Fisker Inc.'s Scientists File Patents on Superior Energy Density Tech, Shattering Conventional Thought on EV Range and Charge Times
Fisker's 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 Fisker's 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.
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.
A guide to maximizing production and profit with a DC converter.
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,"
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 biggest change impacting energy infrastructure around the world is the growth of renewable energy resources, including distributed sources such as solar photovoltaics. At the transmission level, the result of this expansion will mean that electrical grids will take on an increasingly important role in balancing power flows across broader regions, with faster and more dynamic power exchanges taking place during fast solar transition times such as sunrises and sunsets.
Brian Spaen for GreenMatters: Visions include the sun powering large landscapes of solar panels, and the electrical grid will also be powered by wind turbines. All of this is, along with "whole new kinds of energy the world has yet to hear of," is expected to power the gigantic metropolis.
Our strategy is to look at complete system and plant design - so everything to do with electrification, grid integration and connection, exceptionally also extends to the panels themselves - to provide one integrated package to customers to optimize overall plant design for cost-efficiency, and financial services as the project enabler.
Solid Power is developing the next-generation of all solid-state rechargeable batteries. Our materials platform is centered around our solid electrolyte, which takes the place of both the separator and traditional liquid electrolyte in our cells.
BBC: Renewable energy entrepreneur Elon Musk says he could rebuild Puerto Rico's shattered electrical infrastructure with his solar energy technology.
Utilities' commercial and operational infrastructures are fast evolving. There is broad agreement that the Internet of Things (IoT) and digitization are altering the competitive landscape in significant ways.
Tina Casey for CleanTechnica: Bijel is short for "bicontinuous jammed emulsion gels." If that sounds somewhat mysterious, it's really not. You can almost DIY your own bijel right at the dinner table. Here's the explainer from Berkeley Lab:
Instead of thinking in old world terms like Operational and Business support applications and systems, the era of Digital Support Systems powered by Smart Data has arrived. Achieving profitable transformation and commercial success depends on providing the right answers.
Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes: The SRUSD will be able to cut energy costs (during some months, as much as 70-80% of the district's electricity needs will be met by the systems).

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
