Smartphone app helps home owners calculate energy efficiency December 03, 2014 Smartphone app helps home owners calculate energy efficiency German research institute Fraunhofer IAO has developed a smartphone app to help home owners calculate the benefits of energy efficiency measures before investing in a property. Read more Lithium battery shortcomings led to Boeing 787 fire December 03, 2014 Lithium battery shortcomings led to Boeing 787 fire The fire on board a Boeing 787 jetliner at Boston airport occurred after one of the aircraft's lithium-ion battery's eight cells experienced an internal short circuit leading to full battery thermal runaway. Read more Compressed sensing improves solar cell defect detection December 03, 2014 Compressed sensing improves solar cell defect detection Scientists at the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have developed a method for detecting defects in solar cells using a technique called 'compressed sensing'. Read more French-German collaborators claim solar cell efficiency world record December 02, 2014 French-German collaborators claim solar cell efficiency world record A new world record for the direct conversion of sunlight into electricity has been set by a multi-junction solar cell that converts 46% of the solar light into electrical energy. Read more Yorkshire low-power SRAM IP company attracts investment funding December 02, 2014 Yorkshire low-power SRAM IP company attracts investment funding Sheffield-based low-power SRAM IP company sureCore Ltd. has received £1 million in Series A funding from Capital-E, Antwerp, Belgium, bringing total start-up funding to £2.1 million. Read more Daimler invests 100m euros in German battery expansion December 02, 2014 Daimler invests 100m euros in German battery expansion Daimler has revealed plans to spend about 100 million euros in coming years to increase production of lithium-ion batteries in eastern Germany. Read more Electrostatic potential technique harvests more of the sunís energy December 01, 2014 Electrostatic potential technique harvests more of the sunís energy Researchers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have taken a first step toward harnessing the energy lost from photovoltaic cells because they can only absorb and use a small fraction of light hitting the solar cells. Read more AVX' SMPS capacitor simulation software guides MLCC selection November 28, 2014 AVX' SMPS capacitor simulation software guides MLCC selection AVX has released a new version of its SpiCalci simulation software, an engineering tool that calculates performance characteristics and parameters for its switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors. Read more New electrolyte promises cheaper high efficiency magnesium-sulfur batteries November 28, 2014 New electrolyte promises cheaper high efficiency magnesium-sulfur batteries A research team from the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) established by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has developed an electrolyte for use in the construction of magnesium-sulfur battery cells. Magnesium offers higher storage densities than is capable with lithium. Read more Proton-conducting graphene membranes enhances fuel cell performance November 28, 2014 Proton-conducting graphene membranes enhances fuel cell performance University of Manchester researchers have found graphene, which is impermeable to all gases and liquids, can easily allow protons to pass through it. The discovery could revolutionize fuel cells because they require a barrier that only allow protons to pass through. Read more
