Hawaiian Electric Reveals Full List of Winners From Its Big Energy Storage Procurement

The winners range from energy storage stalwarts to relative newcomers to the large-scale battery business. Hawaiian Electric this week revealed the full list of winners from its second large-scale procurement of energy storage and renewables for the islands of Oahu, Maui and Hawaii. The winners run the gamut from major industry players like AES and Engie to […]

Dominion Targets 24GW of Renewables and Storage in Move Toward Virginia’s Clean Energy Goals

The utility embraces solar and offshore wind, but critics say its plan is too reliant on fracked gas and pipelines. Utility Dominion Energy is planning a major shift toward renewable energy and batteries as it looks to comply with Virginia’s ambitious new clean energy law. Dominion Virginia’s new integrated resource plan (IRP), announced Friday, represents […]

Scientists develop stable material for pseudocapacitors which store electrical energy by electron charge transfer

  Scientists at the Institute of Nano Science and Technology (INST), Mohali, an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, have developed a stable material for pseudocapacitors or supercapacitors which store electrical energy by electron charge transfer. The material can offer a low-cost scalable energy storage solution as an alternative to […]

Scientists develop a new cathode material for metal-ion batteries

Researchers from the Skoltech Center for Energy Science and Technology (CEST) created a new cathode material based on titanium fluoride phosphate, which achieved superior energy performance and stable operation at high discharge currents. The results of their study were published in Nature Communications. Today, the rapid development of electric transport and renewable energy sources calls […]

Battery Researchers Look to Artificial Intelligence to Slash Recharging Times

Today’s EV fast-charging technology remains slow by gas-station standards. Faster testing processes for new charging techniques would help. The battery sector is turning to artificial intelligence for clues on how to improve recharging rates without increasing the degradation of lithium-ion batteries. Last month, a team from Stanford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the […]

INNOVATION: Soon, batteries from Nuclear waste that last for thousands of years

Next-generation diamond batteries that use energy from radioactive materials have already been developed and tested by researchers at the University of Bristol, who now hope to recycle waste from decommissioned nuclear power plants around the UK New Delhi : Scientists are attempting to transform nuclear waste into batteries that can last for thousands of years.
