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.
Is it a solar cell or a rechargeable battery? Both! The patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is the world’s first solar battery.
A new report claims that new battery technology could make it possible for Australian homes to generate and store solar-powered energy more inexpensively than traditional electricity suppliers by 2018. A report by The Climate Council, a non-government organisation, found that improvements in battery technology may make solar energy cheaper than purchasing it within … Continue reading By 2018, an Expected 50% of all Australian Homes will Convert to Solar Power
Is it a solar cell or a rechargeable battery? Both! The patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is the world’s first solar battery. In the October 3, 2014 issue of the journal Nature Communications, the Ohio State researchers reported that they’ve succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell … Continue reading World’s First Solar Cell that Stores its Own Power
