Batteries can provide high levels of power but only for a short period. Biogas plants are mechanically inert but can store energy over longer periods of time. So what happens when you combine the two options on-site, say on a dairy farm? This is what German researchers Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology are trying to find out. Can't wait to hear more!
Non-recylable end of life plastic is an under -utilised resource that is currently treated as a costly and challenging waste management issue, often dealt with through incineration or landfill. The thermal conversion chamber which operates in the absence of oxygen, so there is no burning as the plastics gasify. The synthetic gas can then be used for power generation or as a fuel in its own right (ie. hydrogen).https://www.powerhouseenergy.co.uk/technology/
Tesla’s iconic cybertruck considers a retractable solar panel that can boost its power for longer range. R&D has been improving the efficiency and durability of solar pv. There are works around flexibility solar material and even solar paint. Maybe the era of solar car might never come but solar technology makes EV possible with with cheap and clean fuel. So is solar/electric hybrid the way to go for countries like Australia?
