Energy storage could be revolutionized by adding an atomic layer of water

We all want to make the switch to more sustainable energy sources (or at least the sane ones), but the problem is making it reliable enough to replace our current systems. Big part of that is creating better energy storage, which according to scientists could be achieved with good ol’ H2O. North Carolina State University researchers have published a paper on how layering materials with atomic-thin layers of water can improve storage and discharge capabilities. Veronica Augustyn, assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NCSU, says that the experiment is only the first step towards real-world application, but the findings are promising. The…
