Energy Sources for the Future 640027

The search for new means of providing power includes a variety of static processes for converting heat to electricity; utilization of solar energy by photoprocesses; new electrochemical processes as conventional batteries, fuel cells and thermally regenerative systems; and dynamic engines operating at extreme limits. Most of the effort is directed toward military and space requirements, and adequate solutions for most of the problems appear likely. Immediate use of the new processes in vehicle propulsion seems unlikely, but developments are in sight which could ultimately have a large industrial impact.
