Researchers work to improve the capabilities of hydrogen fuel batteries

Research team aim to develop more cost effective hydrogen production methods for hydrogen batteries A team of researchers from the  have been developing a new way to produce hydrogen fuel in order to make hydrogen batteries less expensive. Hydrogen batteries are used to store gaseous hydrogen for later use and act in a similar fashion to lithium-ion batteries. These batteries could be useful for various purposes, but they have received relatively little attention because they are somewhat less effective than their lithium-ion counterparts. Funding from the Department of Energy allows…
