Rechargeable battery performance could be improved by a new understanding of how batteries work at the molecular level. Researchers at PNNL upend what's known about how rechargeable batteries function.
A new discovery by PNNL researchers has illuminated a previously unknown key mechanism that could inform the development of new, more effective catalysts for abating NOx emissions from combustion-engines burning diesel or low carbon fuel.
PNNL researchers are helping to better define the need for grid energy storage in future clean energy scenarios, as well as working to improve technologies for storing renewable energy so it's available when and where it's needed.
Findings in a new PNNL report show long-duration energy storage will be a necessity in decarbonizing the grid and recommends the planning and procurement process to identify those needs start immediately.
