Breakthrough in storing and reusing renewable energy [Registered]

Two University of Calgary researchers have developed a ground-breaking way to make new affordable and efficient catalysts for converting electricity into chemical energy. Their technology opens the door to homeowners and energy companies being able to easily store and reuse solar and wind power. Such energy is clean and renewable, but it’s available only when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. The research by Curtis Berlinguette and Simon Trudel, both in the chemistry department in the Faculty of Science, is published in Science. “This breakthrough offers a relatively cheaper method of storing and reusing electricity produced by…
