Scientists Develop Fast-Charging Li-Ion Battery

A group of scientists from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) have developed a fast-charge lithium-ion battery that can be recharged 30 to 120 times faster than conventional Li-Ion batteries. The team believes it can build a battery pack for electric vehicles that can be fully charged in less than a minute.

The cathode material — standard lithium manganese oxide (LMO) — is soaked in a solution containing graphite and then carbonized. This process results in the creation of the fast-charging li-ion battery. These networks of carbonized graphite effectively act like blood vessels, allowing every part of the battery to recharge at the same time — thus speeding up recharge by 30 to 120 times.

How Can Energy Storage Systems Reduce Investment Expenditure for TSOs/DSOs?

Our demand for energy continues to grow – and while generation has kept up with demand, infrastructure improvements have lagged behind. Bringing grid infrastructure to modern standards is not a simple task. With most power grids many decades old, Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and Distribution System Operators (DSOs) face expensive decisions. Is it more cost-effective…

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage For The Grid

Power-to-gas is the method of turning electricity into hydrogen gas using electrolysis. The resulting hydrogen can then be used as vehicle fuel, combined with carbon dioxide to make methane (a natural gas replacement), or injected into natural gas infrastructure as hydrogen in low concentrations. If made from surplus renewable electricity, the generated hydrogen is low-carbon…

The importance of South Africa as an energy storage market

Could South Africa be an important energy storage market in the making?

A change in president could signal a new era for energy storage in South Africa. New leader Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to restart a previously held back renewable energy programme and provide a more friendly environment to wary foreign investors. Previous leader Zuma was forced to resign under the mounting pressure of corruption allegations involving…
