As the quest continues for new ways to store renewable power, making it a more competitive source of energy on a massive scale, the search for capable storage materials becomes more surreal.
Despite the growing popularity of solar and wind power, the two renewable technologies still suffer from one glaring weakness: both generate power at nature’s mercy.
Once they have finished powering electric vehicles (EVs), it may not be the end of the road for those big batteries, according to a new research project underway at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
As the consumption of power generated by unconventional sources grows, so does the need to store that power.
