In an effort to bring portable power sources to remote parts of the world, US researchers have developed a new type of battery — made of paper and fuelled by bacteria.
Researchers have found a way to improve the capacity of sodium-ion batteries, bringing them closer to potentially succeeding lithium-ion batteries in mainstream use.
A newly developed energy storage system, based on a nanomolecule that can store electric power or hydrogen gas, can be used as a flow battery or for hydrogen storage.
Flakes of phosphorene, a 2D form of phosphorus only a few atoms thick, are being used to boost the energy capacity of dye-sensitised solar cells.
Magellan Power's Solar Gate combines hardware and software to control and prevent the export of solar power to the grid.
Unlike ordinary batteries, which take the same amount of time to charge no matter how many you have, quantum batteries should charge faster the more you have of them.
STMicroelectronics has devised a smart solar hybrid LED streetlight system, developed as a pilot project and implemented in the car park at one of its campuses.
The growth in wearable devices and the ageing population may seem like two disconnected trends, but what if they were connected?
Helios has added the RWS1000B and RWS1500B industrial AC-DC power supplies. The series is suitable for industrial, test and measurement, broadcast, communications and LED signage equipment.
The RAC15-K and RAC20-K series are PCB-mount AC/DC modules with ultralow energy losses, especially in light load conditions.
