European researchers have shown that it is possible to significantly reduce the need for platinum in fuel cells through the development of a new type of nanocatalyst.
Researchers have been investigating the ability of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) — small devices that convert movement into electricity — to create wearable electronics powered solely by the wearer's day-to-day body motion.
US and Chinese researchers have taken the same process that makes gold-plated jewellery or chrome car accents, known as electroplating, and applied it to lithium-ion battery cathodes.
The University of Newcastle (UON) has officially unveiled its 100 m2 printed solar demonstration site, said to be the first in Australia and the third of its size in the world.
Semiconductor company STMicroelectronics, Chinese R&D institute IMECAS and technology company EPOCH are partnering in the development and marketing of a battery management system for new energy vehicles (NEVs).
CSIRO intends to fill a gap in the global energy technology chain by supplying fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) with low-emissions hydrogen sourced from Australia.
Researchers have received a $50,000 grant to commercialise a chip that can make lower power electronics, like mobile phones, work more efficiently.
US researchers have demonstrated nickel–zinc (Ni–Zn) batteries in which a three-dimensional Zn 'sponge' replaces the powdered zinc anode traditionally used.
RECOM's R1SX series has a nearly 20% lower profile than the industry standard due to its inverted transformer design. The 1 W DC/DC converters are suitable for bus isolation and a wide range of industrial automation control equipment.
Japanese researchers have designed a solar cell with theoretical energy conversion efficiency of over 60%, in a breakthrough which could have a big impact on the cost of producing electricity.
RECOM's regulated DC/DC converters RSE (2 W) and RSOE (1 W) series were developed for a variety of industrial, transport, test and measurement applications which require onboard 5 V power supplies.
Swiss researchers have developed semitransparent organic solar cells that apparently achieve better efficiency and transparency than existing ones.
