The team developed a graphene-based aluminum fuel cell with an energy density of 545Wh/kg and a capacity of 130kWh. The system consists of an array of six 10-cell batteries in series. Test results show that 50A current discharge power can reach 3000W, peak power is expected to be as high as 4800W. The battery system is expected to be applied to a power source or a backup power source such as an electric car. In order to demonstrate its use, the lighting of a building including power supply of the graphene-based far infrared energy heating was shown.
