A team of Australian researchers has developed metal alloys that are capable of storing electrical energy in the form of bound hydrogen, much cheaper than lithium batteries.
Alternative sources of energy are rapidly gaining popularity all over the world, but the system of efficient storage and storage remains the bottleneck in this area. However, scientists from the University of New South Wales have proposed a revolutionary solution to this problem.
After 20 years of research, the team managed to develop metal hydrides that bind well to hydrogen. The system they created uses incoming energy to produce H2, which is then absorbed by the alloys and is there until it is needed to generate electricity through the fuel cell.
