University of Surrey researchers have found a ground-breaking development of technology that could revolutionize the capabilities of appliances that have previously relied on battery power to work. The development could translate into very high energy density supercapacitors making it possible to recharge your mobile phone, laptop or other mobile devices in just a few seconds. […]






A University of Bristol team of physicists and chemists have grown a man-made diamond that when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current. The new technology is a development that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. The development could solve some of the problems of […]






Could a glow-in-the-dark dye be the next advancement in energy storage technology? University at Buffalo scientists think so. They have identified a fluorescent dye called BODIPY as an ideal material for stockpiling energy in rechargeable, liquid-based batteries that could one day power cars and homes. BODIPY – short for boron-dipyrromethene – shines brightly in the […]






MIT researchers have for the first time developed a supercapacitor that uses no conductive carbon at all. The new supercapacitors could potentially produce more power than existing versions of this technology. Energy storage devices called supercapacitors have become a hot area of research, in part because they can be charged rapidly and deliver intense bursts […]






Researchers from the Solar Energy Institute at the Universidad Polit├ęcnica de Madrid (UPM) are developing a new energy storage system in which the entry energy, either from solar energy or surplus electricity from a renewable power generation, is stored in the form of heat in molten silicon at very high temperature, around 1400┬░ C. The […]
