A report released on Monday by environmental consultancy Eunomia found that the UK’s storage capacity - currently around 24MW - will accelerate in 2017 and then 'increase exponentially' to more tha

Sooner than it takes to build a nuclear power station, lithium-air batteries could be helping wind and solar to make coal, oil and nuclear obsolete, say Cambridge scientists.

We may be getting a real time glimpse of a world that energy visionaries have long awaited — one featuring a large scale merger between clean energy technologies, like wind and solar, and large bat

A team of researchers have created small, light and long-lasting batteries through the use of silicon technology.

There will be an international 'megashift' towards energy storage - batteries in particular - within the next 10 years, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has predicted.

A plan for a new global research program aimed at driving down the costs of renewable energy more quickly has drawn serious interest from the world's leading economies, its proponents say.

Lithium-ion technology is still the gold standard for energy storage as demonstrated by the popularity of the new Powerwall battery, Tesla Energy’s much-publicized foray into Li-ion energy storage

Europe will take a step closer towards a low-carbon power grid as Ireland starts work on a viable energy storage system in the coming weeks.

Foundations for an energy storage plant in Ireland that could “revolutionise” the integration of renewable power into electricity supplies will be laid within weeks.

We report on a one-step method for preparing nitrogen doped (N-doped) meso-/microporous hybrid carbon material (NCF) via the heat treatment of used cigarette filters under a nitrogen-containing atmosphere. The used cigarette filter, which is mostly composed of cellulose acetate fibers, can be transformed into a porous carbon material that contains both the mesopores and micropores spontaneously. The unique self-developed pore structure allowed a favorable pathway for electrolyte permeation and contact probability, resulting in the extended rate capability for the supercapacitor.
