Nature Energy, Published online: 06 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41560-023-01196-wConcerns about energy and transport poverty are critical to the net-zero transition but are growing in the wake of recent global events. This study presents findings from focus groups with the public and expert interviews in the United Kingdom on support for different policy...
Nature Energy, Published online: 02 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41560-023-01194-yLithium-ion batteries are prone to unpredictable failure during fast charging, known as lithium plating. Now, innovative testing protocols can quickly quantify lithium plating and inform battery design strategies to mitigate it.
Nature Energy, Published online: 31 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41560-023-01197-9Perovskite solar cells hold potential for space applications yet they need to withstand harsh space stressors. Now, researchers develop a low-cost and lightweight barrier layer of silicon oxide thermally evaporated atop the finished solar cell that affords protection against...
Nature Energy, Published online: 30 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41560-023-01195-xDirect seawater electrolysis is an approach to produce hydrogen from an abundant water source, but current catalysts face performance and durability challenges. Here Guo et al. introduce a hard Lewis acid layer on the catalyst surface that generates local alkalinity, facilitating...
Nature Energy, Published online: 30 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41560-022-01186-4The root cause of lithium dendrites during battery cycling is of fundamental interest. By performing operando microprobe experiments and statistical analyses, the authors report that lithium dendrites are initiated via nanoscale mechanical defects and can be manipulated...
