IIT Madras registers initial success with iron ion battery

Researchers from IIT Madras have for the first time fabricated a rechargeable iron ion battery using mild steel as the anode. The iron ion battery is cost-effective and has 54% capacity retention at the end of 50 cycles. It has 55-60% of lithium ion battery’s performance. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras researchers have for … Continue reading IIT Madras registers initial success with iron ion battery

Cutting down tailpipe emissions with e-vehicles

At nearly 55%, electricity generation in India is primarily through coal. So like in the case of the U.S and China, net reduction in carbon emission will not be much even when if there is large-scale adoption of electric vehicles in India. Still, cities and towns using electric vehicles in large numbers will see a reduction … Continue reading Cutting down tailpipe emissions with e-vehicles

IISER Pune makes novel anode for next-generation batteries in electric vehicles

Research at IISER Pune have synthesised a new type of anode material that offers promise of a battery that can be charged quickly and retain the charge for longer duration of travel, thus making frequent charging unnecessary for electric vehicles. The drop in charge even when the battery is charged rapidly is higher than graphite … Continue reading IISER Pune makes novel anode for next-generation batteries in electric vehicles
