In addition, the government subsidies need to continue and companies like PEVE
are going to have to learn how to make the batteries less expensive.
Cobasys recently announced it has granted additional royalty-bearing license rights to Panasonic EV Energy (PEVE), a joint venture between Matsushita Electric Industrial Company, Ltd.
According to Cobasys, the expanded rights will permit PEVE to solicit and sell nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery products for certain North American transportation applications, with Cobasys receiving royalties on the sales through 2014.
(I am borrowing this idea from Yvon Le Bot's 1997 book Le Peve
zapatiste [The Zapatista Dream], but giving it a slightly different interpretation.) It is a movement freighted with magic, with myths, utopias, poetry, romanticism, enthusiasms, and wild hopes, with "mysticism" (in the sense that Charles Peguy used the word, in opposition to "politics"),(1) and with faith.
(PEVE) announce the launch of the world's first* business to recycle nickel in used hybrid-vehicle nickel-metal-hydride batteries for use in new nickel-metal-hydride batteries.
TMC is also receiving support from PEVE concerning quality assurance in the manufacture of hybrid-vehicle nickel-metal-hydride batteries.
Additionally, the company said COBASYS and PEVE
will cross license each other for current and future patents to avoid possible future litigation, with both companies planning to establish a joint development program to collaborate on the development of next-generation, high-performance NiMH batteries for HEVs.
Further, they are knithes and men "wit gode bowes" (1748) in the bodyguard, become peves
and dogges in the street fight, and then revert back to "sergaunz, pe beste pat mithen gon" (1929).
