Energy Storage, Key to Making Renewable Energy and Green Infrastructure Viable, is Expensive

"...Big infrastructure spending plans in both Canada, the United States, and the European Union, all place a lot of emphasis on renewable energy displacing coal, gas and petroleum burning generating stations and motor vehicles. Yet little attention is given to the one vital element that makes all these ‘green’ energy transition plans viable: practical and affordable energy storage. Solar and wind power are not available at all times, so they must be stored in a buffer to allow for use at night or when there is little wind..."

Exclusive: To decarbonise hydrogen power, get over the rainbow

"...Within the past year, public and private sector leaders worldwide have made ambitious plans to combat climate change. Within these plans, hydrogen often plays a critical role, and the source of this hydrogen energy has come under increasing interest and scrutiny. The challenge is, the vast majority of hydrogen is manufactured from fossil-fuel sources, and a simple colour association is being used in the absence of a standard for distinguishing the carbon intensity of hydrogen..."

Inventor of lithium batteries creates a coating to boost their capacity

"...Many might be familiar with their smartphones or other electronic devices losing the charge over time, but the lithium-ion batteries that power them actually forego a sizable chunk of their capacity before they even get started. This is caused by impurities that form during their very first cycle, but a team led by the Nobel-Prize-winning inventor of rechargeable lithium batteries may have found a solution to this problem, in the form of a novel coating that protects against these losses at the outset. The impurities that underly these issues with lithium batteries can be found in the nickel-rich cathodes on the positive side of the device, which serve as one of its two electrodes..."
