      Engineered carbon gives a boost to ultracaps, Li-ion & Pb batteries

      EnerG2 initiated a factory in Oregon that will produce a resin used in the manufacture of batteries and ultracapacitors. Its engineered carbon material improves the performance of ultracapacitor makers who can expect 25 percent to 30 percent better energy storage capacity.  Lithium ion and lead acid batteries can get a three times increase in power output.

    2. GE, Nissan explore EVs for home energy storage

      GE, Nissan explore EVs for home energy storage

      On Friday, GE and Nissan signed a two-year research collaboration to speed up deployment of electric vehicles, an extension to an agreement announced last year ... The research will look at whether stored energy can automatically supply a house during peak times, when electricity rates are higher. GE and Nissan also said they will explore if solar panels can directly charge car batteries. Another area of research will model how large numbers of electric vehicles, which pull about as much power as a whole house, affects management of the grid for utilities.

    3. Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle

      Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle
      The project, which consists of two parallel transmission lines stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Virginia, could transport up to 6,000 megawatts of electricity that would provide power to 1.9 million households. The transmission lines would each extend 250 miles along the mid-Atlantic coast. The electricity carried by the lines would connect with the main electric grid at onshore sites in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
