Just add water

March 27, 2009

Next week MIT will announce a new electrolyzer that is cheap, efficient, and works at room temperature.  So just by using a little water, electricity can be stored as Hydrogen, to be converted back as needed using a fuel-cell.

This could make it radically simpler and cheaper to store electricity than it is now with batteries.

The missing piece of the puzzle then is a much cheaper fuel-cell.
