This Compressed Air Grid ‘Battery’ Is An Energy Storage Game Changer by Caroline Delbert

Pumped hydropower is great. This method might be even better. Two new compressed air storage plants will soon rival the world’s largest non-hydroelectric facilities and hold up to 10 gigawatt hours of energy. But what is advanced compressed air energy storage (A-CAES), exactly, and why is the method about to have a moment? Compressed air […]

Green Hydrogen: Focusing On The Catalyst Surface by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Using energy from solar modules and wind turbines, water can be split by electrolysis into its constituents hydrogen and oxygen without producing any dangerous emissions. As the availability of energy from renewable sources varies when producing green, i.e. CO2-neutral, hydrogen, it is very important to know the behavior of the catalysts under high loading and […]

Windbreaks, Surprisingly, Could Help Wind Farms Boost Power Output by Emily Conover

Low walls in front of turbines could improve performance by 10 percent, simulations show. Windbreaks may sound like a counterintuitive idea for boosting the performance of a wind turbine. But physicists report that low walls that block wind could actually help wind farms produce more power. Scientists already knew that the output of a single […]

A High-Energy Density And Long-Life Initial-Anode-Free Lithium Battery by Ingrid Fadelli

Lithium-metal batteries (LMBs), an emerging type of rechargeable lithium-based batteries made of solid-state metal instead of lithium-ions, are among the most promising high-energy-density rechargeable battery technologies. Although they have some advantageous characteristics, these batteries have several limitations, including a poor energy density and safety-related issues. In recent years, researchers have tried to overcome these limitations […]

First Nanoscale Look At A Reaction That Limits The Efficiency Of Generating Clean Hydrogen Fuel by Glennda Chu

Transitioning from fossil fuels to a clean hydrogen economy will require cheaper and more efficient ways to use renewable sources of electricity to break water into hydrogen and oxygen. But a key step in that process, known as the oxygen evolution reaction or OER, has proven to be a bottleneck. Today it’s only about 75% […]

Better Solutions For Making Hydrogen May Lie Just At The Surface by Christina Nunez, Argonne National Laboratory

A clean energy future propelled by hydrogen fuel depends on figuring out how to reliably and efficiently split water. That’s because, even though hydrogen is abundant, it must be derived from another substance that contains it—and today, that substance is often methane gas. Scientists are seeking ways to isolate this energy-carrying element without using fossil […]
