$2 million DOE grant for pumped heat electricity storage

$2 million DOE grant for pumped heat electricity storage

Southwest Research Institute has received a $2 million grant from the United States Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy to develop an advanced pumped heat electricity storage (PHES) system. This system offers twice the energy density of a lithium ion battery and is based on an innovative thermodynamic cycle to store energy in hot and cold fluids.

Maximizing the effectiveness of platinum in fuel cells

Maximizing the effectiveness of platinum in fuel cells

Platinum is a precious metal more rare than silver or gold. Renowned in the fuel cell community for its effectiveness in converting hydrogen and oxygen into water and electricity, platinum offers unrivaled activity and stability for electrochemical reactions. But platinum is both scarce and expensive, which means scientists are looking to create practical fuel cell catalysts that use far less of the costly precious metal.

Sun in a box would store renewable energy for the grid

Engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand. The system may be designed to power a small city not just when the sun is up or the wind is high, but around the clock.

A new CO2 - negative energy source as an alternative to coal and oil

Using an existing, operational plant in Austria, NextFuel is introducing a completely new solution to climate change that is CO2 negative, cheap and massively scalable. The NextFuel briquette, made from fast growing elephant grass on marginal land, favorably competes with the rising cost of oil and the price of coal in most markets.
