Stanford University has built a new battery made from affordable and durable materials that generates energy from places where salt and fresh waters merge together. The technology could make coastal wastewater treatment plants energy-independent and carbon neutral. Salt has power potential. It might sound like alchemy, but the energy in places where salty ocean water […]

A Purdue University scientists led a multi-institute team of researchers has developed the most comprehensive view yet of lithium-ion battery electrodes. The electrodes are where most damage typically occurs from charging them repeatedly. The researchers say manufacturers could use this information to design batteries for your smartphone or car that are both more reliable and […]

Ohio State University researchers have built a more efficient, more reliable potassium-oxygen battery, a step toward a potential solution for energy storage on the nation’s power grid and longer-lasting batteries in cell phones and laptops. In a study published in the journal Batteries and Supercaps, researchers from Ohio State University detailed their findings centering around […]

Chalmers University of Technology researchers recently unveiled a promising breakthrough for the lithium sulfur battery, using a catholyte with the help of a graphene sponge. Lithium sulfur batteries, which offer a theoretical energy density more than five times that of lithium ion batteries could meet the demands of an electric future when new battery technologies […]

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researchers have created a lithium-ion battery that can charge in a matter of minutes but still operate at a high capacity as is possible. The development has the potential to improve battery performance for consumer electronics, solar grid storage, and electric vehicles. The paper explaining the results as been published in Nature […]
