We are constantly in motion all day long. It’s a human thing to want to be busy, and perhaps why humans are in control, at least for now.
After an extreme storm damaged the power cable from the Australian mainland in late 2015, the island of Tasmania faced an energy drought. To make things worse, it faced a real drought too
It’s hard to believe there were no power stations once, in early days of electricity and battery science. You see, electricity was still a mystery back then.
There’s a new breed of solar panel making news lately and for good reason. Lumo panels are making greenhouses more profitable and energy efficient. These Lumo panels bare little resemblance to your typical solar panels. Firstly, they’re pink (yes, pink), opaque, and they’re actually good for plants. How Do They Work? Unlike other solar panels, […]
The battery is the heart of the electric car, for it directs the nature of the interface with people. How many miles are there between recharges, and how long do these take to complete?
Twelve gigawatts of storage is a big number. Let us get our minds around it first. One gigawatt is 4.6 million solar panels
Electrical engineers come up with amazing ways to explain things to the rest of us. When Elektrek announced batteries are eating up 0.3% of the duck curve in California we had to know more.
We need more renewable energy because it does not destroy matter. No amount of fossilized arguments can ever change that. Besides, ‘fossilized’ means archaic
An Australian oil rig on battery power seemed a strange combination to us at first sight. Using renewable energy to extract non-renewable oil appeared to border on the absurd.
A party balloon is a battery. Inflate one and release it in the air to convince yourself it is an energy storage system.
