Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf researchers’ laboratory experiments and a parabolic flight campaign have enabled an international team of researchers to gain new insights into water electrolysis, in which hydrogen is obtained from water by applying electric energy. Water electrolysis could play a key role in an energy transition if efficiency improvements can be achieved. The findings offer […]

Australia’s Monash University researchers have developed the world’s most efficient lithium-sulfur battery, capable of powering a smartphone for five continuous days. The prototype cells have been developed in Germany. Further testing in cars and solar grids is to take place in Australia during 2020. The researchers have a filed patent on the manufacturing process, and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… DOE/Argonne National Laboratory scientists have used sunlight and a catalyst largely made of copper to transform carbon dioxide into methanol. A liquid fuel, methanol offers the potential for industry to find an additional source to meet America’s energy needs.  The study has been published in the journal Nature Energy. The concentration of carbon dioxide […]

Happy New Year! DOE/Argonne National Laboratory researchers have turned to the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence to dramatically accelerate battery discovery. The press release likens designing new batteries with the best molecular building blocks for battery components to trying to create a recipe for a new kind of cake, when you have billions […]
