High-Value: Energy Uses - Description

  • Description
    • Use DUO2 as the core component of advanced energy systems
      • Fuel cell membrane
        • Produce electricity from fuels such as hydrogen, natural gas, and methanol
      • Rechargeable Battery
        • High-temperature/power-density: DUO2 replaces Pb, Li
      • Hydrogen Production
        • Direct light-induced dissociation of water by DUO2 to produce hydrogen
        • Thrust of new administration
