Used car batteries could power farms in the developing world
As part of a Circular Economy for electric vehicle battery systems, as the number of such vehicles increases rapidly, the need to find the best way to reuse and recycle vehicle batteries becomes just as intense.
'Deforming' solar cells could be clue to improved efficiency
Solar cells and light sensing technologies could be made more efficient by taking advantage of an unusual property due to deformations and defects in their structures.
Abnormal chest X-rays quickly processed by AI
New research has found that a novel Artificial Intelligence system can dramatically reduce the time needed to ensure that abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings will receive an expert radiologist opinion sooner, cutting the average delay from 11 days to less than 3 days.
Learnings from Battery and Energy Warwick University 4-5 Dec 2018
At "Battery and Energy" Warwick University UK Day One with about 100 delegates and 10 table top exhibitors.
Nuvve is a San Diegan company that provides the tools that facilitate 'vehicle to grid' (or 'v2g') services for electric vehicles, with a focus on the software aggregation platform rather than the hardware (bi-directional chargers).
The company is global and has received major investment from utilities like EDF Renewables.
A new battle of the currents takes center stage
This coming November 14-15 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, leading players in the battery and energy storage industry will compete to capture the audience's attention over what technology is set to dominate in the coming decade.
Connected Energy is gradually extending its working relationship with WMG to support ongoing R&D
Drug-producing bacteria possible with synthetic biology breakthrough
Bacteria could be programmed to efficiently produce drugs, thanks to breakthrough research into synthetic biology using engineering principles.
Honda to supply Power Manager units for UK energy management demo
Honda Motor Europe has announced it will supply its state-of-the-art Power Manager units as part of the EV-elocity consortium project in the UK. The project aims to demonstrate the business case for Vehicle-to-Grid technologies across a variety of UK locations.
Graphene girders could double the life of lithium batteries
New research has found an effective approach to replacing graphite in the anodes of lithium-ion batteries using silicon, by reinforcing the anode's structure with graphene girders. This could more than double the life of rechargeable lithium-ion based batteries and also increase the capacity delivered by those batteries.
Drug discovery could accelerate hugely with machine learning
The algorithm can accurately predict the interactions between a protein and a drug molecule based on a handful of reference experiments or simulations.
Electric delivery vehicle tech prototyped
A technology demonstrator for a new type of electric delivery vehicle which could make the courier industry greener and more efficient has been developed.
Clean energy stored in electric vehicles to power buildings
Stored energy from electric vehicles can be used to power large buildings - creating new possibilities for the future of smart, renewable energy - thanks to ground-breaking battery research.
Cancer cells detected more accurately with artificial intelligence
Cancer cells are to be detected and classified more efficiently and accurately, using ground-breaking artificial intelligence.
4.25 Million funding for battery and autonomous vehicle research
Business Secretary Greg Clark and Transport Minister John Hayes have announced a range of research funding which included a total of £4.25 million for a high energy battery research project, and an autonomous vehicle research project at WMG at the University of Warwick.
