The future is not what it used to be.
In the 1990s, the push for electric vehicles gained momentum in response to national security concerns over our reliance on imported fuels and tailpipe emissions.
Utility Scale Solar
Fuel Cell Systems
One of the most naturally persistent hurdles for the broader application of photovoltaic cells is how to store the electricity when the sun is not available. Batteries have been suggested as one solution, but they are notoriously bulky and impractical. A more elegant solution has been proposed by Dominic Gervasio of Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute.
