New York challenge to boost EVs and battery storage

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 13:26 -- Hugh Finzel

The New York Power Authority (NYPA) has launched an ‘Innovation Challenge’ to help spur development of a “backbone” grid-linked charging network across the state to expand the use of electric vehicles and energy storage.

The NYPA challenge has been launched in collaboration with the Urban Future Lab (UFL) at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering, and will advance Governor Andrew Cuomo’s clean energy and jobs agenda.

NYPA will invest US$250 million up to 2025 in order to install “a robust DC fast charging backbone infrastructure throughout the state”, so as to catalyse widespread EV adoption.

Zinc-based batteries— and their potential role in energy storage system applications— were in the spotlight at an international workshop in New York City hosted by the National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Batteries, NAATBatt.

The workshop at the City University of New York’s (CUNY) Advanced Science Research Centre at CUNY involved speakers from private industry, government and state organisations, all of whom are involved in designing, improving and eradicating problems in the manufacture and operation of zinc-based batteries.

The original voltaic pile, which used zinc and carbon electrodes was invented in 1800 by Volta, then improved in 1901 by Edison, is undergoing a renaissance, said Dr Mike McDonagh— technical editor of Batteries & Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Magazine, who attended the workshop.
