Anesco and OXIS to Release Lithium Sulfur Battery Storage by 2016

National energy efficiency solutions company, Anesco is now working with the award-winning battery technology company, OXIS Energy, in order to advance the growing renewables market in the UK.

The collaboration will demonstrate the outstanding strengths of OXIS Lithium Sulfur technology and calls on Anesco’s expertise as a leader in the field of battery storage for commercial and residential renewable installations. The new battery storage units will be available for installation from 2016.

Developed in the UK, OXIS’ Lithium Sulfur technology offers many advantages, including enhanced safety and reliability, improved environmental impact and ease of install as it is the lightest battery technology available.

Adrian Pike, Anesco CEO, said “We’re delighted to be working with OXIS. The team has developed this innovative technology right here in the UK and we believe it has fantastic potential. As a company, we are always focused on bringing the latest technologies and methods of best practice to our customers and continue to be first to introduce and model how such innovations can work.”

He added: “Storing energy and alleviating the strain placed on the grid, particularly at peak times, is a critical part of creating an electricity network that will support the needs of customers - both homeowners and businesses - as we decarbonise the UK electricity network. The design of effective storage solutions supports the growth in new technologies, such as renewables, by providing the flexibility needed to be able to match generation to supply.”

According to Huw Hampson-Jones, CEO of OXIS, “The development of effective energy storage solutions remains a key driver in achieving grid parity. As the OXIS technology becomes commercially available, it will contribute significantly to grid parity of renewable installations such as solar PV and is a major shift in how energy is produced and consumed, as it reduces CO2 emissions whilst reducing electricity bills at the same time."

He added: “Storage systems using lithium ion technology, such as the much publicised Tesla Powerwall, are limited by a technology that only achieves small incremental improvements each year.  Such manufacturers will want to improve performance, safety and cost of their products, so we expect that they will also switch to OXIS’s technology in the next few years.”

This project complements the increasing number of customers adopting the revolutionary Lithium Sulfur technology – including Electric Vehicles, Defence and Marine applications.

Apple Music could put a austere aching on your iPhone battery

We’ve had a brace canicule to analysis out Apple Music, Apple’s song-streaming belvedere that launched Tuesday. It comes loaded with 30 actor songs that you can accept to on appeal with a quick seek or a appeal to Siri.
But all that best and tech ability may appear at a price, as some users are advertisement that the new Music app is killing their iPhone’s array life.
The claims of overheating are decidedly concerning, back that would advance that Apple Music is overworking users’ iPhones and auctioning a lot of ability into its processing. You should note, however, that this is accurate of basically any app that streams agreeable because the alive agency that your accessory is consistently alive to amount content. I’ve gotten a case of Hot Buzz from Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu in the past, and those apps would absolutely cesspool my array if I didn’t accept the buzz acquainted in.
It’s harder to say for abiding that Apple Music is any added or beneath of a array hog than any added alive app, but approved users are about absolutely traveling to apprehension a difference. If you wish to accumulate an eye on how abundant ability alone apps are using, you can go to Settings > General > Usage > Array Usage to yield a attending at which ones accept been cartoon the a lot of ability over either the accomplished 24 hours or seven days. If you apprehension that Music is acquisitive all the juice, actuality are a brace suggestions that ability accumulate your iPhone alive longer.
Cut the streaming
It’ll yield a little added work, but if you aren’t just browsing and apperceive which songs you wish to grab, you ability wish to yield advantage of Apple Music’s functionality with iCloud Music Library. This will download songs to your Library and accomplish them accessible for offline listening, which shouldn’t be any added of a cesspool than arena the music you already accept loaded on your iPhone.
Shut aggregate abroad down
If you apperceive that all you’re traveling to be accomplishing is alert to Apple Music, you can added a little processing ability by closing aggregate abroad you accept running. Just double-tap your Home button, and again bash up to abutting the added apps that are open. I don’t do this generally enough, and again I acquisition that I accept 40 or 50 apps accessible at the aforementioned time. And a lot of them run things in the accomplishments even if I’m not application them, so closing them down could cut down on that added cesspool while you’re agitation out.
Listen on your Mac
This is not the a lot of ideal fix for every situation, but if you’re just blind out at home, you can accept to Apple Music through the anew adapted iTunes.

3D printing lithium batteries become a reality

In the past few years, 3D printing technology has quietly come to our side, and we have been able to see the use of 3D printing technology created some amazing products. Because 3D technology impress us that has been using 3D technology to print a variety of items for the past 10 years. Now, it's been a reality to be able to  print batteries by using 3D printing technology.

In the past years, 3D printing battery has caused many problems. However this can be achieved currently, new ink and 3D tool now makes printing lithium-ion battery a reality. Technology Review recently visited Jennifer Lewis, Harvard University materials scientist, to see her progress on a 3D printed batteries, although it is in the early stages, but it seems that we will not wait too long time until we print out a pair of battery .

Lewis uses a technology, which uses a series of "functional inks can be cured into a battery and simple components, including electrodes, wires and antennas." These ingredients then deposited by high pressure extruder has a very high precision, and then forced out of the ink at room temperature. The material is then dried quickly to form a necessary part of the printing 3D battery only takes a few minutes. Now, the next step is to see how long they last.

Apple settle employee-poaching lawsuit with A123 System

A lawsuit that alleged Apple violated non-compete clauses after it hired five emplyees from A123 System have been settled by Apple.

A123 has agreed to abolish its complaint and abandon the appropriate to appeal, according to cloister abstracts filed Monday in the U.S. District Cloister for the District of Massachusetts. The agreement of the adjustment are confidential.

The companies aloft the achievability of clearing the case in March. At that time, Apple asked the cloister for added time to acknowledge to A123's motions back it was "exploring abeyant resolution of this matter," according to cloister filings.

Last month, Apple and A123 said in addition cloister filing that they were abutting to a accord but bare addition borderline addendum to complete a final adjustment agreement.

A123 sued Apple in February claiming it poached top aptitude from the Waltham, Massachusetts, aggregation to bureaucracy a array division. The batteries, A123 alleged, would be acclimated to ability the electric car that Apple is accounted to be developing. The accident of those workers, which included two key engineers, acquired A123 to shut down some of its capital projects, the aggregation claimed. The accusation added belief that Apple is alive on a vehicle.

After entering defalcation in 2012, a lot of of A123's business was awash to Wanxiang Group, a Chinese automotive allotment manufacturer.

Tesla upgrades power output of its home battery with the same prices

Tesla announced today thatit will upgrade its line of home Powerwall batteries to more than double their initial output with the same price.

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, this decision to boost the power output of the batteries followed some "negative" feedback after the Powerwall products were first announced.

"We actually took some of the negative feedback to heart, and I'm happy to announce we've dramatically increased the power capability of the Powerwall," Musk told investors at the company's annual shareholders meeting in Mountain View, Calif. today.

Musk said, the Powerwall batteries will go from having a two-kilowatt (kW) steady power output and 3.3kW peak output to a 5kW steady output and 7kW peak output.

It will keep the same price of the batteries: $3,000 for the 7kW/hour (KWh) daily cycle version and $3,500 for the 10kWh backup UPS version.

"The daily cycler is sort of more about economics or getting off the grid completely, whereas the backup UPS is just there to ensure your house has power if there's ever a power outage," Musk said.

Homeowners who've signed up for solar panel installations or homes that already have them will receive "priority" treatment for delivery of the new Powerwall batteries, Musk said.

"It doesn't have to be SolarCity," Musk quipped, referring to the largest U.S. installer of residential solar systems, of which Musk is the chairman. "SolarCity is, of course, preferred, if you like the best."

Musk explained the "preferential" treatment has to do with the fact that solar systems already have direct current to alternating current inverters, which enable the Powerwalls to be more easily installed.

"We're also going to be prioritizing delivery of the Powerwall to partners that minimize the cost to the end user," he said. "So that the net result is we're expecting people to be able to purchase and install the Powerwall for about $4,000."

The Powerwall batteries, announced in May, are about 51-in. x 34-in. x 7.5-in. in size. The batteries come with a 10-year warranty.

Up to nine Powerwall battery units can be daisy-chained together on a wall to provide up to 90kWh of power. The average U.S. household uses about 20 kWh to 25 kWh of power every day, according to GTM Research.

Tesla announced last year that it partnered with Panasonic to make its lithium-ion batteries in what it calls "Gigafactories," the first one of which is under construction in Reno, Nevada.
