Amsterdam Arena gets self supported. The home stadium of Ajax Football in Amsterdam has been equipped with a sunroof. With an area of 7,000 square meters it is one of the largest Dutch rooftops supplied with PV.

Annually, the solar panels are generating approximately 930,000 kilowatt hours electricity. That equates to 10 percent of the current electricity consumption of the Amsterdam ArenA.

Expected: battery from SeaSalt

Energy - sustainable battery from seasalt

Energy – sustainable battery from seasalt

This battery from SeaSalt could be the cheapest and most sustainable battery for the storage of wind and solar energy.

The battery has only sustainable materials with sea-salt as most important component and carbon as electrode.

This clean battery is tested as prototype with more than 7,000 cycles turned. Read More

World’s first ‘SolarBattery’ runs on light and air

SolarBattery

This solar battery — a combination solar cell and battery — recharges itself using air and light

Let’s introduces the SolarBattery: Is it a solar cell? Or a rechargeable battery?

Actually, the patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is both: the world’s first SolarBattery.

In the October 3, 2014 issue of the journal Nature Communications, the researchers report that they’ve succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one SolarBattery hybrid device.

NEW: clean ‘battery’ Hydrogen Storage Solution

 hydrogen storage solutionEnergyH Project started an Indigogo campaign to raise funding for their Hydrogen storage solution.

They are convinced that Hydrogen is THE clean energy solution and their solution to store this renewable energy.

They need you to join by donating. EnergyH is a non-profit scientific project to leap the hydrogen storage gap for a bright energy future. Read More

NEW: Organic Battery for almost every renewable energy power facility

organic battery

The tanks of electro active materials can be made as large as needed — increasing total amount of energy the system can store — or the central cell can be tweaked to release that energy faster or slower, altering the amount of power (energy released over time) that the system can generate.

Scientists from the University of Southern California have developed an organic battery that contains no metals or toxic materials and it can be used in association with power plants.

A lot cheaper than the lithium-ion batteries.
