Driscoll Group contribute to EPISTORE

2 February 2021

EPISTORE is a new project under the EIC Pathfinder scheme with the aim of developing thin-film reversible solid oxide cells. The resulting pocket -sized device would be capable of delivering kilowatts of power, along with highly efficient storage of renewable energy. This new technology is therefore aimed towards applications where the size constraints/long-term storage requirements of batteries limit their practicality, such as off-shore renewable power generation and transportation.
