A key part of driving the adoption of renewable energy is driving costs downward, and by experimenting with new cost-effective materials for storage systems scientists continue to make important strides in this area. A team from Cornell University has put forward a compelling example of what this progress can look like, fashioning a 3D electrode out of low-cost aluminum for an environmentally friendly battery with a very long cycle life.
