Scientists solve the perovskites solar cell durability puzzle

Engineers say they’ve solved a long-standing conundrum in making stable, efficient solar panels out of halide perovskites. It took finding the right solvent design to...

Charging cars at home at night is not the way to go, Stanford study...

Most electric vehicle owners charge their cars at home in the evening or overnight. We’re doing it wrong, according to a new Stanford study. In March,...

New 3D printing process offers novel energy storage design options

Engineers have developed a process to print solid-state polymer electrolytes into any shape desired for use in energy storage. The research team from the School...

How do rechargeable aqueous zinc batteries work

Researchers have hoped that rechargeable zinc-manganese dioxide batteries — which promise safety, low cost and environmental sustainability — could be developed into a viable...

Scientists find super-fast way to charge electric car in 10 minutes

Despite the growing popularity of electric vehicles, many consumers still hesitate to make the switch. One reason is that it takes so much longer to...

Wastewater may be the key to powering America’s lithium energy demands

As industries across the country begin the transition to renewable energy, the demand for batteries, and therefore lithium, is projected to rise dramatically. But, with...

How Ukraine war has changed global energy policies

Fears about energy independence in the wake of the war in Ukraine that caused an oil and gas supply crisis have accelerated the global...

What is greedflation and is it driving higher prices

Is inflation being aided and abetted by price-gouging? The idea of exploiting inflation to create excessive profits has become known as greedflation—a concept that is...

Scientists find new way to make cheaper batteries

New, easily fabricated, high performance carbon microlattice electrodes could soon be used to make cheaper batteries powered by readily available sodium ions. The approach was...

Why perovskites could take solar cells to new heights

Perovskites hold promise for creating solar panels that could be easily deposited onto most surfaces, including flexible and textured ones. These materials would also be...
