The perfect add-on to paintable PV: FUTUREWATCH: The Paintable Battery

FUTUREWATCH: The Paintable Battery 06/30/2012 from Energy Refuge Battery technology keeps improving in terms of density and storage, but how about changing the very form in it which a battery is presented? This is what researchers at Rice University in Texas have done with the creation of a paintable battery solution that reinvents the whole concept. The rechargeable battery consists of spray-painted layers, each representing the components in a traditional battery. The research was carried out in the laboratory of materials scientist Pulickel Ajayan and it has the potential to turn any surface into a lithium-ion battery, which could be a real game-changer when combined with solar cells. Lead author Neelam Singh, a Rice graduate student, and her team spent a great deal of time formulating, mixing and testing paints for each of the five layered components: two current colle...
