Solar Panel Stickers of Peel-and-Stick Thin-Film Solar PV Cells

Most solar cells are rigid. They must be deployed in stiff, often heavy, fixed panels, limiting their applications. So researchers have been trying to make solar photovoltaics in different shapes, sizes and materials. Stanford researchers have succeeded in developing the world’s first peel-and-stick thin-film solar cells. They are flexible, decal-like solar panels that can be […]

Electric cars currently in the market are limited by their range and charging times. It’s a well-known shortcoming of electric cars that they can only be driven short distances of the range of 50 miles per single charge. It would be much better either if the car could go longer without needing to stop, or […]

Most people consider switching to electric vehicles to save money on gas and contribute to a healthier environment. But “range anxiety,” the fear of being stranded with no power, was cited by 64 percent of consumers as a main detractor to buying an electric vehicle. Electric cars today typically can travel only about 100 miles […]

Stanford researchers have developed a Nanoparticle electrode for batteries could make large-scale power storage on the energy grid feasible. In laboratory tests, the battery electrode survived 40,000 cycles of charging and discharging, after which it could still be charged to more than 80 percent of its original charge capacity. For comparison, the average lithium ion battery can handle about 400 charge/discharge cycles before it deteriorates too much to be of practical use.
