The MC³ XPRIZE Carbon Removal Team

What better way to spend a hard lockdown in Victoria, Australia, and Sunway, Malaysia, than by submitting a proposal for Elon Musk’s $100 million XPRIZE in carbon removal. The team of researchers from Monash University (pictured above) has been awarded $250,000 from the Musk Foundation to continue their work in … [continued]

Energy-Dense Supercapacitors Based On Graphene

Researchers at Monash University, led by Professor Dan Li of the Department of Materials Engineering, have developed a graphene-based supercapacitor (sometimes these are called ultracapacitors) which can achieve a volumetric energy density similar to that of a lead-acid battery. Volumetric energy density is the ratio of the supercapacitors’ energy storage … [continued]

Graphene Supercapacitors — Next-Generation Energy Storage Now One Step Closer

This article has been reposted from Green Building Elements.An entirely new strategy for engineering graphene-based supercapacitors has been developed by researchers at Monash University — potentially leading the way to powerful next-generation renewable energy storage systems. The new strategy also opens up the possibility of using graphene-based supercapacitors in electric … [continued]

Printing Australia’s Largest Solar Cells

This article was originally published on the website of CSIRO. Scientists have produced the largest flexible, plastic solar cells in Australia – 10 times the size of what they were previously able to – thanks to a new solar cell printer that has been installed at CSIRO. The printer has … [continued]
