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.
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
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.
EnergyH 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
