Regenerative fuel cell

A technology which is about to receive its first large-scale demonstration is based on a technology called 'Regenesys'. It converts electrical energy to chemical energy which is reversible and is capable of storing massive amounts of electricity.

National Power in the UK is constructing a 360 GJ installation with a rated power output of 15 MW which will feed directly into the grid.

In the opinion of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, hydrogen and regenerative fuel cells will be in widespread operation by the middle of the century. If global warming and security of energy supply issues simultaneously become critical then viable large-scale storage technologies will arrive much sooner.
