Powering the Future: NREL Research Finds Opportunities for Breakthrough Battery Designs

Using ultramodern capabilities and world-class laboratory facilities, NREL's energy storage researchers continue to push battery boundaries with materials development, thermal management, diagnostics, and modeling.

Lithium-Ion Batteries & Cold Weather

When temperatures dip below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the efficiency of a battery and the usable capacity that it has are both reduced by as much as 20 to 30 percent compared to when the temperatures are over 32 degrees.

Electric Vehicle Battery Innovation Predictions (2023)

With so much legislative emphasis being placed on the electric vehicle industry, Dr. Michelle Tokarz - VP of Partnerships and Innovation at The Coretec Group, discusses her thoughts and predictions on the direction she believes the EV battery industry will take in 2023.

The Only Battery That Can Survive a Bullet? Nanotech Energy Shoots for Unprecedented Safety Performance

A Nanotech Graphene-Powered Lithium-Ion Battery 18650 cell was shot by a 4.5BRA bullet at a speed of 2,917 feet per second. Despite the ferocious force of impact, the battery did not catch fire and even still held a charge.

Key milestone for LiNa Energy as it successfully demonstrates its sodium-ion technology for battery energy storage systems

LiNa Energy passed a key milestone after it successfully completed an independent demonstration of its lithium-free energy storage systems (made up of its sodium batteries) with commercial partner ion Ventures.

Operating Principles for Lead Acid Batteries

GEL, AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat), and Flooded batteries are all lead-acid batteries. The primary difference is how the electrolyte is handled. Each type of battery has its own optimal charging characteristics.

Green Autonomous Communities - Yucatán, Mexico

Focusing solely on affordable off-grid installations, their goal is to provide sustainable, inclusive and reliable clean energy solutions to improve the lives of 1 million Mexican residents by 2025.

'Freeze-Thaw Battery' Is Adept at Preserving Its Energy

The development of the "freeze-thaw battery," which freezes its energy for use later, is a step toward batteries that can be used for seasonal storage: saving energy in one season, such as the spring, and spending it in another, like autumn.

Battery Recycling Can Lead to a Better Future for Energy Resources

Various business sectors and local and federal government agencies are increasingly looking to lead batteries as a vital energy resource. Lead-acid batteries are nearly 100-percent recycled in a closed-loop system and represent a sustainable resource.

Understanding the Chemistries of Deep-Cycle Batteries

Advancements in battery chemistry and design have allowed deep-cycle batteries to deliver longer cycle life and higher capacity and cycle-up to full rated capacity faster than previous designs.

Lead Batteries Will Help Power the Future

Compared to newer battery technologies, lead batteries are inexpensive to manufacture. According to the Department of Energy, lead batteries have a lower capital cost of $260 per kilowatt hour (kWh) compared to lithium at $271 per kWh.

With The Right Storage Solution, Energy Freedom Begins at Home

Franklin Whole Home has entered the residential energy-storage market with an eye to moving homeowners beyond energy security toward true energy freedom.

Environment Preservation & Other Outstanding Benefits of Battery Recycling

Millions of batteries with their hazardous components get dumped in landfills all over the world. Most of these batteries are never properly disposed of and recycled. Battery recycling is the solution to this problem.

Electric Vehicles' Unsustainable Little Secret - Batteries Are the Weak Link in the Sustainability Chain

Typically made from raw materials including cobalt, nickel and manganese, lithium-ion batteries are extremely expensive to produce and require high levels of mining activity.

The Race to Dominate the EV Market - Does Size Really Matter?

Gigafactories have several advantages over smaller facilities. They can eliminate some of the risks of complex supply chains, they are built with sustainability in mind from day one and they spur economic growth by creating employment opportunities for thousands of people.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

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.
