Technology Development to Drive Long-term EV Adoption

The resilience of global electric vehicle (EV) sales during 2020 provided some optimism as to the maturing state of the electric vehicle market. However, sales are still primarily underpinned by government policy, and improvements in cost and performance to Li-ion cells and packs, not to forget other aspects of the vehicle or grid infrastructure, are needed for widespread adoption.

A Single Device can Wirelessly Power Multiple Wearables

A Single Device can Wirelessly Power Multiple Wearables

A major pain point facing the use of wearables is the issue of keeping these devices properly and conveniently powered. As the number of wearables one uses increases, the need to charge multiple batteries rises in tandem, consuming huge amounts of electricity. Many users find it cumbersome to charge numerous devices every day, and inconvenient service disruptions occur when batteries run out.

The Biodegradable Battery

The Biodegradable Battery

The number of data-transmitting microdevices, for instance in packaging and transport logistics, will increase sharply in the coming years. All these devices need energy, but the amount of batteries would have a major impact on the environment. Researchers have developed a biodegradable mini-capacitor that can solve the problem. It consists of carbon, cellulose, glycerin and table salt. And it works reliably.

Short Term Growth Prospects for Renewable Fuels

Short Term Growth Prospects for Renewable Fuels

Limits on the amount of bioethanol and biodiesel that can be blended with conventional fossil fuels mean growth in the consumption of certain biofuels has slowed considerably over the past 5 years. However, with CO2 targets becoming increasingly stringent, and some sectors being difficult to electrify, alternative fuels are likely to still be needed over the coming years.

Lithium Metal Anode For Solid-State Batteries

Lithium Metal Anode For Solid-State Batteries

Graphite has been used as the mainstream anode material for most commercial li-ion batteries. However, the limited specific capacity of graphite indicates current li-ion batteries with graphite anode have gradually reaching their theoretical limit. Replacing graphite with lithium metal anode is an idea considered for a long time. However, due to the uncontrolled dendrite growth, lithium metal anode with organic liquid electrolyte are considered an unstable combination. Now with the development of solid-state battery, solid-state electrolyte has been considered to provide the possibility for the use of lithium metal anode. This article will discuss about the motivations of introducing lithium metal anode, progress, opportunities and challenges.

Better Options for Greening Dirty Power Stations

Better Options for Greening Dirty Power Stations

In cities, old fossil-fuelled power stations are valuable real estate, quickly grabbed for myriad other uses. In 2020, Beloit College in Wisconsin began operating a student union and recreation center in a former coal-burning power generator. On the southern coast of Massachusetts, a former 1,600-megawatt coal plant is being demolished to make way for a logistical port and support center for wind turbines expected to be erected about 35 miles off-shore.
