New fuel cell material can efficiently run backwards and store energy

Enlarge / Close-up of a hydrogen fuel cell. Vladimir Bulgar Science Photo Library Lithium batteries can easily compensate for short-term supply problems with intermittent renewable energy. However, they are not ideal for long term storage as they slowly discharge. They are also not suitable for large amounts of energy – to save more, you have to buy more and more …
