Harvard, Cambridge scientists improve durabiliy of redox flow batteries with anthraquinone

A research team has used a molecule known as 2,6-dihydroxy-anthraquinone (DHAQ) to improve the durability of organic aqueous redox flow batteries. They claim the molecule enables a net lifetime that is 17 times longer than past research has shown.


Open-source online platform shows how Europe may become energy-independent with renewables by 2050

European researchers have developed an open-source online tool that can identify areas where renewable energy and synthetic fuels can be cost-effectively produced, where hydrogen hubs could be built, and where grid expansion is needed. It can be used in different sectors across 35 countries.


Australian companies vying for $3.1 billion green hydrogen project in New Zealand

Fortescue Future Industries and Woodside have been selected as the two finalists in the race to develop what could be one of the world’s largest green hydrogen projects – a 600 MW facility in New Zealand.


Mobile nanogrids powered by solar, green hydrogen

Climate resilience solutions come prefabricated to generate clean, off-grid power for essential services and emergency response needs.


Cold-climate heat pump stays efficient in -12 C conditions

Lennox has developed the first prototype heat pump to achieve the US Department of Energy’s Cold Climate Heat Pump Technology Challenge’s standards, about a year ahead of schedule.


Portuguese industry group preparing licensing guide for onshore renewables

Portugal’s main renewables industry group is preparing a licensing guide for onshore energy projects. It aims to simplify and clarify all stages of the licensing process in order to expedite the implementation of solar and wind projects.


US startup unveils non-flammable batteries for EVs, storage

Alsym will produce its new batteries – made of readily available materials, without lithium or cobalt – for electric vehicles, stationary storage, and marine applications.


Renewables desalination for Neom City

The futuristic Neom City will be powered exclusively by renewable energy, but a co-optimization approach with the water sector will be crucial for desalination and sustainable water supplies. Saudi scientists have assessed different system configurations and determined that solar-plus-storage would deliver the lowest levelized cost of energy.


DEWA files patent for new redox flow battery tech

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority says its novel redox flow battery stack offers better electrolyte distribution, which could result in higher power densities and lower manufacturing costs.


PEM fuel cell with lower platinum content

A Chinese-US research group has designed a proton exchange membrane fuel cell with a hybrid electrocatalyst. The scientists said the device shows remarkable stability and low performance losses.
