Storing the surplus of renewable energy in batteries for later use seems like the obvious solution, but a new study from Stanford University suggests this might not always be the case.
Research shows that there will not be enough water in the world to meet demand by 2040 it the energy and power situation doesn’t improve by then.
Researchers at MIT are proposing a system that recycles materials from old car batteries, a potential source of lead pollution, into new, long-lasting solar panels that provide emissions-free power.
Electricity is found all around us, it produces a wide variety of effects, such as lightning, static electricity, electromagnetic induction and electrical current. Electricity is the flow of moving electrons. Flowing electrons are called an electrical current.
Oxidation-reduction, or redox reactions, take place in electrochemical cells. There are two different types of electrochemical cells. Spontaneous reactions occur in galvanic (voltaic) cells, and nonspontaneous reactions occur in electrolytic cells.
According to a patent issued to a team of researchers at The University of Alabama, using liquid salts during formation instead of harsh chemicals can strengthen fibers that conduct electricity.
In the feverish race to discover thinner and thinner materials with the surface area and conductivity to make better performing battery electrodes, a lump of clay may be the answer. Drexel University’s College of Engineering scientists has invented clay which is both highly conductive and can be easily molded into a variety of … Continue reading Conductive Clay Creates More Possibilities for Energy Storage
Blu-ray discs are already one of the best ways to store high-definition movies and TV shows because of their high-density data storage. Now, new research from Northwestern University states they also improve the performance of solar cells.
Many reference books claim that electricity is a type of energy and that electric current is a flow of energy. However, this is incorrect.
William Gilbert was an English physician, physicist, and natural philosopher. He is primarily remembered today for his book De Magnete (1600), and he is credited as one of the originators of the term “electricity.”
