The vehicle-to-grid technology, already in commercial use in several areas of the world, points to a future where vehicles will routinely draw and discharge energy to the power grid.
A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has developed a technology that could make fuel cells cheaper and more durable.
European studies of offshore wind document that atmospheric conditions there are predominantly neutral– meaning neither too windy nor too still, but somewhere in the middle, with unstable wind conditions occurring only 20 percent of the time.
SIOW surveyed industry experts in the region to analyze what electricity costs would look like with 2,000 MW of offshore wind energy offMassachusetts’ coast from 2020-2030.
Researchers reported a breakthrough that promises to bring down the cost of hydrogen fuel cells by replacing expensive platinum catalysts with cheaper ones made from metals like nickel.
A great deal of effort has been devoted to improving this feature — known as energy density — of dielectric capacitors, which comprise an insulating material sandwiched between two conducting metal plates.
