New #Graphene based electrode may solve #Solar energy storage challenge

Image result for New graphene based electrode may solve solar energy storage challenge

Inspired by an #American fern, scientists have developed a new #Graphene based electrode that could boost the capacity of existing solar integrable storage technologies by 3,000 per cent. The “groundbreaking” prototype created by researchers from RMIT University in Australia could be the answer to the storage challenge still holding solar back as a total energy solution.

The new electrode is designed to work with supercapacitors, which can charge and discharge power much faster than conventional batteries.Supercapacitors have been combined with solar, but their wider use as a storage solution is restricted because of their limited capacity.
