Why Large Lithium-Ion Capacitors LIC Now Gain Major Orders

Why Large Lithium-Ion Capacitors LIC Now Gain Major Orders

Lithium-ion capacitors are typically devices with one Li-ion battery electrode and one supercapacitor electrode, both swimming in a lithium-ion battery electrolyte. Usually Asymmetric Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors AEDLC, they were first commercialised in 1999, the year IDTechEx was founded.

London Bus Garage Becomes World's Largest Vehicle-to-Grid Site

London Bus Garage Becomes World's Largest Vehicle-to-Grid Site

A North London bus garage is set to become a 'virtual power station', generating electricity from buses when not in use. Following a transformation to garage nearly 100 new zero-emission electric buses, Northumberland Park is now one of the biggest electric bus facilities in Europe. The project, called Bus2Grid, is believed to be the world's largest vehicle-to-grid trial site.

Graphene and Related Materials Inks Improve Solar Cells

Imagine the environmental benefits if we could all simply paint solar cells onto the roof of our houses, or onto any surface for that matter. We could do this using perovskite solar cells, but, due to their instability, they have not yet been widely introduced. Now, researchers from the Graphene Flagship have developed hybrids of graphene and molybdenum disulphide quantum dots to stabilise PSCs.

Electric Cars: The Lifeline of the Auto Industry

Electric Cars: The Lifeline of the Auto Industry

In the past two decades, the car market has declined twice: first due to the 2008 economic crisis, and then due to falling sales in China. Most recently, the lockdowns implemented to combat the coronavirus pandemic, causing auto-production plants to close globally and a loss of consumer spending will lead to an unprecedented 23% decline in 2020 (IDTechEx prediction).
