Notable & Newsworthy
GenCell, the Israel-based fuel cell developer and manufacturer, has announced a strategic partnership with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), a leading North American energy company. The San Diego-based energy company has been working alongside GenCell over the last year to test how fuel cells can
Dialog Semiconductor, a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, solid state lighting and Bluetooth® low energy technology, in partnership with Energous, the developer of WattUp, a wire-free charging technology that provides over-the-air power at a distance, today announced the
Picodeon is developing Lithium Ion Battery technology based on Pulsed Laser Deposition to deliver improved Energy Density, Power Density, reduced charging time, and higher safety performance. Picodeon, a leading Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) technology company based in Ii, Finland announced its programme to
It has long been postulated that graphene should undergo a superconducting transition, but can’t
Since its discovery in 2004, scientists have believed that graphene may have the innate ability to superconduct. Now Cambridge researchers have found a way to activate that previously dormant potential.
Researchers have found a way to trigger the innate, but previously hidden, ability of graphene
Polaron solar cell in laboratory tests: Black is the manganate absorber film with hot polaron excitations
An interdisciplinary team of researchers has laid the foundations for an entirely new type of photovoltaic cell. In this new method, infrared radiation is converted into electrical energy using a different mechanism from that found in conventional solar cells. The mechanism behind the new solid-state solar cell
Eltek announced a contract with United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to provide complete photo voltaic solar solutions for 104 hospitals in Zimbabwe.
Eltek will provide full delivery, installation, service and monitoring of the solar systems which use Eltek’s breakthrough Rectiverter
China put $32 billion into foreign renewables projects in 2016 alone
If the U.S. turns away from the rise of renewable energy, it will be fighting a tide on which others will ride high.
Leading the surge will be China, which already has a huge advantage in its current position at the front of the pack, as IEEFA chronicled last week in a report by Tim Buckley, our director
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,
Novel functionality including sensors, energy harvesting lighting and communication antennae will now be integrated into the structure of advanced aircraft
New technology that could enhance both the electrical and thermal conductivity of conventional composite materials has been developed thanks to a collaboration between the University of Surrey, University of Bristol and aerospace company Bombardier.
New composite technology will see enhanced electrical
AptoVision, Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Sony and ZeeVee announced that they have formed the SDVoE Alliance to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology that allows software to define AV applications.
Scientists have created an ionic conductor, meaning materials that ions can flow through, that is transparent, mechanically stretchable, and self-healing.
Scientists, including several from the University of California, Riverside, have developed a transparent, self-healing, highly stretchable conductive material that can be electrically activated to power artificial muscles and could be used to improve batteries, electronic devices, and robots.
Leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics, energy and digital technology imec (partner in EnergyVille) and BE Semiconductor Industries (Besi), a leading manufacturer of assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry, announced that they have demonstrated long-term reliability in five full size
