Walt Mills for Phys.org: The energy-storage goal of a polymer dielectric material with high energy density, high power density and excellent charge-discharge efficiency for electric and hybrid vehicle use has been achieved by a team of Penn State materials scientists. The key is a unique three-dimensional sandwich-like structure that protects the dense electric field in the polymer/ceramic composite from dielectric breakdown. Their results are published today (Aug. 22) in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). "Polymers are ideal for energy storage for transportation due to their light weight, scalability and high dielectric strength," says Qing Wang, professor of materials science and engineering and the team leader. "However, the existing commercial polymer used in hybrid and electric vehicles, called BOPP, cannot stand up to the high operating temperatures without considerable additional cooling equipment. This adds to the weight and expense of the vehicles." Cont'd...

Cat Distasio for inhabitat: Many countries are on the brink of becoming self-sufficient in their clean energy production, thanks to advances in battery technology that allow electricity from renewable sources to be stored and used on demand. Over the years, as renewable energy generation methods have charged forward, utility companies have struggled with how to integrate that clean energy in usable ways. Now, scientists at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, the Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge labs, and other agencies are working on energy storage projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, with their sights set on what the department calls the ‘holy grail’ of energy policy. The department says the industry could be transformed in as little as five to ten years. Earlier this year, Advanced Research Projects-Energy (ARPA-E), the division of the U.S. Department of Energy founded in 2009 to oversee these projects, claimed to have achieved that goal. Without pointing to a specific invention or discovery, ARPA-E insists that the solution lies amid the 75 projects the agency is funding. The breakthrough technology—the next generation of renewable energystorage—is expected to be developed for large-scale usage in as little as five to ten years. Cont'd...

Energy Acuity's 2015 Wind Energy Report Examines New Operating Capacity, Wind Energy Projects, and the Top Developers Involved.
Global panels are recorded at new lows as evidence of uneven supply and demand in the biggest solar market fuels pessimism that it continues to deteriorate the oversupply further by way of additional capacity and the demand weakness by the restricted FIT policy. Nevertheless, the drop of solar panel prices this week is more tenderly this week due to the limited declines in the Chinese and Indian markets. As 2nd tier Chinese module makers have dominated the prices disruption in China, India, and the emerging countries, where no punitive tariffs were enforced, the module prices have slumped more than 5% in the past three weeks. The flexibility for Chinese module makers to offer slashed prices has become less after the sharp fall, resulting the solar panel prices in China and India decline more slightly this week.
