A new type of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) is being developed by researchers at the Department of Energyâ€™s Sandia National Laboratories to help bring the goal of a micro fuel cell closer to realisation using diverse fuels like glucose, methanol, and hydrogen.
One of the most remarkable and novel discoveries in the last 400 years has been electricity. You may ask, "Has electricity been around that long?" The answer is yes, and perhaps much longer
Invensys Powerware has released a 6000 VA rackmount uninterruptible power system that resolves power anomalies and supplies maximum uptime protection to all connected servers, storage devices, networking equipment and medical devices.
A University of Tulsa chemistry professor, Dale Teeters and two former students, Nina Korzhova and Lane Fisher have been awarded a patent for a method of making nanobatteries for use in tiny machines similar to the microbe-size craft that travelled through a human's blood vessels in the 1966 science-fiction movie, 'Fantastic Voyage'.
Running a laptop or other electrical equipment causes a problem when there is no access to a mains supply. If the battery runs out, where can you recharge it?
The Mobile Power Box has been developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar energy systems ISE working in cooperation with the firm of Masterflex. It is a membrane fuel cell system supplying mains-free energy in the medium power range.
