Batteries contain chemicals that store and release electrical energy at relatively slow rates compared to capacitors, which are often used in applications requiring power to be delivered rapidly. Capacitors can charge and release energy quickly by using electric fields to store charges on negative and positive plates. The plates are separated by an electrolyte, a […]

In order to transition towards a fully renewable energy-based economy, the problem of intermittency in non-fossil fuel electricity generation first needs to be solved, said Donald Sadoway, professor of materials chemistry at MIT. “I wanted something that was versatile and could go wherever you needed to have the gap, bridge, when the sun isn’t shining […]
“That means that reductions in air pollution happened very suddenly, making them easier to detect,” explained study first author Ian Marius Peters from Helmholtz-Institut Erlangen-Nurnberg for Renewable Energies in Germany Boston: Based on data collected in Delhi, scientists report that the reduction in air pollution due to lockdown measures enforced in the country may have […]
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have devised a new way to further bring down the cost of solar panels. Solar power, one of the most promising renewable sources of energy has emerged as a major driver of global energy transformation. However, there are plenty […]
After years of development, the company’s process should enter commercial production in 2019. Cambridge startup 24M closed a $21.8 million Series D in November to continue commercializing its advanced battery manufacturing process. The round included new investor Itochu, one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Japan, and returning investors Kyocera and North Bridge Venture Partners. […]
