's consider something more serious: the needs of two million Americans who are wheelchair bound. Combining their existing carts with updated, Power Technology batteries could let them get around as never before, for hours longer. Their mobility limited, it's difficult for them to change heavy batteries. And having to stop and recharge can slow them down.

Applications for these motorized chairs and carts are under development, potentially solving the mobility problems of people who truly need all the power… and then some in the battery they depend upon most.

(INTERVIEW: A wheelchair-bound person who talks about what their chair has meant to them and how they depend on the batteries to get them where they need to, in their lives. And how long it runs. Etc. :40)

The Power Technologies battery can provide hours more freedom for those who need it most: users of motorized wheelchairs. Batteries made with Power Technology's improvements are also much lighter, getting over the little bumps or big ones in life can be easier. Plus, with less weight, there there can be greater ease when it is time to recharge or change the battery.

(Pomrehn: :45 We think consumers of all types, with a variety of needs will be very pleased with our batteries because they weigh significantly less and require charging less frequently. These batteries have the potential to revolutionize the way they do business, they way they organize their lives; from how they heat and cool their homes, to how often they have to switch out the battery in their car, boat, or a family fun vehicle. These are little things, but they have the potential to add up over time. And we want to help industry give people these choices for their own.)

PWTC prototypes

Reporter vo:

So far, only prototypes are available, but PWTC is ready to work with manufacturers and anxious to let industry give the new batteries a test run. The company can work with manufacturers on any level.

(Bernard J. Walter : :45 "Our engineers and consultants have designed systems to manufacture our batteries on a commercial scale. Our patents are in pending, so we can offer this improved alternative to every level of industry for their internal use. Or if a manufacturer has a consumer product that they want to make more satisfactory to consumers. Our product is proven effective. Our technology is ready for use in the marketplace and we've got exciting times ahead.")

And if the possibilities are endless, the horizon is equally wide. For instance, what about the 2008 Olympics? They're scheduled to be held in China , where millions of eyes will be watching.

Modern China is a land of polluted skies from industry and the struggle of getting millions upon millions of people to work.

Cue question for Jung: With the Olympics coming to China and bringing with it more modernization and opening up that huge country with its vast market, you must have some high hopes?

Reporter vo cont'd:









Joey Jung SOT:

The people there ride bicycles and increasingly motorcycles and scooters. Many of those scooters feature outdated engines that send out dark, smelly, poisonous smoke.

In advance of the Olympics the Chinese government is cracking down on polluters. And they're inviting the latest green technologies, particularly all available alternative energy sources, into their country in advance and during the Olympics. They want to show the world a “green Olympics.” And they want more effective, updated transportion with less pollution for their people. Power Technologies hopes to work with the Chinese government to help build new, cleaner more efficient electric bicycles for the huge nation's tens of tens of millions of citizens. It's a very exciting time.

The demand for power and energy in China is massive. Due to not having enough energy resource available, China is now seeking all types of energy and alternative for its expanding economy. For example, 4 million electric bicycles were sold in China alone in the year of 2003 and that market is continuing to grow.

Reporter on camera:

Joey Jung continued :




Reporter standup close cont'd:

China has announced that the 2008 is a green Olympics and is requesting all alternative energy to help them to reach this goal. We believe Power Technology with its high performance, high efficiency battery can use the energy better, can lower the waste amount of energy, and can be part of the green Olympics.

And with a world view to cutting pollution, increasing energy efficiency, and helping other industries enter a greener age, Power Technologies is ready to go forward. Because that's part of Power Technologies plan as well... being as ready to power forward, as the batteries they can help you produce for your use.
