    Stanford Engineers Create an Aluminum-Ion Battery for Storing Renewable Energy

    Professor Hongjie Dai and doctoral candidate Michael Angell from Stanford University in California developed a nonflammable, low-cost, high-performance aluminum-ion battery that could provide an inexpensive storage solution for solar power or other forms of renewable energy for consumption during off hours. The battery’s main ingredient is urea (a material that is already industrially produced by […]
