New cathode for sustainable, high-density lithium-sulfur batteries 

Shiv Nadar University researchers have synthesized sulfur-rich copolymers from petroleum and agricultural waste as cathode materials for Lithium-Sulfur (Li-S) batteries. IIT-Bombay, which is developing a Li-S battery prototype based on the technology, recorded an average Coulombic efficiency of 99.3% after 500 cycles at 1C, one hour rate of charge and discharge, for the cardanol/sulfur copolymer cathode containing 2.5wt% reduced graphene oxide (rGO).

IIT Bombay group suggests method of detecting early-stage discoloration in EVA encapsulants

A new, non-destructive technique has been proposed by researchers who say identifying early-stage discoloration in EVA encapsulants can help detect degradation in solar panels before power output is affected. The IIT Bombay group used an ultraviolet accelerated aging test during 34 days on three encapsulant samples.

US based Triton Solar buys stake in startup Ushva Clean, JV to launch electric car

Leveraging Triton Solar’s battery technology and Ushva’s experienced team from IIT Bombay, the strategic alliance aims to develop one-of-a-kind car with the longest travel range on a single charge and unique user experience.

SunPedal rides again, this time in U.S.

The SunPedal ride – a solar energy awareness initiative from India Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) alumni, made 1321 km journey from San Francisco to San Diego on a solar e-bike.
