ARPA-E, a sustainable energy moonshot agency of the US government, is absolutely kicking ass

The Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy [ARPA-E] was set up by bipartisan action in 2007, funded by Obama in 2009; expanded by Congress in 2009; and survived attempts by Trump to kill it in both 2017 and 2018. ARPA-E is a skunkworks project that gives out grants for advanced sustainable energy research that's beyond the initial phases but still too nascent to be commercialized. They've focused on long-term energy storage (a key piece of the picture with renewabl...

Cheap material could radically improve battery charging speed, say scientists

Discovery could accelerate adoption of electric cars and solar energy, as well as helping to recharge your smartphone in minutesA newly identified group of materials could help recharge batteries faster, raising the possibility of smartphones that charge fully in minutes and accelerating the adoption of major clean technologies like electric cars and solar energy, say researchers.The speed at which a battery can be charged depends partly upon the rate at which positively charged particles, calle...

Google wants to solve renewable energy storage with salt and antifreeze

One of the arguments against solar and wind is that the renewable energy sources are intermittent and thus unreliable — the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow. Storage is the key to unlocking the full potential of renewables to power modern, industrial societies on the scale of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Now, Google’s parent Alphabet is joining the race to develop clean energy storage. The Malta project, from Alphabet’s secretive research lab X, uses cold antifreeze...

Chemical energy storage with water heating solar panels enables a conversion of more than 80 percent of the incoming sunlight

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have demonstrated efficient solar energy storage in a chemical liquid. The stored energy can be transported and then released as heat whenever needed. The research is now presented on the cover of the scientific journal Energy and Environmental Science.​Many consider the sun the energy source of the future. But one challenge is that it is difficult to store solar energy and deliver the energy ‘on demand’.A research team from Chalmers Uni...

Stanford researchers pioneer world's first affordable urea battery

Stanford University researchers have designed a new battery that could revolutionize renewable energy storage. Using urea, an affordable, natural and readily-available material found in mammal urine and fertilizers, the researchers have pioneered a battery that is notably more efficient than past iterations. The battery, developed by Stanford chemistry professor Honjie Dai and doctoral candidate Michael Angell, uses an electrolyte made from urea – a material already produced in mass industrial...

MIT's new carbon-free supercapacitor could revolutionize the way we store power

Finding ways to store clean energy is one of the largest challenges green entrepreneurs and innovators face today. A team led by MIT researchers developed a new supercapacitor that could revolutionize the way electric vehicles, for example, store power. The MIT supercapacitor, made without conducive carbon, even has the potential to "deliver more power." Past supercapacitors were all made with carbon, which required "high temperatures and harsh chemicals to produce," according to MIT News. Th...

MIT's new liquid battery charges with gravity - like an hourglass

Harnessing the force of gravity, researchers at MIT have designed a new liquid battery that functions similarly to an hourglass. the gravity-powered liquid battery at MIT could be groundbreaking in its simplicity, efficiency and low-cost. Although it is only a proof-of-concept design at the moment, the team is confident it can create a working prototype. The researchers predict their liquid battery could be used in the expansion of clean energy through enabling more powerful grid-connected stor...
