Due to the actual collapse of the Venezuelan grid, I have put together this article, entirely from the survivalist/prepper point of view. I will discuss different types of batteries you can use if the grid goes down, including my favorite, iron-nicke
If you or any of your loved ones live in California, be prepared for power outages during the upcoming fire season. The state's three largest energy companies have announced they will be turning off power during extreme weather or wildfire conditio
Charging almost instantly and offering massive power density, Nawa's innovative ultracapacitors are ready to make a mark across industries from automotive to power tools and aviation. And after raising more than US$10 million, this French company is
With Tesla's recent purchase of Maxwell Technologies, I thought it was a perfect time to take a closer look at the current state of batteries and supercapacitors.
Taylor Wilson was 14 when he built a nuclear fusion reactor in his parents' garage. Now 19, he returns to the TED stage to present a new take on an old topic: fission. Wilson, who has won backing to create a company to realize his vision, explains wh
At age 11, Taylor Wilson told his parents that he wanted to build a nuclear reactor in the family garage. His parents never guessed he would do it, but three years later Taylor made history.
The obvious drawback of solar panels is that they require sunlight to generate electricity. Some have observed that for a device on Earth facing space, which has a frigid temperature, the chilling outflow of energy from the device can be harvested us
Researchers at PSI have investigated a novel crystalline material that exhibits electronic properties that have never been seen before. It is a crystal of aluminum and platinum atoms arranged in a special way.
Tesla's Quest for Better Batteries
With the need for cleaner energy higher than ever before, could liquid fluoride thorium reactors be the solution?
The US military talks about two historical "offsets" where the US used military technology to outmatch a competing military capability.
Despite considerable efforts to stabilize lithium metal anode structures and prevent dendrite formation, achieving long cycling life in high-energy batteries under realistic conditions remains extremely difficult due to a combination of complex failu
ARPA-E-funded alternative z-pinch fusion which is being developed by Zap Energy.
This huge cost certainly makes the wind farm unaffordable, but it gets much worse. Under standard conditions a wind farm produces no power around 25% of the time, due to low wind conditions. Low wind periods of up to a week are fairly common, created
Nuscale and South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction are going to work together to deploy 60 MWe NuScale Power Module™ (NPM) worldwide.
The patrol vehicle chargers will help get stranded electric cars moving again.
General Motors CEO Mary Barra has just confirmed that the automaker is indeed readying an electric pickup truck to compete with the likes of the electric Ford F-150 and Rivian R1T.
Crystals Could Be the Answer...Scientists may have just found the perfect substitute for the inefficient and polluting gases used in most refrigerators and air conditioners.
Innolith AG, Swiss maker of rechargeable Inorganic Battery Technology, says they have the world's first 1000 Wh/kg rechargeable battery.
Homemade Solar Air Heater! - The "Screen Absorber" Solar Air Heater!. Easy DIY. Produces temps near 140F (with outdoor air in the mid 40's). design of collector is similar to the steel can/aluminum can solar air heater but uses a "screen absorber pla
"Gravity can be defined as the electromagnetic force that matter exerts on the Universe, on any dark energy, that causes a"Dark Energy Field Effect" or "Gravity".
Ryan Weed updates the work at Positron Dynamics at Space Access 2019. Positron Dynamics has completed the NASA NIAC study. They are applying for some Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants.
(Natural News) In order to conserve land, researchers proposed an alternative location for space-intensive solar energy farms. They wanted to set up floating solar photovoltaic arrays on the surfaces of the thousands of artificial reservoirs that pro
Uranium-233 is a fissile isotope of uranium that is bred from thorium-232 as part of the thorium fuel cycle. Uranium-233 was investigated for use in nuclear weapons.
Researchers have developed a first-of-its-kind device that can generate electricity from falling snow.
The adventure vehicles looks stunning in the city environment too.
The Kia Niro EV packs range and features, but can people get one?
Nuclear fusion holds untold potential as a source of power, but to recreate the colliding atomic nuclei taking place inside the Sun and generate inexhaustible amounts of clean energy scientists will need to achieve remarkable things.
Russia Has Captured Two-Thirds of the International Nuclear Power Construction Market
Volkswagen has already decided where to buy the lightest metal Volkswagen Group announced a new memorandum of understanding for long-term lithium supplies for battery cells with Ganfeng Lithium Co., Ltd. registered in Jiangxi (China).
