Stanford researchers have used nanoparticles of a copper compound to develop a high-power battery electrode that is so inexpensive to make, so efficient and so durable that it could be used to build batteries big enough for economical large-scale energy storage on the electrical grid -- something researchers have sought for years.


Comments, please.

But every battery needs two electrodes -- a high voltage cathode and a low voltage anode -- in order to create the voltage difference that produces electricity. The researchers need to find another material to use for the anode before they can build an actual battery.


Could be a few years yet before it's in production then.
