New aluminum battery with urea electrolyte could be a low-cost renewable energy storage solution



Kinda makes you wonder if they shouted “Urea-ka!” after the discovery.
One of the biggest missing links in renewable energy is affordable and high performance energy storage, but a new type of battery developed at Stanford University could be the solution.
Solar energy generation works great when the sun is shining (duh…) and wind energy is awesome when it’s windy (double duh…), but neither is very helpful for the grid after dark and when the air is still. That’s long been one of the arguments against renewable energy, even if there are plenty of arguments for developing additional solar and
