How The Energy As A Service (EaaS) Business Model Works

When you partner with an energy as a service company, its expertise is applied to your business specifically. Your EaaS partner delves into all aspects of your current energy supply and management practices and, combining that information with their knowledge of the industry

Microgrid Peer-to-Peer Energy Startups Democratize Power Choices.

Exergy is a microgrid platform located in Brooklyn, supporting peer-to-peer energy contracts between users through blockchain transactions. This type of peer-to-peer economy with blockchain transactions has several advantages over previous solar models.

Gridtential Energy and Crown Battery Build New Silicon Wafer Battery that Combines the Best of Lead and Lithium-ion Performance

Using technology similar to a solar cell, Gridtential Energy's breakthrough Silicon Joule™ technology allows batteries to deliver up to 5X the power density with up to a 40% weight reduction - and it can be manufactured in current lead battery plants.

Using the Earth as a Battery

When you place a zinc anode and a copper cathode in a container of wet mud, the two metals start reacting, because zinc loses electrons easier than copper and because the mud contains ions. By wetting the dirt, it turns into a true electrolyte solution.

Could Predictive Analytics Help Tesla Drop the Cost of the Battery Pack to $100 per kWh?

The battery pack cost of $100/kWh is a primary target for Tesla. To achieve this, the company must solve one of the world's most demanding technology challenges – and it is how to increase the volumetric energy density of battery cells while slashing production costs.

Energy to Go

No matter if it’s a flashlight or a Tesla: They don’t work without a battery. But what is the battery technology of the future? Researchers all over the world are looking for new solutions.

Providing Clean Energy to 7.7 Billion People in <30 Years

On the supply side we need to look at the notion of generate local, consume local. We can begin building micro-grids, or smaller fractal, self-similar grids that are composed into a larger grid infrastructure in economic industrial centers.
