Fuelled by Air - a New Energy
A case study from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) looking at a new type of rechargeable battery that could store five to ten times more energy than current batteries. The new type of battery is under investigation at the University of St Andrews with funding from the EPSRC.
The new batteries would be made from cheaper materials and store more energy than current rechargeable batteries. The case study discusses the impact that this new development could have on industry and transport, describing how the batteries differ and the encouraging results of the research project.
EPSRC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
