Oakridge Corporate Headquarters

February 26, 2016 Melbourne, Florida – Oakridge Global Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: “OGES”) is excited to announce that IST Co. Ltd in Tokyo, Japan has joined Oakridge as battery technology consultants to ensure that Oakridge remains technologically state-of-the-art.

IST Co., Ltd. in Japan has a broad relationship with Electric Power companies, Energy companies, and Energy Technology companies including, but not limited to, all major Japanese lithium ion battery and material companies. These companies have developed materials and products for the next generation of lithium ion batteries. IST also has a broad relationship with University and Research organizations worldwide such as Tokyo Institute of Technology, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, Zürich. IST will help to provide Oakridge with ongoing access to joint technology development opportunities for next generation rechargeable lithium batteries such as lithium air, lithium–sulfur, nano-silicone, and graphene negative electrodes in addition to assisting in the commercialization of the Thin Film Solid State lithium battery technology which Oakridge has already successfully developed.

The IST team joins the current Oakridge Global Energy Solutions advising team in Japan helping Oakridge establish a significant presence in Japan by way of collaboration with major Japanese technical universities and other research facilities, materials suppliers, and state-of-the-art lithium ion manufacturing equipment suppliers. Oakridge will use its previously established subsidiary in Hong Kong for these purposes.

“We at Oakridge regard our relationship with Japan as highly important because of its technical prowess and also because it is a very strong ally to the United States and Australia which will be vitally important in the increasingly tumultuous international geopolitical situation,” said Oakridge Executive Chairman and CEO, Steve Barber. “We are excited to be working with the high caliber of people and companies that we have had the pleasure to meet in the Japanese lithium ion battery market. Our goal is to continue to provide cutting edge technology, the highest quality and reliability, and affordable pricing to our customers. Having quality advisors and consultants like IST and its team enhance our ability to maintain our high standards of technological advancement and demonstrates our commitment to continuing innovate and improve Oakridge’s product offerings so as to provide our customers with the latest technology in high power battery and portable energy systems.”

Oakridge is working with the highest quality Japanese equipment manufacturers in continuing the growth of its facilities in the US. These manufacturers are providing leading edge equipment that will enable us to continue to produce state of the art high power lithium ion batteries for our customers.

“We are all about latest technology and products at Oakridge. Oakridge is the battery company that has the talent and technology to overcome the competition in the design and manufacturing of high performance battery systems. With IST complementing the existing Oakridge advising team in Japan we have now greatly expanded our presence and relationship with Japan, while at the same time providing a much higher quality of equipment and raw materials for building our battery systems,” adds Mr. Barber.
