A123 Systems LLC says its businesses that are focused on batteries and energy storage solutions for power grid and related applications now fall under a new brand, A123 Energy Solutions.

The new division, which is headquartered in Westborough, Mass., 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 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," says Bud Collins, president of A123 Energy Solutions.
