A powerful new material developed by Northwestern University chemist William Dichtel and his research team could one day speed up the charging process of electric cars and help increase their drivi

Silicon-air batteries are viewed as a promising and cost-effective alternative to current energy storage technology. However, they have thus far only achieved relatively short running times.

Even at current market prices, various different energy storage options make economic sense for renewable energy projects in some locations, according to new research from MIT.

Forget mousetraps -- today's scientists will get the cheese if they manage to build a better battery.

When it comes to the lab, accidents aren't usually a good thing, but an unexpected result has led chemists to a system that could make batteries last up to 400 times longer than the best-performing

A narrow focus on cost alone may be leading to misconceptions about the real value of energy storage according to a new report by the World Energy Council ‘E-storage – shifting from cost to value’.

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.
