Our current reliance on fossil energy sources depleting and global effects from their widespread use, make the management and control of energy a key issue for decades to come. Deviate from fossil fuels convertible demand requires a profound change in our habits, because renewable energy sources are mainly related to solar activity and are intermittent or diffuse. Conversion and storage are the priorities of this (r) evolution of energy. Among the modes of energy conversion, storage of electrical energy in chemical form (Electro-Chemical storage), we need the first demonstration Alessandro Volta (1801), is best suited to the needs of applications involving the storage mobility (automotive, electronics, aerospace, machinery, medical).
