In today’s electrified economy, power conversion—converting electricity between different levels of voltage and current— is the vital link between sources of electric power and the loads they serve. The market for electric power converters is large and growing, with the LED power supply market alone projected to reach $10Bn by 2016.
The CUNY Energy Institute, which has been developing innovative low-cost batteries that are safe, non-toxic, and reliable with fast discharge rates and high energy densities, announced that it has built an operating prototype zinc anode battery system. The Institute said large-scale commercialization of the battery would start later this year.
The CUNY Energy Institute has been a leader in developing innovative low-cost batteries for grid-scale applications. Our batteries are safe, non-toxic, and reliable with fast discharge rates and high energy densities. Watch CUNY Energy Institute director Sanjoy Banerjee in this video for more information!
In today’s increasingly electrified economy, power conversion–converting electricity between different levels of voltage and current–forms the vital link between sources of electric power and the loads they serve.
The CUNY Energy Institute was awarded two prestigious grants from the Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy University Programs (NEUP).
The grid-scale energy storage solutions being developed at the CUNY Energy Institute are safe, non-flammable, and low-cost with a long cycle life.
The CUNY Energy Institute and Wisconsin University Energy Institute are pleased to host a short course this fall in thermal-hydraulics of nuclear systems headlined by distinguished lecturers from academia, government, and industry.
Last week, the CUNY Energy Institute showed off some of its most exciting work at the annual ARPA-E innovation summit and technology showcase. Members of the Energy Institute team were able to demonstrate zinc-nickel and cadmium-manganese dioxide cells built in our lab.
The United States is building its first new reactors in decades, but we may lack the human capital to keep even the current fleet running. How can we develop the workforce we need to meet an increasing demand for nuclear energy?
The Energy Institute is currently soliciting applications to fund approximately ten (10) two-year projects focusing on ‘Electricity Storage Research’, a key element of the Institute’s programs to enable wider deployment of renewable, but intermittent, energy sources and more efficient use of electricity generation, transmission, and distribution capacity.
