This paper describes the operating principle, performance, production and applications of the sodium/nickel chloride (the so-called ZEBRA) battery.
Currently, there is a good deal of interest in the possibility that fuel cells will make an important contribution to world energy supplies for both mobile and stationary applications. This paper provides an up-to-date review of fuel cell technology.
The issues surrounding the application of fuel cells for road transportation are evaluated. The advantages and disadvantages of the candidate fuel-cell systems and the various fuels are discussed, together with the issue of whether the fuel should be converted directly in the fuel cell or should...
This paper examines the development of lead–acid battery energy-storage systems (BESSs) for utility applications in terms of their design, purpose, benefits and performance. For the most part, the information is derived from published reports and presentations at conferences. Many of the...
Valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries with gelled electrolyte appeared as a niche market during the 1950s. During the 1970s, when glass-fiber felts became available as a further method to immobilize the electrolyte, the market for VRLA batteries expanded rapidly. The immobilized electrolyte...
The quality of life today is dependent upon access to a bountiful supply of cheap energy. For a sustainable future, the energy should be derived from non-fossil sources; ideally, it should also be reliable and safe, flexible in use, affordable, and limitless. This paper examines the present...
This paper reports the state of art on fuel cells technology, outlines the most significant results reached all over the world and summarises the strategies developed by researchers and producers to get the commercialisation of these systems. In particular, the authors have examined three...
In this paper the characteristics and performance of composite polymer electrolytes formed by dispersing selected ceramic (e.g. γ-LiAlO 2 , Al 2 O 3 , SiO 2 ) powders in poly(ethylene oxide)–lithium salt (e.g. PEO–LiCF 3 SO 3 ) matrices, are reported and discussed. Particular emphasis is...
