NRL breakthrough enables safer alternative to lithium-ion batteries

Another breakthrough !!!!!! (I really do not like this word)  This got my attention however:  "cycling cells more than 50,000 times in short duty-cycles with intermittent power bursts, similar to how batteries are used in some hybrid vehicles." Researchers at the U.S....

y 2020, renewable energy will be largest single source says IEA

I am going through some articles we forgot to publish. Some are a little out of date. We also had to withdraw two articles with threat of legal action, more on that latter. Some people do not like it when we question claims of more energy in that out. Kind Regards...
