Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors
Posted in Batteries, Electronics & Computers, Energy Storage, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Energy, Products, GDM on Thursday, 01 April 2010
New large cell prismatic electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) from Ioxus (Oneonta, NY) are for transportation and utility applications and are lower in cost for the overall system design. The 1,000-, 3,000-, and 5,000-Farad (F) ultracapacitors are smaller in size, with increased energy and power density, compared to products of other industry players.

New Nano-Material Could Revolutionize Solar Panels and Batteries
Posted in Batteries, Electronics & Computers, Energy Storage, Solar Power, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Energy, Transportation, News, GDM on Tuesday, 08 December 2009
Tel Aviv University researchers have found a novel way to control the atoms and molecules of peptides so that they "grow" to resemble small forests of grass. These "peptide forests" repel dust and water — a perfect self-cleaning coating for windows or solar panels which, when dirty, become far less efficient.
