Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) have developed a new electrode material for an electrochemical cell which can efficiently convert excess electricity and water into hydrogen.
When demand for electricity increases, the electrochemical cell is reversible, converting hydrogen back into electricity for the grid. The hydrogen can also be used as fuel for heaty, vehicles, or other applications.
“The energy storage grand challenge, with its diverse research and development needs, gave rise to more opportunities for hydrogen,” said Dong Ding, Senior Staff Engineer/Scientist and Chemical Processing Group Lead at INL.
“We are targeting hydrogen as the energy intermediate to efficiently store energy.”
