World's Longest Subsea Cable Between UK and Norway Powers Up

World's Longest Subsea Cable Between UK and Norway Powers Up

The UK and Norway are now able to share renewable energy for the first time following the commissioning of the world's longest subsea electricity interconnector. By enabling the trade of renewable energy between the two countries, North Sea Link will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels in the UK and avoid 23 million tonnes of carbon emissions by 2030.

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

A team of bioengineers has invented a novel soft and flexible self-powered bioelectronic device. The technology converts human body motions — from bending an elbow to subtle movements such as a pulse on one's wrist — into electricity that could be used to power wearable and implantable diagnostic sensors.

New Solid-state Battery Surprises

New Solid-state Battery Surprises

Engineers created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long lasting, and energy dense. It holds promise for a wide range of applications from grid storage to electric vehicles.
