Research into batteries will give electric cars the same range as petrol cars

April 6th, 2011 by Riso National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy

Li-air batteries are a promising opportunity for electric cars. “If we succeed in developing this technology, we are facing the ultimate break-through for electric cars, because in practice, the energy density of Li-air batteries will be comparable to that of petrol and diesel, if you take into account that a combustion engine only has an […]

Solid oxide fuel cell micro-combined heat and power plants being developed for the home

December 4th, 2010 by Riso National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy

A solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) produces electricity and heat with a high efficiency, which means that less carbon emissions are produced for each kilowatt generated.  The production of electricity happens with nearly no emissions of nitrogen and sulphur oxides.  SOFC have important attributes for a future climate-friendly energy supply. A SOFC is flat and […]
