Stanford scientists revealed the manganese-hydrogen battery in a research paper published in the journal Nature on Monday. The battery has the ability to store wind and solar energy until it’s needed.
The prototype battery is three inches tall and generates 20 milliwatt-hours of electricity. Although the output is currently modest, the researchers are confident they can apply the prototype to an industrial-grade level that could allow the battery to be recharged up to 10,000 times. This would give the battery a decade-long lifespan.
New, manganese-hydrogen #battery splits water to store #renewable energy cheaply. Researcher sees cost below 1 cent/kWh. Potential missing piece in fight against #climate. @Stanford: https://t.co/nVYjINtnAP#hydrogenpic.twitter.com/mayGxHmVKS— Stanford Energy (@StanfordEnergy) May 1, 2018
