CUNY Energy Institute Researchers Develop Sustainable Battery
Researchers at The City College of New York, one of the colleges at Consortium member The City University of New York (CUNY), have announced the development of a rechargeable battery that will help drive the use of solar and wind power. The low-cost, high-energy density battery is based on abundant, safe, and non-toxic material. The battery is unique because it can achieve both high cycle life and high areal capacity, which is critical for building a practical battery that can support renewable power. The research was funded by an Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) grant from the Department of Energy and led by Sanjoy Banerjee, director of the CUNY Energy Institute.
