    Electricity Basics from Energy Storage Class

    Electricity Basics from Energy Storage Class

    In this podcast, we will learn about the basics of electricity, from voltage to the speed of electricity. We will even get inside of the heads of Charles Coulomb and Henry Ampere. Did you know that 1A is about 6 x 10^18 electrons passing by in a second? And that that many electrons, besides being a lot is also called a coulomb and some batteries do charging by coulomb counting. How can anyone count that high?

    Lithium Chemistry Podcast

    Lithium Chemistry Podcast

    Upon finishing this podcast, you will forever remember the top three lithium-ion battery chemistries, which are LFP, NMC and NCA, also known as Lithium Iron Phosphate, Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide and Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide. We will cover more about lithium batteries, such as including the definition of specific energy, which is energy per weight, rather than energy density, which is energy per volume.

Great way to learn about Solar and Energy Storage on the go

I am always looking for a way to learn when I am doing other doings and this podcast is the only one I know that teaches technical PV and Energy Storage material from top experts and also is often funny and keeps me entertained. I need to know this stuff and its free! If only you could get NABCEP Credit for listening to a podcast.
