Energy Storage/Distribution

A team of researchers led by Northwestern Engineering professor and fuel cell pioneer Sossina Haile has created a new fuel cell offering both exceptional power densities and long-term stability at optimal temperatures, a discovery that heightens the viability of incorporating fuel cells into a sustainable energy future.
Lithium metal-based batteries have the potential to turn the battery industry upside down.
Researchers from Northwestern University are mapping the US-South Canada power grid, the largest contiguous power grid in the world amenable to modeling in order to detect vulnerabilities.
Stanford researchers have developed a sodium-based battery that can store the same amount of energy as a state-of-the-art lithium ion battery, at substantially lower cost.

Imagine Alexander Graham Bell’s reaction if someone handed him an iPhone and told him that the device in his hand was the same as the large, cone-mounted transmitter he invented and used to call Thomas Watson in 1876.

A Vanderbilt research team created the world’s first steel-brass battery that can store energy at levels comparable to lead-acid batteries while charging and discharging at rates comparable to ultra-fast charging supercapacitors.
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are scaling up a prototype iron-flow battery to provide cleaner and cheaper power when renewable energy sources are ebbing or demand is peaking. The battery would also efficiently store excess electricity when use is low.
Natural gas and wind are the lowest-cost technology options for new electricity generation across much of the U.S. when cost, public health impacts and environmental effects are considered, according to new research released today by The University of Texas at Austin.
A molecule that transports oxygen in blood could be key to developing the next generation of batteries, and in a way that’s environmentally friendly.
Dendrites, whiskers of lithium that grow inside batteries and can cause fires like those in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, are the bane of next-generation lithium batteries.
