The US electric car manufacturer is reportedly shifting to cobalt-free lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries for its utility-scale battery.
The company’s capacity utilization was 5% lower than in March as it prioritized medical oxygen supply over augmenting steel production.
A new report says the Indian States must develop plans to incentivize investments into the deployment of utility-scale battery storage—just as they did for solar.
Norway’s Glint Solar and the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute have developed an algorithm that is able to automatically calculate wave heights and wind directions at potential locations for floating PV arrays. It considers the geometry of the water surface as well as 40 years of data on wind conditions.
Developers now have until May 18 to bid for setting up the capacity in the Uttar Pradesh Solar Park. Technical bid shall be opened on May 19.
Using Normal, Illinois, as a … well, normal … case study, we look at how a roof’s latitude, pitch, and azimuth affect energy output.
The selected bidders shall set up wind-solar hybrid power projects to supply the generated power under a 25-year PPA. Bidding closes on June 8.
American Resources Corporation is developing a process to separate pure rare earth metals from lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles or power plants based on renewable energy. The technique is described as a two-zone ligand-assisted displacement chromatography (LAD) that is able to produce metals with high yields and purity of over 99%.
India ranks behind the United States and China in IHS Markit’s latest rankings of most attractive solar markets.
Graphite’s pivotal role in electric-vehicle battery technology is coming under increasing scrutiny. Graphite is almost exclusively produced in China, and while the processing of the mineral poses serious environmental issues, the alternatives appear costly. Ian Morse looks at what’s next for critical graphite supplies.
