MATERIALS: KEY TO NEW ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS

Current R&D efforts aimed at evaluating concepts and prototype components for new energy storage systems are highlighted here. Special plastics, metals and ceramics are required for the mechanical, magnetic, chemical and thermal energy storage systems now contemplated for energy conservation. Considerable materials research is also underway in battery development programs for electric vehicle propulsion and stationary energy storage for load leveling at electric utilities.
