Battery development may extend range of electric cars
It's known that electric vehicles could travel longer distances before needing to charge and more renewable energy could be saved for a rainy day if lithium-sulfur batteries can just overcome a few technical hurdles. View News Article (2014-01-10)

A new algorithm improves the efficiency of small wind turbines
In recent years, mini wind energy has been developing in a spectacular way. According to estimates by the WWEA-World Wind Energy Association, the level of development of the mini wind energy industry is not the same as that of the wind energy industry, although forecasts are optimistic. View News Article (2014-03-18)

Managing renewables intelligently
Although more and more of our electrical energy is coming from sources where supply is variable - whether from wind turbines, solar parks or biomass facilities - grid structures, industry and private households alike are not yet prepared to deal with the inevitable fluctuations. View News Article (2014-03-25)
