Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

Today, a vast majority of the world’s oil is burned for transportation. Energy sources such as wind, geothermal and solar power, fluctuate continuously and can do little to reduce oil consumption unless the energy produced can be harnessed and stored.

Many experts believe the solution may lie in the development of an efficient, affordable energy storage network. Simply stated, energy storage – not energy generation – is seen as an important step toward the future.

A key part of current electric energy storage research will be influenced by the work of a consortium that hopes to develop next generation lithium batteries able to power electric vehicles for 300 to 500 miles on a single charge. This research may uncover major advances in larger-scale power storage for future electric grid applications. This next-generation battery is called Lithium-air.

On this episode of Building a Smarter Planet, Winfried Wilcke – Chairman of the Almaden Institute, and Senior Manager of Nanoscale Science & Technology at IBM talks about the research and development behind Lithium-air and why he feels it is so important to the future of energy storage.

Swoopo and Ebay are great auction sites that advertising investment 31 products for mere pennies in

I watched a documentary on a car being developed in Japan with something like 8 wheels each being run by its own battery powered motor. I wish I could remember the name of the company. Their objective was to build a car with the same power and speed to match gasoline engine cars.

I precisely wanted to say thanks yet again. I am not sure the things I would’ve achieved without the tips and hints revealed by you regarding such a question. This was a very daunting circumstance in my opinion, but observing a new professional manner you managed that made me to leap over joy. I’m happy for this guidance and hope you really know what a powerful job you have been putting in instructing the others thru a web site. Probably you haven’t encountered any of us.

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Very inspiring topic. Energy storage technology has not progressed as fast as other fields and it is in need of a major step forward. I see more and more wind turbines being built, a very capital intensive venture. But without a battery, it behooves one to see how wind powered energy can be used for transportation. The harnessing of tidal power is another major area of pursuit. Without question, storage is needed to complement all the power generation sources.
