Hydrogen Battery

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate an electrochemical energy storage device that releases hydrogen and electricity upon discharge. This concept has potential for low-cost energy storage in a renewable energy future characterized by low cost but intermittent electricity generation from solar photovoltaics and wind. The project will involve learning the basics of electrochemical energy storage, using a 3D printer, performing electroanalytical measurements with a potentiostat, and evaluating the efficiency and durability of these energy storage devices.
