In an attempt to find more sustainable and lasting sources of energy, scientists are developing a battery for electric vehicles that has the potential of lasting up to 10 times longer than any lithium ion battery on the market. (Image of the different components of a fluoride battery Honda)   Since the 1990s, the lithium battery has been the best option for portable equipment or even electric vehicles. The lithium-ion battery replaced its predecessor, the nickel battery, thanks to its lig ...
The rechargeable fluoride-based batteries rely on a tetraalkylammonium salt-fluorinated ether electrolyte, and a copper-lanthanum trifluoride core-shell cathode to function without building up heat. (Image credit: Honda)   Move over lithium; fluoride is set to become the medium for more efficient, higher-density rechargeable batteries, according to researchers from Honda’s Research Institute, Caltech, and NASA’s JPL, who developed a new chemistry with a more favorable environme ...
Various teams of researchers are working independently to bring to the world a way to enjoy renewable energy on-the-go and at an affordable price. There is also a possibility to store clean energy using a technique that would not break the bank. Mechanism of using the Norbonadiene. (Image via zmescience)   Mankind’s efforts to create a greener and cleaner environment has led to many discoveries, among which are sustainable sources of energy: wind, sun, water, etc. However, what happe ...
Scientists at Harvard University are working on a plan to cool down the planet and fight global warming. The solution is in the greenhouse gases effect. Infographic of how solar geoengineering works. (Image from Harvard.edu)   Climate change has been at the center of many discussions in the last couple of years, especially since the 2016 elections in the United States. The country has never been as divided on the subject of what to do about global warming and climate change as it is today. ...
Hi all!   On this post you'll find the top 5 warning signs of hidden electrical problems.   You might have a hidden electrical problem if you have: 1. Repeated equipment failures 2. Random equipment resets or process failures 3. Breakers tripping or fuses blowing with no signs of overloading 4. Transformers or motors running hot 5. Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) frequently going on line   How to see everything your electrical system may be hiding. A computer locks ...
