Jülich, ORNL researchers advance high energy density iron-air batteries

By mmillikin In a new study published in the journal Nano Energy, researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) provide in-depth insight into the electrochemically induced surface reaction processes on iron anodes in concentrated alkaline electrolyte in iron-air batteries. Using in-situ electrochemical atomic force microscopy (in-situ EC-AFM) at the Center…

New Tesla Roadster (Fastest Production Car Ever) In Broader Context

By Steve Hanley Tesla’s first production car was called the Roadster. Built on a heavily modified Lotus chassis, it was a direct descendant of the tZero, itself a modification of an existing sports car chassis. The tZero was manufactured by AC Propulsion, a small company near Los Angeles, and it used conventional lead-acid batteries. Its…

Is This GM’s 2020 Chevy Bolt-Based Electric Crossover?

By Jeff Cobb General Motors may have let the cat out of the bag with a picture showing what to expect in a few years from a Chevy-Bolt-based crossover. Or at least so goes conjecture on a document CEO Mary Barra released yesterday discussing greenification of the company’s fleet. Without badging to indicate Chevrolet or…

PPG partners with SiNode Systems to commercialize high-energy silicon-graphene anodes

By mmillikin PPG has entered into a partnership with SiNode Systems to accelerate the commercialization of high-energy silicon-graphene anode materials for advanced battery applications in electric vehicles. The 30-month project will enable the partners to rapidly develop and demonstrate anode materials that will store more energy than conventional lithium-ion battery materials, enabling electric vehicles to…

Solar Companies Scramble to Find a Critical Raw Material

Solar manufacturers are being battered by higher costs and smaller margins after an unexpected shortage of a critical raw material. Prices of polysilicon, the main component of photovoltaic cells, spiked as much as 35 percent in the past four months after environmental regulators in China shut down several factories.
