Stationary storage by Tesla: The official premiere was scheduled for next week, but Bloomberg says it already knows what the Californian EV maker will present: a battery pack for home energy storage as well as a bigger version for commercial applications. The report further states that Wal-Mart and Cargill could be among the first customers for the stationary Tesla batteries.

Find New Roads details: The unusual concept Chevrolet brought to Shanghai is slowly revealing its being. What Chevy calls dragonfly doors are just one feature of the autonomous and all-electric concept car that comes equipped with four magnetic hubless wheel motors and wireless charging.

Lightweight solar EV: Indian Manipal Institute of Technology and Tata Power Solar now presented their prototype of a two-seater EV. The SERVe (Solar Electric Road Vehicle) is powered by the sun and weighs only 590 kilos – solar panels included.

Battery imaging: Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Brookhaven National Laboratory have visualised electrochemical reactions in lithium-ion batteries containing iron fluoride. To do so, they used a novel X-ray imaging technique.

QUANT e, Supercapacitors, LiFePO4, Fuel Cells.

QUANT-eFlow-cell to go serial: nanoFLOWCELL is currently working with Bosch, PROCEDA and others on two prototypes of the QUANT e, head of technology Nuncio La Vecchia said. The companies want to increase performance as well as prepare the flow-cell vehicle for homologation.

Inner visions I: Chemists at New York and Cambridge Uni have found a way to look into the inner workings of supercapacitors. Their technology is based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and offers a way to monitor the molecule’s behaviour and possibly enhance the performance of such devices.

Inner visions II: With the same aim but other means and objects of interest, researchers from Brookhaven National Laboratory monitor what is going on at the cathode of lithium iron phosphate batteries during charging to learn more about the destructive effects of quick charges.

Hydrogenase instead of platinum? Researchers from the Ruhr-University Bochum and the Max-Planck-Institute Mülheim an der Ruhr have developed a protective shield for bio-catalysts in fuel cells. The hydrogenases that serve as catalyst do not have direct contact with the electrode but are packed within a redox hydrogel making the use of inexpensive material viable.
