Abstract

Richard C. Heyser prepared this article for submission in Science magazine. The process of storing energy under equilibrium conditions loses work that could have been obtained directly from the source of energy. This is independent of the form of the energy and can be extended to the analysis of situations otherwise difficult to formulate in a common description, such as multiple energy conversions involving solar, electrical, chemicl, and mechanical storage.
