Symmetry-breaking design of an organic iron complex catholyte for a long cyclability aqueous organic redox flow battery

Iron flies higher

Nature Energy, Published online: 02 August 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00882-xElectrolyte materials that consist of metals with organic ligands represent a promising direction for flow battery research. Now, an iron complex with the combination of bipyridine and cyanide ligands is demonstrated to have improved voltage and solubility over the commonly...

Symmetry-breaking design of an organic iron complex catholyte for a long cyclability aqueous organic redox flow battery

Nature Energy, Published online: 02 August 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00879-6The development of aqueous organic redox flow batteries suffers from the limited availability of high-performance catholytes. Here the authors design a metal organic complex catholyte material with a tunable redox potential, which offers promise for high-energy long-lasting...

Keeping it in the community

Nature Energy, Published online: 30 July 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00885-8Algorithms determine the effectiveness of battery storage, but have so far been designed for narrow techno-economic objectives with simplified assumptions of user needs. New research considers citizen preferences and develops six battery algorithms that support local economic...

Tackling voltage losses

Nature Energy, Published online: 29 July 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00880-zVoltage losses limit the performance of organic solar cells, yet their origins are not fully understood. Now, a theoretical model encompassing electronic state hybridization and thermal population of vibrational states explains the reduced non-radiative voltage losses in efficient...

Greenhouse-inspired supra-photothermal CO<sub>2</sub> catalysis

Nature Energy, Published online: 26 July 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00867-wLight-driven catalytic conversion of CO2 to fuels and chemicals presents a way to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, but new strategies are needed to improve performance. Here the authors find that greenhouse effects can be exploited in photothermal catalysts to enhance their...

A multi-country meta-analysis on the role of behavioural change in reducing energy consumption and CO<sub>2</sub> emissions in residential buildings

Nature Energy, Published online: 26 July 2021; doi:10.1038/s41560-021-00866-xBehavioural interventions can reduce energy consumption and hence carbon emissions among households. Khanna et al. compare the effectiveness of different types of monetary and non-monetary household interventions using a machine learning-assisted meta-analysis, and examine...
