Why This Overlooked Li-Ion Battery Component is So Crucial

Nickel’s major advantage in battery applications is that it delivers a higher energy density and greater storage capacity at a lower cost than other metals. In li-ion battery production, there are two types of cathode chemistries dependent on this material.

Nobel Prize Winning Inventor of the Lithium-ion Battery Has His Eyes Set on the Next Big Breakthrough in Energy Storage

While heading the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford University nearly 40 years ago, he discovered the feasibility of lithium cobalt oxide as a cathode material, which enabled the commercialization of the first rechargeable lithium-ion battery by the Sony Corporation.

Fuel Cell Companies Expanding Reach with New Products and Broader Vision

As we celebrate National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8th, it seems appropriate to take a look back over some of the new products introduced over the last year that have helped enforce the impact and potential fuel cell and hydrogen technologies can make on the worl

Solar Power International Trade Show 2020

The virtual micro-conferences will be live and on-demand. They will cover Regulatory Innovation and Policy Drivers, Renewable Energy Finance and Development, Asset Management and Managing Growth, Deploying Energy Storage, Grid Integration, and the EV Connection.

Renewable Energy for Wildfire Management

As the climate crisis gets worse, so do wildfires. These fires occur in instances of drought and increased temperatures — two consequences of global warming. Therefore, the climate crisis increases the frequency, severity and intensity of these fires.

What Is Preventing Some Countries From Making the Switch to 100% Renewables?

The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.

Priming the Pump: Recent Design Breakthrough Can Spur Advances in Solar-Driven Lasers

Scientists in Japan develop a fully planar device that converts sunlight into a laser beam, which can efficiently power hydrogen fuel generators.
