Refillable’ technology could provide enough energy to drive an electric car up to 3,000 miles

11-Feb-2019

A new type of electric vehicle power using “refillable” technology has taken another giant leap in advancing alternative energy with testing that shows it could provide enough energy to run a car for about 3,000 miles. The technology employs a novel type of “flow” battery that is being ...

For a longer battery life: Pushing lithium ion batteries to the next performance level

Chemists develop new anode material

17-Dec-2018

Conventional lithium ion batteries, such as those widely used in smartphones and notebooks, have reached performance limits. Materials chemist Freddy Kleitz from the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Vienna and international scientists have developed a new nanostructured anode material ...

A stabilizing influence enables lithium-sulfur battery evolution

Stable cathode and five-second fabrication technique could boost adoption of Li-S batteries

19-Oct-2018

In late July of 2008 a British solar plane set an unofficial flight-endurance record by remaining aloft for more than three days straight. Lithium-sulfur batteries emerged as one of the great technological advances that enabled the flight -powering the plane overnight with efficiency unmatched by ...

Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

It’s All in the Mix

21-Aug-2018

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have ...

Liquid battery could lead to flexible energy storage

15-Aug-2018

A new type of energy storage system could revolutionise energy storage and drop the charging time of electric cars from hours to seconds. In a new paper, chemists from the University of Glasgow discuss how they developed a flow battery system using a nano-molecule that can store electric power ...

New nitrogen compounds open up new possibilities for energy storage

06-Aug-2018

An international team of researchers led by scientists at the University of Bayreuth has for the first time produced chemical compounds containing polymeric chains composed solely of nitrogen atoms. Such nitrides have an unusually high energy density and thus open up completely new prospects for ...

A smart safe rechargeable zinc ion battery based on sol-gel transition electrolytes

23-Jul-2018

The thermal runaway issue has been a long-standing obstacle impeding the development of high energy density and high power delivery batteries. These batteries would generate a lot of heat in ultrafast charge/discharge process or hazardous conditions, such as overcharging and short-circuit. To ...

Nickel ferrite promotes capacity and cycle stability of lithium-sulfur battery

15-Jun-2018

Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery can be put into practice, if 20% of theoretical energy densities (2600 Wh/kg or 2800 Wh/L) can be achieved. Investigators have the ambition to reach the energy density of 500 Wh/kg in the near future. Xue-Ping Gao and co-workers, from Nankai University, tell us "Till ...

Thin film converts heat from electronics into energy

19-Apr-2018

Nearly 70 percent of the energy produced in the United States each year is wasted as heat. Much of that heat is less than 100 degrees Celsius and emanates from things like computers, cars or large industrial processes. Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a ...

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

13-Apr-2018

Lithium-based batteries use more than 50 percent of all cobalt produced in the world. These batteries are in your cell phone, laptop and maybe even your car. About 50 percent of the world's cobalt comes from the Congo, where it's largely mined by hand, in some instances by children. But now, a ...
