NREL Enables Affordable Housing by Expanding Beyond Energy Efficiency

When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."

A New Solid State Battery Surprises the Researchers Who Created It

The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long lasting, and energy dense.

e-Mobility. Battery Pack Manufacturing and Beyond: How 3 Welding Technologies Stack Up

In battery pack manufacturing, the cells are often already assembled and the engineer is challenged with coming up with a design to join them in series and parallel to deliver optimum energy. A typical Li-ion cell is constructed of nickel plated cold rolled steel.

How Forgings Are Paving the Way for the Future of EVs

EVs could have disruptive implications for the future of transportation manufacturing. However, the potential for market disruption also presents a significant opportunity for U.S. manufacturing and the forgings market in particular.

Solving the Carbon dilemma

Beyond moving away from fossil fuels, one of the most promising strategies is trapping carbon and either sequestering it in the ground, or using it for other applications. There are a number of ways this can be done.

Electric Hydrogen Partnership Hopes To Repeat Success With Renewable Hydrogen Technology

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and clean hydrogen company Electric Hydrogen have inked an agreement to develop high-performance electrolyzer components, helping to scale clean hydrogen and invent new opportunities for decarbonization.

Correct Use of Aluminum Core Cables in PV Systems

In PV systems, it is recommended to use copper core AC cables. If you need to use aluminum wires, pay attention to the transition method when connecting aluminum cables to copper wires or equipment with copper terminals.

Post-Pandemic Economic and Development Challenges for Solar

What got us till here may not be sufficient to take us to the finish line. Persistent efforts at an accelerated pace in the right direction is vital to reach decarbonization goals by 2035.

Building Grid Flexibility With Energy Storage

A 30.8 MWh energy storage system (ESS) is under construction for the French transmission grid operator RTE. The site is one of three being established under the RINGO project, which will test large-scale batteries as a way to relieve congestion on the transmission grid.

ENEL BEGINS BAT DETERRENT TRIAL AT SOUTH AFRICAN WIND PLANT

Bat Deterrent Systems were installed on three of the plant's 37 Nordex turbines by Nordex technicians, following remote guidance from NRG's Technical Services team. This is the second trial of NRG's Bat Deterrent System in South Africa.

NREL Pinpoints Method for Moving Larger Wind Turbine Blades Across Country

Manufacturing blades that can bend with "controlled flexing" will allow railroads to ship longer blades around the United States. Because of bends, twists, and turns in railroad lines, the upper limit for transporting single-piece land-based blades by rail is currently 75 meters.

New UBC Bioenergy Facility Set to Pave Way for Carbon-negative Future

A research and demonstration facility aimed at accelerating the development of low-carbon, market-ready bioenergy products and carbon-negative energy systems has opened its doors at the University of British Columbia.

World Energy Storage Day: Fixing Flaws in Li-ion Batteries

IDTechEx have forecasted lithium-ion battery demand to reach over 2500 GWh for electric vehicles alone. However, the uptake of lithium-ion batteries is not without cost - they still present both technological and environmental problems.

Value of PLC Key Switch Monitoring to Keep Critical Systems More Secure

The key switch has become commonplace for automation engineers and technicians who maintain and support these systems and understand the importance of the little switch in overall device operation and affects the underlying process.

Solar Creating Resilience in Disaster-Hit Areas

Environmental engineers developed a solar storage system, creating an abundant energy supply before a storm hits. Instead of directly transferring electricity to local homes, the technology stores energy in shipping containers as green hydrogen.
