GM won a rare win last week in terms of CleanTechnica views. The most popular story of the week was one about GM potentially having a million-mile battery and EVs with 60 miles of range at some point. It’s a target. Otherwise, Tesla took the next two spots on the podium
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.
It’s all about those batteries, ’bout those batteries, ’bout those batteries. The electric car market is influenced by aesthetics, aerodynamics, tech efficiency, semi-autonomous and infotainment features, and more. However, it seems no single element is more important than the batteries
Strata Solar announced this week it has completed the pre-construction development work on one of the largest stationary energy storage facilities in the US . The new 100-megawatt, 400-megawatt-hour facility will be installed in Ventura County
What factors will influence Tesla’s profitability during COVID-
Vanadium redox flow batteries in Saudi Arabia. Gravity energy storage in Scotland. The search for low cost, long duration energy storage continues.
(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Researchers at the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have come a step closer to making a viable, high-output battery based on magnesium (Mg), an element the United States Geological Survey reports is far more abundant than lithium.
At the moment, we have had over a quarter million deaths due to covid-19. This death toll will continue to rise until the virus infects everyone and causes millions of deaths, or until we defeat it, either by social distancing and contact tracing, a vaccine, a treatment, or whatever tools we employ, including new technologies. I am personally fascinated by the potential of covid-sniffing dogs
Tesla Cybertruck Production Possibly Pulled Forward, Elon Musk’s Tesla Timelines More Nuanced Than Typically Assumed
For years, a chorus of naysayers leveled criticism against Tesla’s Elon Musk for missing deadlines. And during the company’s recent Q1 earnings call, Elon Musk admitted, “Punctuality is not my strong suit, but I always come through in the end
