The UK government has announced today its plans to invest in groups researching advancements in battery technology. Their aim is to push towards a Modern age method of energy storage and usage.
Everyday consumers are now able to generate their own energy through means such as solar panels and store it in batteries for later use. Traders will be able to purchase this stored energy and trade this directly with the national grid, helping to save billions of pounds for consumers.
Already much work has been invested in the area of battery research. Our April Paper of the Month focused on improving the capacity and conductivity of lithium ion batteries while another looked at improving the efficiency of a thermophotovoltaics system.
