Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have designed a battery made from inexpensive, abundant materials, that could provide low-cost backup storage for renewable energy sources. Less expensive than lithium-ion battery technology, the new architecture uses aluminum and sulfur as its two electrode materials with a molten salt electrolyte in between. The new battery architecture is described […]

University of Tokyo researchers, who explore the physical and chemical properties of electrical energy storage, have found a new way to improve lithium-ion batteries. They successfully increased not only the voltage delivery of a lithium-ion battery but also its ability to suppress dangerous conditions that affect the current range of batteries. This improved lithium-ion battery […]

Chalmers University of Technology and the National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia have new concept for an aluminum battery has twice the energy density as previous versions, is made of abundant materials, and could lead to reduced production costs and environmental impact. The press release offers the idea that it has potential for large scale applications, […]

Stanford University scientists are another step toward building a better battery doing long shifts at the helm of a highly sophisticated microscope recording chemical reactions at near-atomic-scale resolution. The researchers are camped out with one of the most advanced microscopes in the world to capture an unimaginably small reaction in the Dionne lab 18 feet […]

Researchers at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have identified a whole new class of high-performing organic molecules that’s inspired by vitamin B2. Your humble writer likes these posts about making new ideas from suggestions sourced in unrelated fields most of all. The new high-performing organic molecules can safely store electricity from intermittent energy […]
