Water-based battery to store solar and wind energy

Water-based battery to store solar and wind energy

May 7, 2018 United States
Researchers have developed a water-based battery that could provide a cheap way to store wind or solar energy generated when the sun is shining and wind is blowing so it can be fed back into the electric grid and be redistributed when demand is high.

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

New technology could wean the battery world off cobalt

Apr 20, 2018 United States
Lithium-based batteries use more than 50 percent of all cobalt produced in the world. These batteries are in your cell phone, laptop and maybe even your car. But now, a research team has opened the door to using other metals in lithium-based batteries, and have built cathodes with 50 percent more lithium-storage capacity than conventional materials.
