Powering Robots with Biomorphic Batteries

Powering Robots with Biomorphic Batteries

A new rechargeable zinc battery can provide much more energy and integrate into the structure of a robot like biological fat reserves store energy in animals. This approach to increasing capacity will be particularly important as robots shrink to the microscale and below—scales at which current stand-alone batteries are too big and inefficient.

How much lower can Li-ion prices go?

How much lower can Li-ion prices go?

Li-ion cost declines have stemmed primarily from improvements to manufacturing, plant utilisation, Li-ion chemistry and increasing economies of scale with demand for Li-ion batteries increasing by nearly an order of magnitude over the past 10 years.

The Killer Application for Microgrids

The Killer Application for Microgrids

The defining feature of a microgrid is that it can work independently of a national grid. It is not that it does do that. Many are connected to national grids, providing redundancy and balancing. That defining feature is that it can be "islanded" as they call it.

Why Large Lithium-Ion Capacitors LIC Now Gain Major Orders

Lithium-ion capacitors are typically devices with one Li-ion battery electrode and one supercapacitor electrode, both swimming in a lithium-ion battery electrolyte. Usually Asymmetric Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors AEDLC, they were first commercialised in 1999, the year IDTechEx was founded.
