MIT chemists developed a battery cathode based on organic materials, which could reduce the EV industry’s reliance on scarce metals.
MIT professor combines nanoscience and viruses to develop solutions in energy, environment, and medicine.
In a first, researchers have observed how lithium ions flow through a battery interface, which could help engineers optimize the material’s design.
The findings, based on a single electrochemical process, could help cut emissions from the hardest-to-decarbonize industries, such as steel and cement.
MIT graduate students in technology and policy aim to make an impact in resource-constrained communities through energy research and real-world application.
Antora Energy, co-founded by David Bierman SM ’14, PhD ’17, is commercializing a thermal battery that lets manufacturers use renewable energy around the clock.
Principal Research Scientist Audun Botterud tackles a range of cross-cutting problems — from energy market interactions to designing batteries — to get closer to a decarbonized power grid.
