Fight For Competitive Broadband in Canada!

Picture 1

We hope that you will consider supporting and participating in this campaign. We believe that if the CRTC decision to allow Bell and Telus to decide whether or not to provide competitor access to broadband is not changed, prices for broadband and other next generation telecom services to all customers will spiral upwards, innovation and service will suffer, and business customers will have little or no power to protect their interests. Show Your Support!

$2000 Battery Can Power House for One Day

Popular Mechanics: Without a way to store their power, no number of solar panels will free a home from the electrical grid. Researchers at Utah-based Ceramatec have developed a new battery that can be scaled up to store 20 kilowatt-hours—enough to power an average home for most of a day. An easy sell for solar users, but it could also allow the grid-bound to stockpile energy during less expensive off-peak hours.

The new battery runs on sodium-sulfur—a composition that typically operates at greater than 600 F. “Sodium-sulfur is more energetic than lead-acid, so if you can somehow get it to a lower temperature, it would be valuable for residential use, Ralph Brodd, an independent energy conversion consultant, says.

Ceramatec’s new battery runs at less than 200 F. The secret is a thin ceramic membrane that is sandwiched between the sodium and sulfur. Only positive sodium ions can pass through, leaving electrons to create a useful electrical current. Ceramatec says that batteries will be ready for market testing in 2011, and will sell for about $2000.
