Nikola Pushes Deeper Into Battery Electric Vehicles With Next Generation Battery Tech

November 19th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

The Nikola Motor Company dropped a bomb on the electric vehicle industry today with news of a pending acquisition of a team that has developed next generation battery technology. The news comes with claims of a cathode with 4 times the energy density of today's lithium-ion cells, lasts for 2,000 cycles, and at a cell cost of 50% less than today's lithium-ion cells


Solar+Storage Killer App From DR Microgrid (#CleanTechnica Exclusive)

October 16th, 2019 | by Charles W. Thurston

One of the stealth technologies that was unveiled at the recent Solar Power International trade show in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago is the plug-and-play solar+storage+nanogrid solution from start-up DR Microgrid, of Santa Ana, CA. It looks like a killer app because it is the only other system of its kind on the US market except that of Sonnen, which is more expensive, says DR Microgrid President AJ Perkins


Lithium-ion Battery Manufacturing Heating Up In India

July 28th, 2019 | by Anand Upadhyay

Interest in electric vehicles (EVs) is getting super hot in India. Having missed out on building its own manufacturing base for solar PV, India seems conscious about not missing the EV opportunity, especially for lithium-ion battery manufacturing (LIB)


GBatteries Leverages AI & Intelligence To Amp Up EV Charging Speeds

June 26th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

GBatteries has been working on a new EV charging solution that it believes will slash charging times while preserving the longevity of lithium-ion batteries. CleanTechnica connected with GBatteries' co-founder Tim Sherstyuk to dig into the solution that sounds too good to be true to see if its claims hold water


American Manganese Positions Itself To Lead The Charge Into EV Battery Recycling

July 16th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

American Manganese (AM) says it can retrieve 100% of the lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese and aluminum from batteries, like those used in plug-in vehicles, using technology it originally developed to process low-grade manganese ores. We spoke with American Manganese CEO Larry Reaugh about its roots in mining and how he believes it sets them up to lead the charge into plug-in vehicle battery recycling.


Charge EVs with Solar Power? Yes, You Can!

November 23rd, 2011 | by Charis Michelsen

Using clean energy to power an electric car is a good thing. If that clean energy comes from one’s own personal solar power system instead of the power grid, that’s even better. Japan’s GS Yuasa has developed and produced just such a system. The “PV-EV System” (Photo Voltaic - Electric Vehicle) is


Machine Invents New Li-ion Battery

April 6th, 2011 | by Nicholas Brown

Wildcat Discovery Technologies, which is a startup company from San Diego, California, recently discovered a new, higher-capacity lithium-ion battery chemistry using a method known as high throughput screening. This could boost storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries (used in electric cars and portable electronic devices) by over 25% and extend the driving range of electric vehicles or make the vehicles cheaper
