Swiss Empa scientists and their colleagues have spent four years studying the potential of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) to store heat from the warmth of summer into the cold of winter. The theory behind this kind of heat storage is fairly straightforward: if you pour water into a beaker containing solid or concentrated sodium hydroxide (NaOH), […]






University of Tehran researchers at the university’s Nano Fabricated Energy Devices Lab have used an ultra-fast and simple method for the fabrication of different types of copper hydroxide nanostructures. The researchers proposed a fast, simple and low cost electric field enhanced synthesis method can be used for fabrication of high performance Cu(OH)2 nanostructured supercapacitance electrodes. […]






Researchers at the University of Maryland (UM) have announced a lithium ion battery design that effectively solves the lithium metal-solid electrolyte interface resistance problem that has been a major barrier to the development of a robust solid-state battery technology. The researchers at the UM Energy Research Center and A. James Clark School of Engineering have […]






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 […]
