Developing better batteries to provide renewable energy anytime, anywhere

Scientists are searching for new battery materials to help store renewable energy so we can use it when we need it.


Studies on lithium-particle batteries — the power hotspot for cellphones and about each bit of renewable energy source we utilize day by day — started at UC Berkeley somewhere in the range of 50 years back.

Today, batteries inquire about proceeds on grounds and at Berkeley Lab to make the following upheaval: less expensive innovation that can store the immense measure of renewable energy created each day, yet squandered in light of the fact that it comes irregularly or when individuals require it slightest.

Ravi Prasher, an extra educator of a mechanical building, and his associates at Berkeley Lab have spearheaded endeavors to utilize processing energy to find new materials for these batteries without bounds. At that point, his gathering integrates the materials and makes gadgets to test them in reality. Specialists are doing what they should: pushing toward a future where we can guarantee unfaltering, adaptable, and conservative clean vitality.

In his May 2017 talk at Cal Future Forum, Prasher, the chief of the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division at Berkeley Lab, portrayed the gathering’s procedure for finding new materials for cutting-edge batteries that will enable us to utilize sustainable power sources on request.
