Fisker Inc.'s Scientists File Patents on Superior Energy Density Tech, Shattering Conventional Thought on EV Range and Charge Times
Fiskers scientists have reached an early breakthrough in solid-state technology. The wider team includes the co-founder of solid-state battery technology pioneer, Sakti3 - a first inventor of the seminal patents. Implications for Fiskers vehicles beyond 2023 - as well as the larger EV industry as a whole - are significant. The patent includes claims over novel materials and manufacturing processes that are critical in achieving the required energy density, power and cost targets that are paramount for the widespread use of electric vehicles.
Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.
With HAS we have combined the controllability of electromechanical actuators with the power density, longer life and resistive force capabilities of traditional hydraulic systems. The resulting hybrid offers robust, long-life tracking solutions for solar power and actuation systems for wind, hydro and other renewable energy systems, as well as fossil fuel applications.
Bonnie Christian for Wired: At this years 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.
Can the electric vehicle (EV) market and power industry mutually benefit from one another?
Industry-wide North American benchmarking study aimed to help operators optimize assets, manage lifecycle costs as equipment ages.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for electrek: Instead of perfectly spacing those 60 out - with small, defined areas between the cells - the company has allowed the solar cells borders to overlap each other while increasing the cell count to 68.
A guide to maximizing production and profit with a DC converter.
Wind energy is now the cheapest form of new generation in many parts of the country making it a good investment for many reasons.
Phys.org: "We are working to create methodologies and technologies that private companies can harness to create wave energy devices that will enable them to sell power to the U.S. grid at a competitive price,"
Kristen Meub for Phys.org: India is interested in developing 1 megawatt or smaller CSP facilities that could provide the appropriate amount of power for a small village or community.
The higher power density of the NeON R delivers more energy and cost savings in space limited situations. In addition to a higher energy output, the N-type cells use almost no boron, significantly reducing Light Induced Degradation.
Grid+ is combining blockchain technology and artificial intelligence to build a software and hardware solution that makes the electrical grid smarter, more resilient, and more economical for consumers. Astreamlined business model enables Grid+ to offer near-wholesale electricity prices instead of the 100% markup that traditional power utilities charge in most states.
Sian Bradley for Wired: "Tables are this big empty space, a surface that's not being used a lot. I saw their potential to be an independent power source, wherever you want to have it,"

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
