IBM proposes sustainable successor to lithium-ion battery – Deezen, 6.01.20
IBM has developed a new type of battery that’s free of cobalt, nickel and other heavy metals, avoiding the environmental and humanitarian issues related to lithium-ion technology.
The battery is made from three materials that can be extracted from seawater, a much less invasive sourcing method than mining.
IBM Research, the innovation arm of tech company IBM, says there is no record of these materials, which include lithium iodide and a new and proprietary electrolyte formulation, previously being combined into a battery.
Deceniul bateriilor – ZF, 1.01.2020
UBS estimează că în următorul deceniu costurile stocării de energie vor înregistra o scădere cuprinsă între 66% şi 80% şi că piaţa va creşte până la 425 miliarde de dolari la nivel mondial. În paralel se vor dezvolta ecosisteme întregi care vor susţine o nouă eră a electricităţii bazate pe baterii, iar efectele vor fi resimţite la nivelul întregii societăţi.
The Mechanical Battery – New Mind, 2019
Though more commonly known for its electro-chemical variant, a battery or accumulator is any device that stores energy. Batteries fundamentally allow us to decouple energy supply from demand. But a far lesser-known, mechanical based rechargeable battery based on flywheel energy storage or FESS is showing a resurgence of interest.
