12V Ni-MH energy recovery systems in new idle-stop minicars

Panasonic Corporation today announced that its 12V Energy Recovery Systems that use nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries are installed in the new idle-stop vehicles just rolled out by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi ...

Size matters as nanocrystals go through phases

(Phys.org) —Understanding what happens to a material as it undergoes phase transformations – changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas or a plasma – is of fundamental scientific interest and critical for optimizing ...

Electrochemical step towards a better hydrogen storage

Good metal-based systems for hydrogen storage cannot be developed without knowing how this element permeates through metals. Researchers at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw managed ...

Working the night shift on the moon

There's never a cloudy day on the moon. It's flooded with sunshine 24/7 during its two-week-long daytime, so it makes sense to use solar energy to power future lunar rovers and other devices. But each lunar day is followed ...

Lab drives toward the future with fuel cell EVs

Efforts currently underway at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are contributing to rapid progress in the research, development and testing of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

Testing artificial photosynthesis

(Phys.org) —With the daily mean concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide having reached 400 parts-per-million for the first time in human history, the need for carbon-neutral alternatives to fossil fuel energy has never ...

Development of handy fuel cell system

Researchers at AIST, Japan, have developed a handy, portable fuel cell system. While the developed system employs microtubular solid oxide fuel cells (microtubular SOFCs), a nanostructure-controlled electrode has enabled ...
