Ensurge is a Winner in Phase One of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Microbattery Design Competition
Contest Aims to Advance Innovative New Microbattery Designs and Accelerate Their Commercialization and Integration into Existing Clean Energy Manufacturing Technologies
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ensurge Micropower (OSE: ENSU, and OTCQB: ENMPY) (“Ensurge” or the “Company”), today announces it has been named one of the winners in the first phase of the U.S. DOE Microbattery Design Prize competition. The company now enters the second of the DOE’s two-phase program, which features a total prize pool of $1.1 million in awards including federal funding.
“We are extremely pleased that the DOE has chosen our microbattery as one of the industry’s leading design architectures,” said Arvind Kamath, Executive Vice President of Technology at Ensurge. “This recognition is a testament to our innovation as well as our engineering team’s hard work in close collaboration with lead customers through successive stages of technology performance testing and evaluation. It also reinforces the strong market and strategic need for this class of microbattery.”
The DOE competition is focused on improving battery performance, safety, and recyclability to support a new era of small, wireless electronic devices used in smart homes, factories, farms, and cities. It also aims to close existing gaps in the microelectronics and energy storage supply chains, which will strengthen both U.S. manufacturing competitiveness abroad and domestic end-to-end supply chains for these technologies.
“This award will significantly elevate the visibility of Ensurge´s battery technology among both private and public financing sources as the company transitions from development to customer deliveries and production scale-up,” said Lars Eikeland, CEO at Ensurge. “The DOE award is yet another important validation of our technology following last month’s recognition by the American Chemical Society, which published a perspective paper describing our solid-state lithium thin-film battery in its prestigious ACS Energy Letters journal. These independent acknowledgements underscore our technology’s value and how crucial its benefits will be for overcoming the limitations of current battery technology so that our customers can launch new waves of innovative products.”
The eight projects in the first phase of the DOE competition were selected based on a review of technical designs and schematics for microbatteries that serve a specific application and deliver performance beyond what is commercially available. Each of the winners was awarded a $75,000 cash prize plus testing services with DOE National Laboratories, and can advance to Phase Two where their prototypes will be evaluated for performance, safety and manufacturing readiness. Learn more about the selected projects here. A winner and two runners up will be selected.
“Microbatteries are becoming more and more crucial for clean energy manufacturing scale-up and smart technology innovation,” said Jeff Marootian, the DOE’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. “As our nation rapidly transitions to a clean energy future, the ability for us to domestically produce a wide range of microbatteries is going to be hugely important for achieving the Biden-Harris Administration’s clean energy goals of achieving 100% clean electricity by 2035 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
The Microbattery Design Prize is led by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office and managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

75% Load Factor, 42% increase in passenger numbers and demand picking up7.12.2023 17:50:00 CET | Press release
75% Load Factor, 42% increase in passenger numbers and demand picking up PLAY airlines carried 107,236 passengers in November, which is a 42% increase from November 2022 when PLAY carried 75,396 passengers. The load factor in November 2023 was 74.5%, down from 79% last year. This decline in load factor is a direct result of the seismic activity in the Reykjanes Peninsula and resulting global news coverage of a possible volcanic eruption that could disrupt aviation. This situation impacted last-minute bookings in the month. PLAY had an on-time performance of 88.9% in November 2023. Despite the decline in load factor in November we continued to see year-on-year growth in our unit revenue (RASK), even with a 54% growth in available seat kilometers (ASK).Average ancillary revenue continues to rise for PLAY, being 30% higher in November 2023 compared to November 2022, and the trend is looking strong for the coming months. Of all passengers flying with PLAY in November 2023, 26.2% were depar
