In France, a unique new flexible and stretchable device, worn against the skin and capable of producing electrical energy by transforming the compounds present in sweat, was recently developed and patented by CNRS researchers from l’Université Grenoble Alpes and the University of San Diego (U.S.). This cell is already capable of continuously lighting an LED, […]

Microbial Hybrids: Connecting solar energy and electric vehicles via biobatteries

Microbial Hybrids: Connecting solar energy and electric vehicles via biobatteries

September 24, 2015 |

An end to EV range anxiety, endless battery re-charges, and the infrastructure cost of electric vehicles? In a word: biobatteries. Here’s the why and how. In the long-term, the advantage of molecules over electrons is that they store more energy with less weight than traditional electrical battery systems. When it comes to transportation, the longer the trip, the more […]

UK bacteria can generate electricity, improve bio-batteries for sustainable energy production

UK bacteria can generate electricity, improve bio-batteries for sustainable energy production

December 1, 2014 |

In the UK, the University of East Anglia is researching the rate of electrical transfer inside bacterial proteins to improve “bio-batteries” for portable technology such as mobile phones and laptops powered by human or animal waste. The study has found that the rate of transfer depends on the orientation and proximity of electrically conductive ‘stepping […]
