Their goal: to identify an optimal clean energy project suitable for Serbia’s specific energy circumstances and for the company.
Batteries, and their close kin fuel cells, produce electricity through chemical reactions. The rates at which these reactions occur determine how fast the battery can charge
Electrical currents also flow through diamonds quickly, meaning the material would make for energy efficient devices.
A standard lithium ion phone battery of 1000 milliamp-hour capacity can power a one-watt LED lamp for about three hours, or a 0.5-watt lamp — bright enough for reading and writing — for about six hours.
Lithium ion phosphate batteries are widely used to power the batteries in electric cars, but, unlike the amount of gas in a fuel tank, their state of charge can’t be measured directly by a physical quantity.
After all, the purpose of sharkskin-inspired riblets — the micro-grooved structures found in aircraft wings, wind turbine blades and Olympic-class swimsuits — is to do just that.
