Most notably, the 64-kWh battery in the Niro EV provides the electric crossover with a range of 239 miles EPA. That’s actually quite a bit lower than expected and we’re not entirely sure why. For comparative purposes, the Hyundai Kona Electric, with the same battery pack, has an EPA rating of 258 miles.

41% solar conversion efficiency

It is unlikely CPV modules will be appearing on rooftops any time soon, but they could make a significant contribution to utility scale solar if they can provide far greater efficiency than conventional solar panels. Now the hard work of moving the new technology out of the lab and into the real world will begin.

Electric plane without moving parts

In order to maintain powered flight without any moving parts, the experimental aircraft uses an ion drive engine.

Ion drive engines operate under the principles of electroaerodynamics. Essentially, they use electricity to accelerate charged particles instead of using a propeller or jet engine to accelerate air. This is sometimes referred to as ionic wind.

China starts solid-state battery production, pushing energy density higher

Qing Tao Energy Development Co, a startup that spun off of Tsinghua University, one of the highest-ranking technical universities in China, claims to have deployed the first solid-state battery production line in the country.

Solid-state batteries are thought to be a lot safer than common Li-ion cells and have more potential for higher energy density.
