The result is a much higher capacity battery that could enable smart phones and battery-powered automobiles to last much longer.
The researchers noted that glycolic acid (GC) has a much greater energy capacity than hydrogen, one of the more popular energy storage chemicals.
During the daytime, the ADO The Hague football stadium generates its own energy from solar panels on its roof.
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.
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.
Phones, laptops, electric cars – batteries are everywhere. And to meet the expectations of today’s consumers, these batteries are increasingly light, more powerful and designed to last longer.
