Demand for electric vehicles and their critical raw materials continues to expand globally. International Energy Association (IEA) reports 40% demand growth between 2022 and 2023. Some 95% of this noteworthy electric vehicle battery trend is due to increasing vehicle sales. While IEA ascribes the balance to bigger batteries for sports utility vehicles. United States and Europe Lead Electric Vehicle Battery Trends The United States and Europe were the only two major electric vehicle markets to exceed the global average 40% growth. Although China came a close second at 35%. Nonetheless, the Unit ..read more

Cryogenic liquid-air energy storage uses very low-temperature liquids to store energy, typically in liquid air.The prime focus of this process is storing large-scale electricity. Hence it is a form of battery, albeit not portable. We wrote this article because we believe anything that can safely store renewable energy is good for our planet. How Grid-Scale Cryogenic Liquid-Air Energy Storage Works A cryogenic liquid-air energy storage entrepreneur purchases electricity at bulk, paying off-peak rates. They use this energy to cool air from the atmosphere to -195º C / -319º F. Afte ..read more

Fast electric car charging is fundamental to changing the way we manage energy on our planet. There will be justification for individuals opting out, until this process can compete with the speed of refueling gasoline. We agree with AZO Materials that we need more effort to resolve this impasse. For if we do not resolve it, then we could continue down the road to global warming. How Battery Fundamentals Impede Fast Electric Car Charging When we charge a battery, we force electrons into the anode creating a surplus of energy. We can tap into that power by connecting the battery to an external c ..read more

Battery Swap Stations Support Taiwan Grid

Power utilities balance their grids by increasing or decreasing supply, and managing demand. They achieve the latter by offering off-peak incentives, and in rare cases shedding customers. Battery energy storage systems are a novel way to bolster the supply side. Now, a battery swap station in Taiwan is helping balance the grid from their side too. Battery Swap Stations Are Big Business in Taiwan Battery exchanging is big business in Taiwan. One such service has 590 outlets serving two-wheeled electric bikes, mopeds and scooters according to MIT Technology Review. These are user driven, au ..read more

We could not use renewable energy without inverters processing it first. That’s because renewables send direct current to batteries, and our devices use alternating current. There’s an interesting history that got us into this situation. Read more about the ‘War of the Currents’ we link to below. For now, let’s stick to our topic of inverters and batteries and renewable energy. How Inverters and Batteries Deliver Alternating Current Solar panels and wind turbines send direct current to batteries, which store it as electro-chemical energy. They release this energy on demand, and send ..read more

Huge Solar Battery Farms Transform Electricity

As we entered the twenty-first century, electricity was still a relatively hit-or-miss affair. Either you had it, or you did not. If demand exceeded supply, then the utility might shed some customers. If the grid went down completely, then you scrambled for the candles. But now we have huge solar battery farms that help prevent this happening, by storing electricity for those lean times. Huge Solar Battery Farms Reshape North American Landscapes Communities in Texas and California are already seeing the benefits, as noisy polluting gas peaking stations fall silent. Clean huge solar batter ..read more

It can be unnerving for electric train passengers, to put it mildly, when a power outage occurs. We look out the window but dare not step out the door for fear of electric cables. We may be late for a critical interview but what can we do? If only the train company had emergency battery power, we say to the stranger next to us. Kolkata Metro Awards Tender for Emergency Battery Power  The Kolkata Metro announced that an emergency battery power backup service would support its oldest ‘Blue Line’ network. This branch was laid down in 1978, and runs across Kolkata from north to south. The mod ..read more

A team from Nano Research Energy at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China have invented a wearable battery that self-heals damage. They published their report in the June 3, 2024 edition of the Sci-Open journal we link to below. They say their battery performance includes ‘excellent energy and power density, plus a 3,000 charging cycle life’. The Wearable Battery Survives Ten Self-Healing Cycles Phys.Org News sees great potential for this invention in smart clothing, fitness trackers, smart watches, and so on. We can just imagine going about our daily routine, knowing our on-board ba ..read more

Road transport contributed around 20% of global CO2 emissions in 2020, and there has not been a marked improvement. Some 75% of this pollution comes from vehicles traveling on roads. Clearly, we must electrify transport as the best-known alternative available. But there are a number of electric vehicle battery issues that are holding us back. Is Driver Mistrust The Core Electric Vehicle Battery Issue? We know we have to tactfully persuade consumers to use electric road transport in our democratic society. However, we suggest this is a secondary issue driven by several underlying technical elec ..read more

Second hand electric cars are dropping off UK motorists’ shopping lists, according to some media reports. This is not good news for sales of new electric vehicles, because it questions whether these are wise investments. In the longer, run this could also impact the drive to decarbonize transport. How Worried Are Second Hand Electric Car Buyers? It depends on who you ask, they say, and potentially their agenda. One contributor describes itself as ‘a purpose-driven force for sustainability in business … to empower energy and environmental professionals’. This pro-environmental agency sugge ..read more
