The Growing Market of Redox Flow Battery

The Growing Market of Redox Flow Battery

The redox flow battery market is growing. After more than 40 years of research, and 20 years of testing and demonstration projects, the flow batteries are now technologically ready to compete on the energy storage market. With a forecasted CAGR of 30% in the next years, this technology is looking to have all the characteristics to address each segment of the energy storage market, from residential to grid scale application.

Very Slow is Better: Mesh Networks, IOT to Drones

Very Slow is Better: Mesh Networks, IOT to Drones

In engineering and science, the race for faster is well known. It spans from 5G streaming videos in seconds to Hyperloop and space tourism. However, if we are to have the envisaged tens of billions of Internet of Things nodes deployed, they must cost under two cents each and work on a whisper of electricity. No. We must go even further in redefining the problem.

Significance of Alphabet Exiting Giant Drones Including AWE

Significance of Alphabet Exiting Giant Drones Including AWE

Significance of Alphabet Exiting Giant Drones Including Airborne Wind Energy. Alphabet/ Google and Facebook exiting large drones does not mean such aircraft are a failure. In Alphabet, a sister company of Google, was acquisition Makani in California and later Hawaii trialling a huge drone with eight propeller-generators and a 70 meter wingspan.

Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

It is well known that face masks do not protect you from bacteria and certainly not from the latest coronavirus. They stop you emitting as much when you sneeze. Beyond infection, there is increasing concern about fine particulates in the air, now proven to pass through your whole body. These are no longer seen as leading to only respiratory diseases and heart failure. Research now links them to depression, birth problems and more. How can we make more effective face masks and air filters generally?

Triboelectric Energy Harvesting and Sensing

Triboelectric Energy Harvesting and Sensing

Unwanted static accumulation leads to hazards such as lightning, ignition, dust explosions, dielectric breakdown, electronic damage, and unpleasant shock on touching things. Deliberate creation of static charge leading to spark discharge was long ago achieved by the Wimshurst machine and Van der Graaf generator and party tricks such as rubbing a balloon on your clothing to make it adhere. None of these were useful beyond research and entertainment.
