Redox Flow Batteries' Advantages for Stationary Energy Storage Market

Redox Flow Batteries' Advantages for Stationary Energy Storage Market

An increasing number of news articles about "Redox Flow Batteries" are present on the web. This technology, mostly adopted in on-grid and off-grid applications, has been studied for the last 50 years, and it is currently being commercialized (most of the time) in a containerized size, for medium- and large-scale applications.

Battery Chemistry Promises Safer High-Voltage Lithium-Ion Batteries

Battery Chemistry Promises Safer High-Voltage Lithium-Ion Batteries

For the first time, researchers have found a new way to improve lithium-ion batteries. They successfully increased not only the voltage delivery of a lithium-ion battery but also its ability to suppress dangerous conditions that affect the current range of batteries. This improved lithium-ion battery could make longer journeys in electric vehicles possible and lead to the creation of a new generation of home energy storage, both with improved fire safety.

Neural Networks Facilitate Optimization in Search for New Materials

When searching through theoretical lists of possible new materials for particular applications, such as batteries or other energy-related devices, there are often millions of potential materials that could be considered, and multiple criteria that need to be met and optimized at once. Now, researchers have found a way to dramatically streamline the discovery process, using a machine learning system.

Pollution: The Lockdown Effect and the Battery Energy Storage Solution

Pollution: The Lockdown Effect and the Battery Energy Storage Solution

The pandemic infection of COVID-19 has led to the lockdown of a considerable number of cities, leading to reduced pollution activity. With the large number of renewable energy sources employed in the last decades to decarbonise the energy sector, a growing number of energy storage devices have been coupled with renewable energy sources.

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Electrification and autonomy will ultimately dominate the automotive space. Future autonomous electric vehicles (EVs), especially shared autonomous fleets such as robotaxis will have no driver to perform the charging tasks. In that case, how will future autonomous EVs be refuelled? This premium article will provide an overview of charging solutions for autonomous EVs including conductive robotic charging and wireless charging. Alternative solutions such as battery swapping will also be discussed.

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

In 2020 vessel owners have had to deal with an 'emissions control world' for the first time. Unlike most other mobility sectors, which predominantly tend to switch partly or completely to a traction battery in order to meet emissions targets, a mixture of solutions have a role to play for boats and ships.

Tiny Micro Supercapacitor, Ideal for Wearable Devices

Tiny Micro Supercapacitor, Ideal for Wearable Devices

A tiny microsupercapacitor that is as small as the width of a person's fingerprint and can be integrated directly with an electronic chip has been developed. This has attracted major attention as a novel technology to lead the era of Internet of Things since it can be driven independently when applied to individual electronic components.

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

This article concerns production of electricity with zero emissions that is off-grid or capable of being off-grid when needed. That usually means a system that has energy storage and increasingly smart versions, those that manage supply and demand often for multiple loads and/or inputs. However, we also give some coverage to simple-single purpose versions such as a shipping container with a solar panel on it that creates fresh water by self-generated electricity powering desalination.

Microgrid Forecasts: Off-Grid Zero-Emission 2020-2040

In 2020, only modest numbers of zero-emission microgrids were being delivered. On current evidence, we find some certainties. Zero-emission, off grid (including fringe-of-grid) is a trend for many reasons already presented but it is, as yet, a slow trend for reasons discussed within the article.
