View Resource Introduction to Alternative and Renewable Energy: Alternative Energy- New Directions

This module is intended for use in a college-level introductory course in alternative and renewable energy. The document covers new directions for alternative energy such as thermoacoustics, thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics, sun heat thermochemical storage, liquid metal batteris and fusion. Each technology is described in depth and useful graphics are included to illustrate the material. This...

View Resource How Batteries Work Activity

This resource provides an introductory activity on how batteries work. As the module states, "batteries have traditionally been made from one or more electrochemical cells?a package that contains chemicals needed to run a redox reaction, but separated such that exchange of electrons happens by passing through a circuit external to the battery." The activity covers concepts such as voltage, c...

View Resource Building a Fuel Cell- An Electrifying Experience

This learning activity from the Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC) explores the differences between batteries and fuel cells, and includes fuel cell schematics and further detail about the technology. The procedure of assembling a fuel cell is also outlined. Users must download this resource for viewing, which requires a free log-in. There is no cost to download the...

View Resource 3-D Microbatteries

A collaboration between three universities is working to create a battery that is capable of powering microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The work is especially important because no viable battery currently exists for these tiny devices. The three-dimensional battery will be a departure from current battery designs, which stack "positive and negative electrodes... like sheets of paper." As...
