Johnny Lieu for Mashable: Researchers at the University of Newcastle in Australia are testing solar cells that use electronic inks printed on plastic film to conduct electricity.
Jessica Twentyman for Internet of Business: Automaker Renault is partnering with UK-based smart home energy storage specialist Powervault in a deal that will see batteries previously used to power electric vehicles (EVs) redeployed to store solar power in homes.
Meeting the rapid increase in demand from EVs is a challenge for many of the largest utilities in the country. It's inevitable. And it can be met with the right technology and planning.
Although it requires the hydrogen handling infrastructure to be set up, the use of fuel cell systems in reversing mode for alternating power storage and power generation within a unique system boundary is a readily available engineering solution to the issues currently connected with distributed energy management.
Rolls is excited to announce the expansion of our 5000 Series range with the launch of select premium models with enhanced charge performance and added capacity. With improved charge efficiency at lower voltages, these models require shorter recharge times which is especially beneficial in off-grid renewable energy applications.
A certain creatively charged atmosphere is generated by people hanging out and charging their phones-it's an environment that can create a market opportunity for public-space owners who want to attract people to linger at their sites.
We will be providing more information on our newest addition to our product line, the DSS® distributed storage solution, which is designed for commercial and industrial customers seeking to take control of their electricity usage and costs.
