Overview

The Encyclopedia of Electrochemical Power Sources is a truly interdisciplinary reference for those working with batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors, and photo-electrochemical cells. With a focus on the environmental and economic impact of electrochemical power sources, this five-volume work consolidates coverage of the field and serves as an entry point to the literature for professionals and students alike.

• Covers the main types of power sources, including their operating principles, systems, materials, and applications
• Serves as a primary source of information for electrochemists, materials scientists, energy technologists, and engineers
• Incorporates nearly 350 articles, with timely coverage of such topics as environmental and sustainability considerations

Meet the Author

Patrick Moseley PhD DSc graduated from the University of Durham, England. He worked for 23 years at the UK Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell, where he brought a background of crystal structure and materials chemistry to the study of lead-acid and other types of battery, thus supplementing the traditional electrochemical emphasis of the subject, and to the study of sensor materials. From1995, Pat was Manager of Electrochemistry at the International Lead Zinc Research Organization in North Carolina, USA, and Program Manager of the Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium. In 2005 he became President of the Consortium. He is also a director of Atmospheric Sensors Ltd. Pat has been an Editor of the Journal of Power Sources since 1989 and, together with David Rand, was a Co-editor of the Encyclopaedia of Electrochemical Power Sources published by Elsevier in 2009. In 2008, he was awarded the Gaston Planté Medal by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences

David Rand AM PhD ScD FTSE was educated as an electrochemist at the University of Cambridge. Shortly after graduating in 1969, he emigrated to Australia and has spent his research career working at the government’s CSIRO laboratories in Melbourne. In the late 1970s, David established the CSIRO Battery Research Group and remained its leader until 2003. As a Chief Research Scientist, he was CSIRO’s scientific advisor on hydrogen and renewable energy until his retirement in 2008. He has served as the Vice-President of the Australian Association for Hydrogen Energy. David has been the Asia-Pacific Editor of the Journal of Power Sources since 1983, and the Chief Energy Scientist of the World Solar Challenge since 1987. He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering in 1998, and received the Order of Australia in 2013 for service to science and technological development in the field of energy storage.
