Here is our #10 with a variety of news in the field of self heating fast charging batteries, new applications for silicon as battery material in solar aircrafts and at the same time possible alternatives to silicon in semi conductor or other solar applications. As well as ways to combine AI with robots, cars... and humans to speed up materials discovery or improve mobility solutions. And also an interesting innovation to longer-lasting desalination device that produces cleaner water. Finally worth reading how a French energy company and a US car maker successfully cooperate in order to reduce grid cost and CO2 emissions... in Australia!
As always, we wish you a great reading and we will welcome any feedback.
