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.

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.

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.

4 Innovations for a Post-Carbon Transportation System

Before we examine the transportation innovations for a post-carbon country, we must assess the ecologically degrading features of conventional systems.

Understanding Wind Turbine Fire Protection

A whopping 90% or more of wind turbine fires originate in the nacelle. The nacelle contains the gear box, the generator, the controller, the low- and high-speed shafts, and the brake-and it (the nacelle) sits atop the tower.

Green Software - A New Trend for a Better Planet

How to call the wider group of companies which bring to market innovations that could replace existing technologies with more environmental-friendly ones, even if their primary goal doesn't strictly align with the definition of Green Tech?

First Ward Park Combines Air and Sun with Smartflower

The Smartflower is connected to First Ward Park's general electrical system, meaning that the energy it produces will offset park lighting, restrooms, its upcoming Air Quality Learning Station (AQLS), and all other electrical uses.

3 Best-Practice Initiatives to Mitigate Risks of Cyber Attacks

Cybersecurity risks have become a major headache for utilities. Attacks have been escalating in intensity, as well as frequency. Leaders must prioritize these key areas if they are to mitigate the risks of cyberattacks that will surely keep coming.

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Universal

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
