‘New and strange properties’ provide a boost to energy storage

MIT scientists have developed a class of liquid electrolyte with properties they say could open up new possibilities for improving the performance and stability of lithium batteries and supercapacitors.

Stitching together the grid of the future

A vision of a decentralized, renewable-powered electricity grid is being brought a step closer by scientists at the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Their project, Autonomous Energy Grids, aims to take an overarching look at the solutions that will power this grid of the future, and to fill any gaps that appear between them.

Wind, solar, batteries and carbon taxes in California and Texas

Researchers show how deploying 60 GW of renewables using various types of energy storage and carbon tax values in California and Texas increase CO2 reductions, while lowering electricity curtailment – but in vastly different amounts.

Solar brings in the big bucks for local governments

A new report from North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association shows the dramatic increase in tax revenue that solar projects bring. And for the future of development, this money talks, loudly.

The people vs. HB 6, Con Edison reaches 250 MW installed: pvMB 7/25/19
