V2G-Sim 2014-021

The Vehicle-to-Grid Simulator (V2G-Sim) invented at Berkeley Lab provides systematic quantitative methods to address the uncertainties and barriers facing vehicle-grid integration (VGI). The model is scalable to simulate impacts and opportunities for any number of vehicles (from one to one million...

Virus-based Piezoelectric Energy Generation IB-3128

Researchers at Berkeley Lab have demonstrated that the piezoelectric and liquid-crystalline properties of a modified virus, such as a recombinant M13 bacteriophage (phage), can be used to generate electrical energy. Using piezoresponse force microscopy, they characterized the structure-dependent...
