Stanford & MIT scientists find novel way to harness waste heat

Stanford and MIT researchers have developed a four-stage process that uses waste heat to charge a battery. First, an uncharged battery is heated by waste heat. Then, while the battery is still warm, a voltage is applied. When fully charged, the battery is allowed to cool, which increases the voltage. Once the battery has cooled, it actually delivers more electricity than was used to charge it.

Vast amounts of excess heat are generated by industrial processes and by electric power plants. Researchers around the world have spent decades seeking ways to harness some of this wasted energy. Most such efforts have focused on thermoelectric devices – solid-state materials that can produce electricity from

Refillable liquid batteries may empower electric vehicles

Rechargeable fuels are at an early stage

A novel battery technology stores energy in what researchers are calling "rechargeable fuel"—electrodes in liquid form. The result can be either recharged like a conventional battery or replaced by pumping in new fuel like gasoline. The materials could theoretically allow an electric car to travel
