Imec doubles energy density of its solid-state batteries

Imec and partner EnergyVille, announces a solid-state Li-metal battery cell with an unsurpassed energy density of 400 Wh/liter at a charging speed of 0.5C (2 hours). Imec also announced that they have started to upscale the materials and processes in a pilot line for fabrication of solid-state pouch cells at the EnergyVille Campus in Genk (Belgium) and is set-up in collaboration with the University of Hasselt.

Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation

Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation

It is easy to say that, although small electric aircraft are at last selling, they are a negligible part of the overall aircraft market. Mistake. They will work up from the bottom to be mainstream. Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce know this, but many others are sleeping through the future. Some of the successes are from small companies.

Tesla Aircraft

Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?

Nexeon and partners funded for new battery materials initiative

Nexeon is leading a new project to optimise coating technology for its silicon material. This approach will result in improved cell performance, and also extend the system compatibility of silicon anode materials, allowing use of lower cost electrolyte formulations and lower overall battery cell costs.

Electric Buses: Chinese Now Win Abroad

Electric Buses: Chinese Now Win Abroad

In the protected Chinese market all the over 400,000 pure electric buses in use are all made in China. The Europeans cannot complain. It is more than a coincidence that all the recent order for 900 pure electric buses in Paris went to French companies and we find a belief that 80% of bus business in Germany is a carve up between two German companies.

An affordable way to store clean energy

Renewable energy sources can fluctuate in the amount of power they are able to provide - which is why batteries are used to temporarily store the energy. The problem with lithium ion batteries is their short service life, while redox flow batteries have, to date, been cost-prohibitive.
