Washington State University (WSU) and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers have created a sodium-ion battery that holds as much energy and works as well as some commercial lithium-ion battery chemistries. The new battery may be a potentially viable battery technology made out of abundant and cheap materials. The team is reporting one of the […]

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. […]

Georgia Institute of Technology scientists have developed an anode material that enables sodium-ion batteries to perform at high capacity over hundreds of cycles. Lithium-ion batteries have become essential in everyday technology. But these power sources can explode under certain circumstances and are not ideal for grid-scale energy storage. Sodium-ion batteries are potentially a safer and […]

Led by the inventor of the lithium-ion battery, a team of researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin has identified a new, safe and sustainable cathode material for low-cost sodium-ion batteries. During the past five years, sodium-ion batteries have emerged as a promising new type of rechargeable battery […]

Gurpreet Singh, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at Kansas State University and his student researchers are the first to demonstrate that a composite ‘paper’ made of interleaved molybdenum disulfide and graphene nanosheets can be both an active material to efficiently store sodium atoms and a flexible current collector. The idea is a new […]
