Powerful, safe and a model for the circular economy, batteries could be the key to decarbonizing global transport and energy sectors. An expert explains.
While the combination of metals in a smartphone may vary, most smartphones can carry roughly 80% of the stable elements that are on the periodic table.
Blackouts due to climate change events are becoming commonplace. These tech innovations in energy storage can provide grid stability and eliminate CO2.
This report aims to advance the Global Battery Alliance’s 2030 vision to provide 600 million people with access to electricity via battery deployment.
Electric vehicles' batteries require metals like lithium. These can be recycled from existing batteries through bioleaching, using microbes to oxidise metal.
Only a small percentage of Li-ion batteries are recycled and in several well documented cases, the cobalt needed to make them is mined using child labor.
This white paper – published by the Global Battery Alliance with support from the World Economic Forum, White & Case, and SYSTEMIQ – presents a vision to transform the global value ch...

This White Paper addresses the safe and environmentally responsible management of LAB recycling. It provides a series of recommendations for policy-makers, describes best practices for th...
Scientists from the University of Michigan have created 'biomorphic batteries' that allow robots to store energy like humans.
A new study in Nature Communications, has worked out how to modify red bricks to store enough electricity to power devices, using nanofiber technology.
Deep-sea mining has attracted controversy due to concerns of potential damage to delicate ecosystems before scientists have had chance to assess what is at stake.
The worlds largest all-electric plane has just completed a half an hour flight in the United States. Could this be the future of short-haul air travel?
The connection between the battery driven green economy and the exploitative conditions under which its essential commodity – cobalt – is mined is well known. Here's what needs to change ...
