The Smithsonian Institute believes battery research is at a tipping point. “The world is waiting on a battery breakthrough,” they say.
Electricity and batteries go hand in hand with electrochemistry and physics. These topics keep over 10,000 scientists busy at Argonne National Laboratory.
The US Government spent $760 million on its Argonne National Laboratory in 2016. Argonne channeled some of these funds to universities for academic work.
The US Department of Energy released exciting news of growth in wind power on August 9, 2017. It says wind capacity ‘in the construction funnel’
A report by scientists released in London, Houston, Singapore, and Sydney is predicting bad news for gas turbines. It thinks renewables and batteries could replace them
Researchers at Imperial College London have solved the enigma of energy storage costs in future. They believe electric car and home storage batteries could rival alternatives
The race is on to discover better batteries for electronic devices. Batteries that will charge faster, discharge slower
Lithium battery aging continues to be a thorny problem. Daniel Abraham at Argonne National Laboratory thinks this may be because
Selecting the right type, right size, and right number of solar batteries comes loaded with several options.
A solar battery should last at least five years. Many last considerably longer with the right care.
