Researchers develop a promising new technology for grid-scale energy storage

An interdisciplinary team of researchers from Drexel University have reported the development of a new technology for grid-scale energy storage which could provide a fast, efficient method for storing energy on the electrical grid. This new technology, dubbed the "electrochemical flow capacitor", stores energy in the same way as a supercapacitor, but is much less costly to scale up for large, industrial applications.

Chemist explores nanotechnology in search of cheaper solar cells

Luke Hanley at the University of Illinois at Chicago received a $390,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to test methods of coating solar panel films using nanoparticles from a chemical group called metal chalcogenides. The inexpensive films could be wrapped over everything from vehicles to buildings to gain maximum sunshine exposure and produce electricity.
