A123 Batteries at the New York auto show

David Vieau, President and CEO of A123Systems and Lou Rhodes, Vice President-Advanced Vehicle Engineering and President of ENVI sat down with me at the 2009 New York auto show to talk batteries & Chrysler hybrids.

Vieau has worked with Argonne National Labs, so he had some insight. Vieau also talked about what he would like to see the Department of Energy (DOE) do with the $10 billion they are going to get to administer the advanced technology money.
