Researchers at UCF Create an Economical and Safe Zinc-Ion Battery That Uses Seawater as the Electrolyte

published: 2021-03-05 9:30 | editor | category: News
Scientists have been studying the idea of using the plentiful and salty seawater as an electrolyte for batteries since saline solution is an excellent conductor of electricity. Recently, a team of researchers working at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in the US has developed a new rechargeable zinc-ion battery that uses seawater as the electrolyte. Unlike the electrolytes in the mainstream rechargeable batteries, seawater has the advantage of being non-flammable and non-toxic. ...  more

TPC hosted the “2021 Chinese New Year Celebration” today, and will be expediting on digital transformation and smart grid construction, as well as cultivating a circular economy, as the new year arrives. Yang Wei-fu, Chairman of TPC, commented that the electricity usage is expected to hit new high this year, though the new units for the independent power producers, along with the three offshore wind farms and solar plants, will be continuously established, in order to ensure a stable supply of power. ...  more

Researchers at Pusan National University Unveil a PV Cell That Is Completely Foldable

published: 2021-02-23 18:30 | editor | category: News
Conventional c-Si PV cells are structurally rigid and fragile, so they can break apart when they are under extreme external forces. Furthermore, rectangular PV modules that contain c-Si PV cells can only be deployed on a flat surface such as the roof of a building. Scientists and engineers that are involved in the field of solar PV have therefore been working on flexible and foldable PV cells that could become renewable energy solutions for a wider range of applications. ...  more

Desire for Wind Power Supremacy Drives Denmark to Build Largest Artificial Island in History

published: 2021-02-23 9:30 | editor | category: News
As a country famous for its development of wind energy, Denmark has an advantage in obtaining additional sources of new energy because of its vast shorelines, despite being constrained by its limited landmass. As the E.U.’s new energy targets bring impending changes to the energy ecosystem, Denmark will now construct a massive offshore artificial island to create more new energy hubs, expected to provide tens of millions of households in Europe with electricity eventually. ...  more
