Nanoparticle catalysts improve zinc-air batteries

A cathode containing nanoparticles made from cobalt, cobalt oxide and a carbon-based outer shell improved the performance of a zinc-air battery.

A*STAR researchers have found that nanoparticles containing three different layers of material can help to boost the performance of a zinc-air battery. Zinc-air batteries are cheap, have a high energy density, and last for a very long time. Their use of a water-based electrolyte makes them safer than other batteries,

As clean energy grows, markets must evolve

Map of organized wholesale market regions

As 2016 fades away in the rear-view mirror, we reflect on a year of increasing tensions between the wholesale electricity markets—where utilities and other power suppliers purchase, sell, and trade energy to meet our energy needs—and our ever-growing appetite for cleaner, carbon-free power. The need to optimize
