State-of-the-art lithium ion batteries are powering a revolution in clean transport and high-end consumer electronics, but there is still plenty of scope for improving charging time.
Consumers across the world enjoy Greek yogurt for its taste, texture, and protein-packed punch. Reaching that perfect formula, however, generates large volumes of food waste in the form of liquid whey.
Many electric and hybrid cars use lithium-ion batteries, which are known to be exceptionally safe, but occasionally, an impact may disrupt the battery’s function, creating an electrical short.
New research at the University of Waterloo could lead to the development of batteries that triple the range of electric vehicles.
Scientists from the University of Surrey have produced non-metal electro-catalysts for fuel cells that could pave the way for production of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy generation.
Power conversion is intrinsically inefficient: A power converter will never output quite as much power as it takes in.
