Energy storage: Improving batteries and supercapacitors

By | Electronics, Energy Storage | No Comments
The depletion of fossil fuels has created the necessity for alternative power sources, renewable energy sources are intermittent by nature. Therefore, the utilization of renewable sources requires energy storage devices for the usage of the electricity generated. Metal ion batteries (Na, Li, and K) and supercapacitors have raised as the most promising energy storage technologies. However, some aspect of these devices needs to improve like service lifetime, energy density, and safety. Read More
