Mainland France's largest grid battery storage facility

Mainland France's largest grid battery storage facility

When completed, it will be the largest power storage unit connected directly to the grid in mainland France. With a 6 MW / 6 MWh power rating, the unit will use its storage capacity to perform frequency regulation services for the grid, helping keep any frequency deviation in check.

The future of wearable technology? You're already wearing it

The future of wearable technology? You're already wearing it

A new technology uses textiles as battery cells, which significantly improves the amount of energy that can be stored, meaning that the new battery could potentially power an object as energy intensive as a laptop or smartphone.The technology enables the use of smaller battery cells, allowing for larger capacities.

Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Better batteries for a greater range of electric vehicles - this is the goal of the "EMBATT-goes-FAB" project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For that reason, the four project partners thyssenkrupp System Engineering GmbH, IAV GmbH, Daimler AG and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS are developing bipolar batteries and processes for their fabrication.

Fabric alternative to batteries

Fabric alternative to batteries

A major factor holding back development of wearable biosensors for health monitoring is the lack of a lightweight, long-lasting power supply. Now scientists report that they have developed a method for making a charge-storing system that is easily integrated into clothing for "embroidering a charge-storing pattern onto any garment."
