ENERGY BREAKTHROUGH - The Solid-State Battery that's Changing the Way We Think about Power

It's been highly anticipated by numerous independent researchers that soon, cleaner more efficient means of energy production would be disclosed to the public. Many of these investigators know that technologies such as petroleum and so-called clean technologiessome of these being nearly a century oldare not even close to being state of the art. Yet machinery such as wind turbines, clean coal, and nuclear energy plants are supposedly the best means of energy production we have two decades after the turn of the millennium.

Come on.

For several decades now, independent researchers have progressively realized that the energy industry is not the stagnant unproductive relic of history it appears to be. Instead, this industry has made leaps and bounds in innovation over the years. Yet instead of testing and mass-producing these developments the moment they are created, these corporate entities conceal and sock these inventions away never to be seen again. This, of course, leaves the public completely unaware that any progress has been made. According to research, this systemic secrecy exists because of the fascist policies of the energy industry.

Multiple sources confirm the fact that Big Energy functions very much like its own industrial mafia. In a way, this collection of highly wealthy corporations use their financial influence not only to develop state-of-the-art equipment but to manipulate the media and the policies of various governments for financial gain. These corporate entities do this to ensure that the energy industry maintains the highest profit margins while disregarding efficiency, public health, and safety as priorities.

This standard of corruption within the energy industry has halted the advancement of energy technology, causing this industry to stagnate at its preindustrial or industrial state (circa 1900 to 1930). And due to the successful manipulation of the media by Big Energy, the majority of the public has no idea how much they are missing out.

Yet even though Big Energy has its own apparent stranglehold over progress in energy production, their grip appears to be loosening. Developments such as the Searl Effect Generator, the water-powered engine, and the advent of cold fusion are creeping into the mainstream. These inventions are reported to have existed for a long while, yet due to the lack of public disclosure of these technologies, many people still consider them myths.

To add, there have been a number of open disclosures about recent developments in energy which have gained public attention. Though many truths have yet to be revealed, the technology which has been recently announced puts to shame most of the devices we are currently using.

For those who study the subject of alternative energy in-depth, the announcement of a solid-state battery may not be as attractive as other more advanced developments in energy production might. However, the advent of a newer, more efficient system of power storage does suggest a steady forward momentum in energy advancement.

Here is the website,, with a few details about what many have dubbed, the glass battery.

A Glass Battery That Keeps Getting Better? - A prototype solid-state battery based on lithium and glass faces criticism over claims that its capacity increases over time

Is there such a thing as a battery whose capacity to store energy increases with age? One respected team of researchers say they have developed just such a technology. Controversy surrounds their claims, however, in part because thermodynamics might seem to demand that a battery only deteriorates over many charge-discharge cycles.

The researchers have a response for that critique and continue to publish peer-reviewed papers about this work. If such claims came from almost any other lab, they might be ignored and shunned by the broader community of battery researchers, the same way physicists turn their noses up at anything that smacks of a perpetual motion machine.

But this lab belongs to one of the most celebrated battery pioneers today—and one of the inventors of the lithium-ion battery itself. John Goodenough, who at 96 continues to research and publish like scientists one-third his age, last year joined with three co-authors in publishing a paper that grabbed headlines. (Spectrum had profiled him and his battery technology the year before, following an initial announcement about his group’s new glass battery.)

Goodenough and collaborators claimed they’d developed a non-flammable lithium battery (whose electrolyte was based on a glass powder) that had twice the energy density of traditional lithium-ion batteries. They also published a graph that showed an increase in capacity over more than 300 charge-discharge cycles. (This increase, however, pales in comparison to the cell's at least 23,000-cycle lifespan.)

Maria Helena Braga, associate professor and head of the engineering physics department at the University of Porto in Portugal, has been one of Goodenough’s chief collaborators in the spate of recent papers around the glass battery.

“We are complex beings that happen between an entropy increase,” she says about the increased capacity claims—and any alleged violation of thermodynamics. “I don’t know why people make a big thing about this.”

She says their glass electrolyte is a ferroelectric material—a material whose polarization switches back and forth in the presence of an outside field. So charge-discharge cycles are effectively jiggling the electrolyte back and forth and perhaps, over time, finding the ideal configuration of each electromagnetic dipole.

“This is what happens as you are charging and discharging,” Braga says. “You are aligning the ferroelectric dipoles.”

She and collaborators published part of their argument in the journal Materials Theory earlier this year. Another part, she says, is under peer review.

Braga says their group has been working with companies looking to license the battery technology. Because no official announcements have been made, she said she could not reveal who the licensors are or what technology they might be developing with this battery.

She did say that large battery banks that might be spun off from this research stand to not only have higher capacity, but also be substantially lighter than lithium ions. Although, she adds, perhaps the greatest weight savings will come not from comparing one battery cell's mass with another. “The biggest difference would be that you don’t have to have the same stainless steel bunkers in each of the cells,” she says.

Sealing off each battery cell from each other—to reduce the risk of runaway fire—would not be necessary with a non-flammable battery. As would any extensive battery management system (BMS) that carefully monitors battery performance in EVs and other technologies that use large banks of batteries.

“The BMS is to control temperatures,” she says. “In our case, we don’t have to have that.” In fact, she adds, up to a point, rising temperatures only increase the electrolyte’s performance.
