CAM Integrated Solutions | February 03, 2023
On February 2, 2023, CAM Integrated Solutions, LLC, announced its partnership with Amp Americas, a renewable natural gas (RNG) leader that produces carbon-negative fuels and feedstocks from dairy farm waste. CAM will deliver engineering support for several Amp Americas RNG production development projects, including one of the biggest animal waste-to-RNG projects to date, as well as micro plants to make RNG viable for smaller dairy farms, as part of the partnership.
Amp Americas operates and owns one of the country's most extensive portfolios of ultra-low carbon intensity RNG facilities. The company anticipates producing approximately 12-million-gallon equivalents of RNG and generating nine million kilowatt-hours of electricity in 2023.
CAM understands the changing energy market and brings a lean 'midstream mentality' to the next generation of energy. Amp Americas has benefited from CAM's wide range of fully integrated service offerings over the past year, and it will continue to provide comprehensive project delivery services as the companies advance the renewable industry.
Craig Pierrotti, CEO of CAM, states, "Our partnership was founded on both aligned core values and a joint mission to support the transition to renewable energy. We are eager to support Amp as they continue to pave the way in the RNG space."

Amprius Technologies, Inc. a leader in next-generation lithium-ion batteries with its Silicon Anode Platform, is once again raising the bar with the verification of its lithium-ion cell delivering unprecedented energy density of 500 Wh/kg, 1300 Wh/L, resulting in unparalleled run time. At approximately half the weight and volume of state-of-the-art, commercially available lithium-ion cells, the all-new battery cell delivers potential industry-disrupting performance with barrier breaking discharge times. Amprius’ next-generation cells are well positioned to power products in the fast-growing aviation and, eventually, electric vehicles markets, estimated to be collectively over $100 billion in battery demand by 2025.
“These cells provide a run time of 200% compared to state-of-the-art graphite cells, while being lighter and smaller than other batteries with the same energy content,” said Jon Bornstein, President of Amprius Lab. “This latest validation continues Amprius’ track record of producing the world’s most powerful battery cells and sets an industry benchmark for next-generation battery technology that will ultimately revolutionize how high we fly, how far we travel and how long we can use our devices.”
The 500 Wh/kg battery platform significantly expands boundaries for customers and is a tailored solution for applications that require maximum discharge times without compromising key features such as aircraft payload and without having to increase vehicle weight. The new batteries demonstrate both high gravimetric energy density (Wh/kg) and volumetric energy density (Wh/L) with exceptional adaptability. The customizable platform allows customers to select the option to either increase energy content in a battery pack without increasing weight, reduce weight in applications that target a fixed energy content, or combinations of both. Higher energy is important for longer run times, range and endurance, while lighter packs increase energy efficiency – even for the same battery energy content.
“We look forward to taking advantage of Amprius’ 500 Wh/kg cell to further develop Zephyr’s unrivalled stratospheric endurance capabilities,” said Pierre-Antoine Aubourg, Chief Technical Officer at AALTO HAPS, the Airbus subsidiary developing the 100% solar-electric High Altitude Platform Station for connectivity and earth observation applications. “Amprius is a valued current supplier with a great track-record, and we are confident that Amprius’ battery will deliver the capability we need.”
The record 500 Wh/kg energy density performance was verified by Mobile Power Solutions, a leading testing house offering comprehensive battery regulatory compliance, safety, and performance testing. The results indicate that this cell model provides >504 Wh/kg and >1321 Wh/l at 25°C.
About Amprius Technologies, Inc.
Amprius Technologies, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high-energy and high-power lithium-ion batteries producing the industry’s highest energy density cells. The Company’s corporate headquarters is in Fremont, California where it maintains an R&D lab and a pilot manufacturing facility for the fabrication of silicon nanowire anodes and cells. To serve significant customer demand for its high-performance silicon anode lithium-ion batteries, Amprius recently signed a letter of intent for an approximately 774,000 square foot facility in Brighton, Colorado that initially provides a potential of up to 5 gigawatt-hours (GWh) manufacturing capacity.
Amprius’ commercially available batteries deliver up to 450 Wh/kg and 1,150 Wh/L, the industry’s highest known energy density cells available on the market today. Based on Amprius’ current level of battery performance and pilot production, the Company will be able to use its proprietary anode technology to deliver battery cells that contain energy density levels that approach 2x the performance of current commercially available graphite cells.

Enel | February 09, 2023
Enel North America, a prominent North American sustainable energy firm, built 1.98 gigawatts (GW) of wind, solar, and battery storage capacity throughout the United States and Canada in 2022. Additionally, in 2022, the business built about 550 MW of new demand response capacity and have 119 MW of distributed energy storage deployed or under contract.
Enel Green Power, Enel's renewables company, finished 2022 with numerous new clean power facilities in North America, including the 250 MW 25 Mile Creek wind project in Oklahoma, the 270 MW Blue Jay solar project in Texas, and others. The Blue Jay project also includes a paired battery storage facility, which is scheduled to open in 2023. Approximately the year, Enel added over 5.2 GW of additional renewable capacity worldwide.
Enel signed around 630 MW worth of power purchase agreements (PPAs) in 2022, including arrangements with Campbell Soup Company, McDonald's, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and five members of its North America Logistics Council, among others. In addition, Enel inked virtual power purchase agreements (VPPAs) in late 2022 with Verizon for a 100 MW share of the wind farm's production and MathWorks for an 11 MW component to support the 25 Mile Creek wind project. Previously, The Clorox Company signed a VPPA for 47 MW of the project.
As the need for clean energy develops, Enel continues to invest strategically in developing North American energy resources. At the company's annual Capital Markets Day demonstration to investors in November 2022, Enel announced plans to invest approximately $5 billion in the North American market between 2022 and 2025 to develop around 5 GW of new utility-scale renewable and battery energy storage capacity. In addition, by 2025, Enel plans to construct 155 MW of distributed energy storage and 475 000 charging connections.
