Energy transition: the battle promises to be tough on critical metals

Energy transition: the battle promises to be tough on critical metals

Imposed by the fight against global warming, the energy transition will shift the demand for fossil energy towards that of the metals essential for the growing production of electric vehicles and their batteries, wind turbines, particularly marine ones, solar panels and kilometers of electrical networks. As a result, the demand for metals will explode in …

This sand battery compensates for the major shortcoming of green energy

More and more researchers are interested in non-chemical batteries to support the ecological transition. To achieve our ecological objectives, it becomes essential to rethink the way we produce and use our energy. But it also means developing new ways to store it. Finnish researchers spotted by the BBC have installed the very first battery of …
