Lithium-ion batteries are the only technology that can meet the performance requirements for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. However, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is rising far quicker than investments in the raw materials required to produce them.
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 world.
New energy storage system estimated to be less than a quarter of the cost of most battery storage units and weighs nearly 70 percent less.
The 2019 photovoltaic energy sector saw unprecedented growth, so much it accounted for nearly 40% of new capacity across all electric power production markets that year. 2019 installations were up 15% from the previous year.
Battery electric cars catered for 4.7 per cent of all new car sales in July, something industry experts expect to continue well into the remainder of 2020.
Surging popularity of renewable energy sources like wind and solar along with growing electrification initiatives across rural sectors might accelerate the adoption of off-grid services.
There have been debates regarding the pollution caused during the manufacturing of batteries for Electric Vehicles. For instance, some studies seem to suggest that the life-cycle emissions (including battery manufacturing) of an electric vehicle barely helps in reducing carbon emissions.
Spanning a planned area of 3,000 acres (2 million square metres), it has five cutting-edge workshops including stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, and battery pack production.
Coupled with StarPower's power module technology, the use of Cree's silicon carbide-based MOSFET in the powertrain will help extend driving range while lowering weight and conserving space.
Steve Higgins, Technical Services Manager at Rolls Battery highlights some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to proper maintenance and service of lead acid batteries.
Sales of electric passenger vehicles are forecast to fall 18% in 2020, to 1.7 million worldwide - with the coronavirus crisis interrupting ten successive years of strong growth.
Span Raises $10.2 Million for Reinvention of Home Electrical Panel to Optimize Solar, Energy Storage, and Electric Vehicle Charging
Span's smart panel brings greater resiliency to homes with increased flexibility when the power goes out and real-time energy monitoring plus controls
The increase in renewable energy homes and small businesses began as a way to lower power usage costs, but with more people sequestered in one place using electrical accessories, battery storage systems can suffer if they are not purposely built for energy storage use.
One of the main characteristics of this technology is the decoupled energy and power capacity. In fact, while the energy is stored in the electroactive species present in the electrolyte.
If it's not green, it's not millennial--and that's a big problem for a company like Uber, or Lyft. Millennials love ride-sharing, but they don't appreciate the CO2 footprint that comes with it.

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
