It’s often said that supercapacitors are the future of energy storage, but for that statement to become reality, supercapacitor performance needs to increase greatly, and that is just what researchers at MIT have been working on. In a newly released study, researchers from MIT and a few other institutions have developed a novel class of liquids that could revolutionize how supercapacitors perform by increasing capacity by four or five times, improve reliability, and could reduce the risk o ...
By 2050, nearly half of the world’s electricity will be supplied by solar and wind, effectively putting an end to energy created by coal and gas. Owners of EVs will also be able to hook up their automobile to a power grid, transferring energy back and forth between cars and houses, allowing car owners to carry renewable energy wherever they go.   However, it requires storage battery systems. Switching from a system that supplies energy through power plants running on fossil fuels to ...
