A new approach to analyzing and designing new ion conductors - a key component of rechargeable batteries - could accelerate the development of high-energy lithium batteries, and possibly other energy storage and delivery devices such as fuel cells, researchers say.
Soteria Forms Consortium to Promote New Architecture for Mass Production of Safe Lithium Ion Batteries
"This technology is too important for us to keep to ourselves and rely on our own capabilities to bring to market. Instead, we will allow broad access through the normal lithium ion and automotive supply chain," said Brian Morin, co-Founder and CEO of Soteria.
Renault is trying to create a 'smart electric island' with electric vehicles, V2G, and energy storage
Fred Lambert for Electrek: They are partnering with energy supplier Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira partner to "facilitate the energy transition" in Porto Santo island, Portugal.
Graphite has been the default choice of active material for anodes in lithium-ion batteries since their original launch by Sony but researchers and manufacturers have long sought a way to replace graphite with silicon, as it is an abundantly available element with ten times
Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is a method of converting heat to electricity using infrared light as an intermediary. Combustion heats an emitter to incandescence and the resulting thermal radiation is converted to electricity by a photovoltaic cell.
Kyree Leary for Futurism: Eco Marine Power has announced plans to test their patented solar sails next year. These EnergySails would utilize solar and wind energy simultaneously.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: SmartWire is part of an industry wide remaking of 'busbars.' In order to squeeze greater efficiency from the same limited rooftop space, an evolution on the front side of the solar panel has been sped up.
This article examines the hidden power-loss case study data from a utility scale array. The role of string-level monitoring in identifying hidden power losses and its use as a tool in maintaining a high-level PV array operational reliability will be discussed.
Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Electrochaea has also figured out a way to power the whole enterprise with the excess green energy produced during particularly sunny and windy days that otherwise would have gone to waste, because there would have been no way to store it.
Phys.org: A new 'double-glazing' solar power device - which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics - has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.
Rhett Alain for Wired: How much power and how much energy (those are two different things) could you get from solar panels on the trailer?
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The ultra-environmentalist solar installation is seemingly 7-8% efficient, weighs 1/10th the weight of a standard solar panel and is held to the roof via an adhesive sticker on the backside of the panel.
Bonnie Christian for Wired: At this year's WIRED Energy conference, some of the sector's most innovative early-stage companies pitched their ideas.
Dom Galeon for Futurism: Together with MIT, Italian carmaker Lamborghini developed a new electric supercar that can also store energy. With supercapacitors instead of batteries, the Terzo Millennio is able to carry more power, which it can store in its carbon fiber body.
