NIMS and Softbank Corp. have developed a lithium-air battery with an energy density over 500 Wh/kg-;significantly higher than currently lithium ion batteries.
About:Energy, a joint spin out from Imperial College London and the University of Birmingham has been set up to help commercialise the battery modelling capability developed by the Faraday Institution's Multi-scale Modelling Project.
A team of researchers at the University of Michigan has created a next-generation lithium-sulfur battery using recycled Kevlar.
For electric vehicles (EVs) to become mainstream, they need cost-effective, safer, longer-lasting batteries that won't explode during use or harm the environment. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology may have found a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries made from a common material: rubber.
With the long-term goal to realize carbon neutrality, lithium battery has acquired a growingly central role in the development of human society. The accurate yet efficient prognosis on battery state of health (SOH) remains vital in ensuring a safe and reliable operation. In addition, as the demand to increase battery energy density continues to grow, the development of novel, high-energy-density battery systems such as lithium metal batteries is of paramount significance.
Researchers at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University may have found a way to revitalize rechargeable lithium batteries, potentially boosting the range of electric vehicles and battery life in next-gen electronic devices.
Researchers have developed a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in the form of an ultra-long fiber that could be woven into fabrics.
One of the barriers to generating electricity from wind and solar energy is their intermittent nature.
ABB Terra 124 chargers have been installed in Italy, as the industrial metropolis of Milan swaps its 1,200 diesel buses for brand new, all-electric ones by 2030.
Millions of people around the world lack access to electricity. Decentralised solar-battery systems are key for addressing this whilst avoiding carbon emissions and air pollution, but are hindered by relatively high costs and rural locations that inhibit timely preventative maintenance.
