While many outdoor athletes like to add a liquid energy supplement to their water, doing so can cause their hydration pack or bottle to retain that booster's taste and color, and to require more frequent cleaning. Infuze offers a solution, in the form of two products that introduce liquid pep down the line from the main water supply – I recently got to try both of them out... Continue Read
South Australia has recently put the world's biggest lithium battery into operation – but perhaps it should've waited. A local startup says it's built the world's first working thermal battery, a device with a lifetime of at least 20 years that can store six times more energy than lithium-ion batteries per volume, for 60-80 percent of the price... Continue Reading "World's first working th
Thanks to their better energy density and light weight, lithium-sulfur batteries hold a lot of promise as a potential successor to the time-honored lithium-ion batteries. But there have been growing pains, and the emerging technology has its own problems to overcome. Now, engineers have developed a new type of hybrid cathode for a lithium-sulfur battery, that seems to boast better energy d
A promising new study is documenting the long-term effects of a novel surgical procedure using ultrasound to reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension. The one-off procedure, called renal denervation, is hoped to offer patients an alternative option to taking hypertension drugs...

They've been used as a rubber additive, a carbon-capture medium and a bioplastic ingredient. Now, discarded eggshells may have yet another use. Scientists have determined that they could be utilized in an eco-friendly and inexpensive form of energy storage...

IKEA's research lab Space10 has crafted a miniature wooden village to demonstrate how communities could create their own circular clean energy system.  Read more
say goodbye grid - 'dendo drive house' frees homeowners from traditional sources of electricity. The post mitsubishi’s new energy ecosystem lets you power your home with your car appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Although we've seen a number of experimental wave-power systems in recent years, a new one is claimed to be less expensive and to incorporate fewer moving parts, while still remaining durable in rough seas. It's known as a Dielectric Elastomer Generator, or DEG for short... Continue Reading Simpler, cheaper renewable energy system uses waves to inflate rubber Category: Energy Tags:
This fuel cell-powered coaxial octacopter just stayed aloft for 70 minutes of continuous flight, while carrying a 5-kg (11-lb) weight. The record demonstrates the flight endurance capabilities of hydrogen-powered electric aircraft over their lithium-ion battery-powered brethren...

Lithium-ion batteries are the ones consumers are most familiar with, so it seems like the obvious choice to scale them up for grid-scale energy storage – as Tesla did with the world's biggest battery in Australia. But since lithium is relatively hard to come by, it may not be the best choice. Researchers at MIT have outlined a new design they call a "sun in a box," which stores energy as h
