Hydropower Plants to Support Solar and Wind Energy in West Africa

Hydropower Plants to Support Solar and Wind Energy in West Africa

Hydropower plants can support solar and wind power, rather unpredictable by nature, in a climate-friendly manner. A new study in the scientific journal Nature Sustainability has now mapped the potential for such "solar-wind-water" strategies for West Africa: an important region where the power sector is still under development, and where generation capacity and power grids will be greatly expanded in the coming years.

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic installations, where they could perform for more than a decade in this less demanding role.

Dual mode energy harvesting

Dual mode energy harvesting

Combining two of the major categories of energy harvesting is now a strong trend. Objective is mainly to reduce intermittency, create resilience and reduce LCOE, partly by reducing or eliminating battery needs.

Thermoelectric harvesting latest situation

Thermoelectric harvesting latest situation

Pyroelectric energy harvesting is a failure because suitable temperature changes are rarely encountered. We deal with it in one slide at the end. The opposite is true of thermoelectric energy harvesting because it relies on temperature differences.

Triboelectric harvesting beginners guide

Triboelectric harvesting beginners guide

Triboelectric energy harvesting is the most recent major new mechanism of energy harvesting - static charge caused by contact of dissimilar materials that creates current in a circuit by induction when they are moved.
