New battery system uses renewable energy to produce hydrogen

Hydrogen Fuel Research - Stanford University

Researchers develop promising prototype battery Researchers from Stanford University have developed a new water-based battery that could be used to store wind and solar energy in an efficient and inexpensive manner. The battery is a prototype manganese-hydrogen system and can currently only generate 20 milliwatts of electrical power. Researchers believe that the battery system can be scaled up, however, making it useful for industrial purposes. Once it has been scaled up, researchers predict that it will be able to charge and recharge 10,000 times. Battery acts as a way to…

Mobile phone towers double as green energy stations

green energy mobile phone

The fuel cells convert excess electricity from the solar panels and wind turbines into hydrogen that is stored on-site. This way, they cut out fuel used to transport the stored energy to these remote areas. The hydrogen fuel is stored in a tank and delivered to the fuel cells to generate electricity when needed, for instance when there’s not enough wind or solar power.

New research may have found a way to develop better biofuel

Researchers have created a new “nano-reactor” that could catalyze hydrogen production. According to a new study published in the scientific journal, Nature Chemistry, researchers have managed to develop a new biomaterial, by hiding a modified enzyme inside a virus, which is capable of efficiently catalyzing the production of hydrogen. Dubbed the “nano-reactor,” the modified enzyme may result in a biofuel production process that is more efficient and profitable. The modified hydrogen-producing enzyme is 150 times more efficient than an enzyme that has been unaltered. Within the capsid, which is the…
