Flow batteries could provide for grid level storage

Intermittency in solar and wind power meant that energy storage solutions would need to be used to provide power during times when solar and wind power are not available. However, difficulties exist in using current lithium-ion battery technologies for storing large amount of wind and solar power as grid level storage given problems with scaling. … More Flow batteries could provide for grid level storage

Dangers of ultrafast charging of mobile devices

By their design, mobile devices, especially smartphones are always on, and with today’s need for high speed data communication via mobile base stations providing 4G data and voice services, energy consumption is significantly higher than feature phones of the previous mobile telecommunications era. Thus, battery capacity and energy consumption became primary points of consideration in … More Dangers of ultrafast charging of mobile devices
