Only an insignificant share of lithium-ion batteries worldwide is recycled at the moment, despite the finite resources for raw materials such as cobalt. The German green start-up Circunomics wants to tackle these challenges with a cloud-based IOT-platform for the Circular Battery Economy.
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have built a new type of battery that combines the many benefits of existing options while eliminating their key shortcomings and saving energy.
Building information modeling (BIM) is a new form of technology that helps the construction industry with planning and management. As renewable energy grows as a primary focus for buildings, BIM offers a key way to enforce that sustainability.
A combination of new mechanical and thermal technologies could provide us with enough energy storage to enable deep renewable adoption, says US secretary of energy and Nobel laureate in physics, Steven Chu.
