Electronics pioneer Steve Molyneux has unveiled a new design that could help reduce the cost of solar power by as much as 30 percent.
The new device, which he has dubbed the Electronium, combines a highly efficient semiconductor with a lithium-ion battery that has the ability to store a huge amount of energy.
The battery can last for more than a decade and can store energy in the form of heat.
“The Electron is really interesting for energy storage, but we have found a way to get more energy out of a smaller package,” said Molyineux, founder and chief executive officer of The Molyyneux Group, a solar power technology company based in Palo Alto, California.
“You have the Electrons that you have in a standard lithium-sulfur battery, and you have an additional battery that is very much like a lithium ion battery, but that has been engineered to store more energy.”
The Electrons’ energy storage capabilities have been a focus of Molyaneux’s company for more that a decade, and his latest device could help bring the cost down even further.
“We think the Electorium could be a major contributor to the energy storage market in the next couple of years,” he said.
The Electorum is based on an integrated, high-temperature electrolytic cell that is made of an aluminum alloy.
The metal alloy is also used to make other components like the battery and the magnetic charger, Molyneses engineers said.
The device is also made of lithium-nickel alloy.
Electroniums can be made from lithium-silicate or lithium-polymer.
The lithium-steel alloy can be found in a variety of industrial products.
A nickel alloy is often used to provide electrical insulation.
Electrons are composed of electrons with electrons inside.
They have electrons inside, electrons without electrons inside and electrons that are either positive or negative.
The electrons are typically arranged in two different ways.
Positive electrons have a positive charge, while negative electrons have negative charge.
Molynes and his colleagues have been working on developing a battery that would store electricity with the Electrums unique properties.
The first commercial prototype, which is now being tested by the company, was a lithium metal battery that cost more than $20,000.
The company has been working with Moly, but Molyes team has been refining the Electrum’s properties, including how they could be used to store energy.
“What we have done is come up with a design that is so clean that it can store more than 40 percent of the energy that the typical lithium-sand battery is capable of,” Molyanes co-founder and chief scientist, Steven Ritter, said in a video that accompanied the announcement.
“That is a huge improvement over the conventional battery.”
The device is designed to be energy dense and can be used in conventional solar power systems.
The Electronum battery will be produced by a partnership between Molyines company and the University of Maryland in College Park.
The device could also be used for solar power applications that are already in use, such as batteries used to power mobile phones and other electronics.
“It will be a great step forward in the energy market,” Moulies co-founders and CEO, Steve Moles, said.
“It could be the technology that really makes a difference in the coming years.”
The company is hoping that the Electraum could help provide the low-cost and energy-efficient power that is currently used in the U.S. The company hopes to manufacture the Electromedium by the end of 2018, with production beginning in 2019.
