Energy storage is always an important issue and will be far more important in the future than at any time in the past. Storing large amounts of electricity cheaply, something that will be essential for making renewable energy the primary source, rather than just the supplemental source it is a current challenge. Such storage will make it practical to store energy from wind turbines and solar farms for later use. To achieve these, sodium-based energy storage systems have been identified as a key technology for the future as the lithium technology is more expensive. Existing sodium technologies work at high temperature, where molten sodium and molten sulphur are the anode and cathode respectively and they have never found widespread use. An alternative strategic approach used in this study is water-based sodium-ion intercalation cell (MnO2|NaOH|NaCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3PO4) for a promising low temperature energy storage device.
