Battery developer AES Southland just announced that it will deliver the world's largest lithium ion battery to Southern California Edison. The massive 400MW battery can provide 100MW of power for a total
A team from the Stanford School of Engineering has made a breakthrough in lithium-ion battery design that is expected to result in more stable batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and significantly
Last week Tesla announced plans to build a new large scale lithium-ion battery "gigafactory" within the next three years, and the automaker just revealed that it will require a massive initial investment
Tesla doesn't have enough lithium-ion batteries to keep pace with their booming electric vehicle sales. Although the car maker sold 5,500 Model S sedans in the third quarter, sales might have been stunted
Tesla and Panasonic just announced a new agreement that will allow Panasonic to expand its supply of automotive-grade lithium-ion battery cells to the EV manufacturer. The new agreement expands on the
If you can make a battery out of a piece of citrus, why not a crustacean? Scientists at Stanford University are taking a look at the nanostructure of crab shells to create better lithium-ion batteries.
As technology advances, gadgets and gizmos are becoming smaller and smaller. From medical devices to bee-sized robots, developments in engineering have made for incredibly tiny electronics. To accommodate
From cell phones to electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are the power pack of choice. They are capable of keeping large amounts of energy in a small space with relatively little weight, making them
Embedded electronic implants have long been confined to the realm of science fiction, but the development of a new stretchable battery could soon make them a reality. A pair of scientists have developed

Researchers Develop Safer Solid Electrolyte Lithium-Ion Batteries That Conduct Ions 1000 Times Faster
Most lithium-ion batteries rely on liquid electrolytes to conduct ions between a negatively charged anode and a positively charge cathode - however liquid electrolytes run into safety problems due to
South Korean scientists just developed the world's first imprintable and bendable battery - and it could pave the way for flexible mobile devices in the near future. According to the researchers, the new
The race is on to develop a longer-lasting rechargeable battery in order to greatly extend the range of electric vehicles, and a team of researchers from Rice University may have found a clue. The
Scientists from the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland recently made a breakthrough in the production of EV lithium-ion batteries by adding gold to the mix. The team previously discovered that an
According to a recent McKinsey study, the price of automotive lithium-ion batteries is expected to drop by thousands of dollars by the end of the decade - a change which could substantially increase the
Lithium-ion batteries are widely considered to be the 'next big thing' in electric vehicle power systems, but their storage capacity is still a cause for concern. That could be about to change though as
The rumor mill is hot this week with news that BMW and Toyota are about to announce a partnership to research the next generation of lithium-ion batteries for electric cars. If this partnership comes to
Range anxiety is one of the biggest hurdles facing electric cars today. For electric vehicles to truly become mainstream, batteries will have to provide a longer range and become much cheaper.
Though no official announcement has been made, a source close to Toyota has stated that the company will manufacture a hybrid with a lithium-ion battery "in the very near future." This will be the first
New York based Ioxus have developed a lithium ion ultracapacitor that could charge items in mere seconds.
In news that could affect everyone from laptop users to electric car drivers, Hitachi announced this week that it has figured out a way to double the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries -- the batteries
Though the obstacles to a clean energy economy are largely political, one particular technological challenge to this goal is the expense and capacity of storage batteries. The sun may shine strongly on a
Range anxiety continues to be one of the main reasons that electric cars have not taken off as fast as automakers would have liked. Nissan claims that this is one of the main reasons that sales of the
In the next few years electric cars are set to finally take a big jump forward with the arrival of several models that will have a driving range around 200 miles - much longer than today's models. Chevy
Just how much do we really want a flying car? If it looks as dangerous as the one Thorston Crijns built, some of us might think, “umm….maybe not.” On the other hand, one does have to commend Crijns
6 Ways the Tesla Powerwall is Changing the Energy Landscape Elon Musk has been trying to drive the adoption of solar power through his Tesla Motors and SolarCity companies. With growing car sales at
Back in 2013 Nissan introduced its second electric vehicle, the e-NV200 compact van. The small van is the perfect delivery van for an urban environment, due to its small footprint and its fully electric
The number of electric vehicles hitting the market continues to grow each year and with that comes the concern about what we'll do with all the lithium-ion batteries that power the EVs. General Motors has
What if you could power your iPhone from thin air? Making wires redundant was said to be one of Nikola Tesla's biggest dreams, a dream University of Washington researchers want to fulfill with PoWiFi.
Here in the U.S. you probably have a higher chance of seeing a unicorn than a small three-wheeled rickshaw, like the Piaggio Tuk Tuk, but in several countries around the world, small rickshaws are the
