An affordable way to store clean energy
Renewable energy sources can fluctuate in the amount of power they are able to provide - which is why batteries are used to temporarily store the energy. The problem with lithium ion batteries is their short service life, while redox flow batteries have, to date, been cost-prohibitive.
Economical energy storage for the electric car of tomorrow
A new production process with the aim of efficient and environmentally friendly future battery production. Researchers coat the electrodes of the energy storage cells with a dry film instead of liquid chemicals. This simplified process saves energy and eliminates toxic solvents
A Solid Future: New Opportunities enabled by Solid State Batteries
Solid state batteries have been considered as the avenue to the next generation energy storage solutions. According to IDTechEx's research "Solid-State and Polymer Batteries 2019-2029: Technology, Patents, Forecasts, Players" www.idtechex.com/solid.
Fusible and printable elastomer sensors for e-textiles
Integrating sensoric functions into textiles or elastomers is way more difficult than equipping machines because it requires movable or extensible sensors.
IDTechEx interviewed Antti Backman, CEO of Delektre. The company is involved in the printed and flexible electronics market, including a ring product using flexible, organic electronics to create a non-invasive optical sensing technique for a variety of physiological parameters. They are also involved in custom cabling solutions via sister company, New Cable Corporation.
Siemens and EDAG on industrial application of additive manufacturing
Siemens is intensifying its cooperation with the EDAG Group in order to further promote industrial applications of additive manufacturing and to make engineering and production processes more efficient.

Smart and flexible energy supply platform for wearable electronics
The aim of the project is the creation of an autonomous energy-supply platform. Based on the results of the project it will be possible to use a wearable without caring about recharging over its entire lifetime.
Hybrid OLED creates innovative and functional luminous surfaces
Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products.
Next-gen rooftop solar panels achieve record efficiency
Insolight's pre-production modules set a new efficiency standard of 29% for commercial solar panels. Results were validated by the Solar Energy Institute of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid setting the stage for large-scale industrialization.
