TEXEL signs an agreement with Arizona State University to move new battery technology towards commercialization in the US

STOCKHOLM, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The battery technology development company, TEXEL Energy Storage (TEXEL), and Arizona State University (ASU) have signed a cooperation agreement with the purpose to bring a new battery technology towards commercialization in the United States. The new battery technology that is originally developed by Savannah River National laboratory (SRNL), is potentially much more cost effective than Lithium-Ion batteries in large scale and is 100% circular.

Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL), one of US Department of Energy’s (DOE) seventeen national laboratories, and the laboratory behind the development of the Hydrogen Bomb, also considered as one of the world’s leading research labs on hydrogen related technologies, has developed a new battery technology, based on thermochemical Metal Hydrides. In 2018, SRNL and TEXEL signed an exclusive agreement with the aim to move the technology towards commercialization.

Recall Information for 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV Battery Fires [Video]

Chevrolet Bolt Chief Engineer Jesse Ortega announces a recall for select 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt EVs and shows how to limit the battery’s maximum state of charge to 90 percet as a precautionary measure. 

Video Transcript

JESSE ORTEGA: Hello. I’m Jesse Ortega, GM’s Executive Chief Engineer of the Chevrolet Bolt EV. I would like to share with you some important safety information about your vehicle. As you may be aware, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has investigated a few complaints the agency has received from Chevrolet Bolt EV owners about potential fires.

GM had already been investigating these complaints prior to the announcements, and cooperating with NHTSA on that investigation. The safety of our customers and our vehicles is the highest priority for my team and the rest of the team at General Motors and Chevrolet. Which is why today, we’re announcing a voluntary safety recall of certain 2017 through

GM recalls 65,000 electric Chevy Bolts over battery fire concerns

General Motors issued a recall for 68,667 Chevy Bolts after several battery fires were reported, according to The Detroit News. The vehicles affected by the recall were manufactured between 2017 and 2019. The automaker is working with US auto regulators to identify the causes of the fires, the report states.

There have been at least five incidents of fires involving Bolts with fully charged or almost fully charged batteries, the News reports. Three of those fires are under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle defects. GM has found two reports of injuries due to smoke inhalation. The batteries are manufactured by LG Chem at the South Korean company’s facility in Ochang.

While the investigation continues, GM said it has developed software that will limit vehicle charging to 90 percent of full capacity to prevent future incidents. Chevy dealerships have been tasked with updating their

The focus on renewable energy generation is one of the major factors propelling market growth.

The continuous rise in global energy demand, clean energy initiatives, and subsidies for power generation using sustainable sources is promoting the use of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. Moreover, renewable energy sources are clean, inexhaustive, less-carbon intensive, and more sustainable compared to fossil fuels. The governments are also undertaking several initiatives to mitigate GHG emissions, which are leading to the shift from conventional sources of energy to renewables to

Carmakers want to ditch battery packs, use auto bodies for energy storage

“It’s really starting to snowball”

Supercapacitors don’t hold nearly as much energy as a battery, but they’re great at rapidly delivering small amounts of electric charge. Greenhalgh says that they’re also easier to work with and were a necessary stepping stone toward accomplishing the same thing with a battery. The Volvo was a proof of concept that structural energy storage was viable in an EV, and the success of the Storage project generated a lot of hype about structural batteries. But despite that enthusiasm, it took a few years to procure more funding from the European Commission to push the technology to the next level. “This is a very challenging technology and something that’s not going to be solved with a few million pounds thrown at it,” says Greenhalgh of the financing difficulties. “We got a lot more funding, and now it’s really starting to snowball.”

This summer, Asp, Greenhalgh,

Elon Musk’s Battery Farm Has Been a Total Triumph. Here Comes the Sequel.

From Popular Mechanics

  • Elon Musk and Neoen are collaborating on the supersized sequel to Tesla’s existing battery farm in South Australia.

  • The Hornsdale Power Reserve has been a huge success, and the new battery is multiple times larger.

  • The renewable future will include a variety of sources to cover all times of day and conditions.

After the undeniable success of Elon Musk’s battery farm, the Tesla head honcho and the government of Victoria, Australia are following it up by building a new, much larger, 300-megawatt battery farm.

➡ You like Elon Musk. So do we. Let’s nerd out over his creations together.

As a refresher, in 2016, South Australia experienced a near total blackout after a crazy storm brought 80,000 lightning strikes and at least two tornadoes to the area. When a politician blamed the blackouts on the push for renewable energy, Musk and Tesla bet they could power the

China Must Commit to Battery Recycling in Electric Vehicle Boom: Greenpeace | Technology News

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China needs to step up the recycling and repurposing of batteries for electric vehicles in order to ease supply strains and curb pollution and carbon emissions, environmental group Greenpeace said on Friday.

Though the deployment of electric vehicles is an important environmental initiative, the manufacturing of batteries is energy- and carbon-intensive and puts the supply of key raw materials like lithium and cobalt under severe strain, the group said in a research report.

“We’re about to see a tidal wave of old EV batteries hit China,” said Ada Kong, Greenpeace East Asia’s senior programme manager. “How the government responds will have huge ramifications for Xi Jinping’s 2060 carbon neutral commitment.”

Greenpeace said 12.85 million tonnes of EV lithium-ion batteries will go offline worldwide between 2021 and 2030, while more than 10 million tonnes of lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese will be mined for new batteries.
