If you were looking to nominate a particular technology as the most influential of the early 21st century, batteries would be a logical choice. Cheap, compact batteries made smartphones and mobile computing possible, and larger and more powerful batteries represent the enabling technology behind electric mobility, renewable energy, and the smart grid
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) Motorists can save as much as $14,500 on fuel costs over 15 years by driving an electric vehicle instead of a similar one fueled by gasoline, according to a new analysis conducted by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Idaho National Laboratory (INL).
Researchers have designed a new electrolyte for lithium metal batteries that could increase the driving range of electric cars.
For EV drivers, every new support system, every new facility, and especially those fast charging stations with enough charging ports for each EV driver pulling up to charge, are immensely appreciated. That first sigh of relief — “Oh, I found you” — quickly followed by, “and you’re working!” If you’re in luck, that’s followed by, “You’re are working fast!” A new partnership will bring about that series of responses to many more people
(Brown University) By combining a ceramic material with graphene, Brown University engineers have made what they say is the toughest solid electrolyte built to date.
Satellites are almost always illuminated by the sun, apart from short transitions to Earth’s shadow. The light that a satellite reflects can help reveal the solution to a structural malfunction.
Workplace charging has long been touted as one of the keys to electric vehicle adoption, particularly in major urban and suburban office markets. But as potentially millions of office workers continue to permanently work from home a majority of the time after stay-at-home orders are rescinded, how might this impact the role of workplace charging in the coming years
In this episode of our CleanTech Talk podcast interview series, Zach Shahan sits down to talk with Alf Poor, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ideanomics, Inc., about electric vehicle charging
Used Electric Car Batteries Could Be Recycled into New Life as Energy Storage for Solar Farms, Says New Study
The MIT researchers say that the average used car battery could provide up to a decade of backup storage for solar grids.
