"Anode-Free" Sodium Metal Battery

Vanderbilt researchers have developed a new "anode-free" battery architecture for sodium-ion batteries that provide energy densities in excess of 400Wh/kg, which is greater than the maximum theoretical energy density of a conventional lithium-ion battery.

3D Junction Bipolar Membranes: More Efficient and Reliable Electrodialysis

Vanderbilt researchers have developed a unique membrane material for more efficient and reliable eletrodialysis. By utilizing a 3D junction structure, the nanofiber bipolar membrane does not degrade or delaminate during high current passage unlike commercial 2D membranes that are currently available.

High Energy - Density Hydraulic Accumulator

Vanderbilt inventors propose an inexpensive and easy to manufacture hydraulic accumulator. The proposed hydraulic accumulator technology is intended for energy storage. It is superior to current alternatives in that it provides a simple, efficient and relatively cheap method for storing a large amount of energy in a relatively small volume and mass. One example of its application would be in regenerative braking of passenger vehicles (hydraulic hybrid).
