Engineers are realizing in order to for clean intermittent energy, like wind and solar, to be economically and practically feasible new high capacity energy storage techniques are needed.By creating these energy storage systems, a steady flow of energy even at then night or when there is no wind becomes possible.
To create highly efficient energy storage systems, increased pressures, elevated temperatures and more aggressive chemistries must be utilized. Because of this reality, the physical limits of traditional materials have been exceeded and efficiency gains have stalled in many different clean energy technologies like flow batteries, hydrogen generation and fuel cells.
To push these technologies beyond these limits, Ultramet CPT’s tantalum diffusion surface enables these technologies to run in environments that traditionally have been thought impossible. As a result, reach new levels of efficiencies can be achieved.
