Disrupting the construction market

The construction sector is probably one of the less efficient sector, in productivity terms: constructions takes longer than planned, uses more resources… The Digital Transformation has not made a dent in this sector, with few, notable exceptions. ARUP, as an example, has shifted a good portion of its construction life …

Using rust to store energy

The increasing contribution of renewable energy to the grid comes hand in hand with the issue of energy storage. Renewable are discontinuous sources, now you get the wind, the sunlight, the tide, now you don’t. The production of renewable power does not necessarily match the power demand. So far the …

Towards Structural Batteries

If you open the hood of your car you’ll see, among many other parts, the battery. Take an electric car and you’ll see plenty of batteries. Researchers and engineers have been at work for a while to remove those batteries and embedding them into the car’s chassis and the bodywork …

6G does not exist, yet it is already here! – V

5. Power requirement All this increase in processing on the device side goes hand in hand with the increase of power demand, yet such increase, as pointed out in previous posts, is not manageable because increased power means: increased dissipation in form of heat (second law of thermodynamics); increased drain …

The future of battery is … no battery

We live in a world of energy, continuously fuelled by the Sun (and, in a minimal part, by radioactive decade). Energy as such is no good. What is needed is to transform one form of energy into another one. We use gasoline (chemically stored energy) and by combining it with …

Virtual Power Plant

Tesla makes electric cars and to make them they need to make batteries. Having perfected this technology it was no surprise when Tesla announced battery packs for the home that can be used to store excess power produced by solar panels on the roof to be used once the Sun …
