Texas A&M University researchers have described their novel plant-based energy storage device that could charge even electric cars within a few minutes in the near future. Furthermore, they said their devices are flexible, lightweight and cost-effective. Dr. Hong Liang, the Oscar S. Wyatt Jr. Professor in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists have found the desirable component for sodium-ion batteries (SIB), which could contribute to boost SIB performance such as speed of charge. While lithium-ion batteries are currently popular, it is expected that a new storage chemistry will be found soon, because lithium is not only expensive but limited in supply. […]

A Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) team of researchers has introduced a novel technology that promises to significantly boost the performance of lithium metal batteries. In a study published in Advanced Materials, the UNIST team introduced a novel technology that promises to significantly boost the performance of lithium metal batteries, a promising […]

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have found that lithium ion batteries operate longer and faster when their electrodes are treated with hydrogen. Through experiments and calculations, the LLNL team discovered that hydrogen-treated graphene nanofoam electrodes in the lithium ion batteries show higher capacity and faster transport. The growing demand for energy storage emphasizes the […]
