Solid oxide fuel cell that stores energy could make the best of both worlds

A team at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has developed a thin-film solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that stores enough energy to continue operating for a short time if the fuel supply (typically natural gas or hydrogen) is interrupted. The SOFC uses nanostructured vanadium oxide ...
