CLAIMS:

1 . A composite structure for delivering electric power to an application requiring electric power comprising:

a container of a first material resistant to longitudinal and transverse bending forces imposed on the container by the application; and

a core of a second material resistant to compression and shear loads for accommodating a plurality of electric cells provided within said container

wherein the container and the core of the composite structure together form a structural member having resistance to shear forces, compression forces, tension forces, torsional forces and longitudinal and transverse bending forces imposed on said structural member by the application.

2. The composite structure of claim 1 wherein said core comprises elements comprising a honeycomb structure, the elements optionally being of conductive light metal or light metal alloy.

3. The composite structure of claim 2 wherein the elements have a laminated structure.

4. The composite structure of any one of claims 1 to 3 wherein tension and compression loaded members of a composite sandwich structure form upper and lower layers within the container.

5. The composite structure of any one of the preceding claims wherein said core is bonded or adhered to said container.

6. The composite structure of claim 2 wherein the honeycomb structure accommodates a plurality of electric cells, preferably close packed within said structure.

7. The composite structure of any one of the preceding claims wherein the container is in the form of a beam.

8. A method for constructing a composite structure for delivering electric power to an application comprising the steps of:

forming a stock of a first material;

forming said stock of first material into a container; and

forming a core of a second material for accommodating a plurality of electric cells within said container such that said composite structure forms a structural member having resistance to shear forces, compression forces, tension forces, torsional forces and longitudinal and transverse bending forces imposed on said structural member by the application.

9. The method of claim 8, wherein said core is formed as a honeycomb structure, optionally involving an expansion process or corrugation process.

10. The method of claim 8 or 9, wherein said core is bonded or adhered to said container.

1 1 . An electric device comprising a composite structure as claimed in any one of claims 1 to 7 as a structural member within said electric device.

12. The device of claim 1 1 selected from the group consisting of portable devices, mobility devices and electric vehicles.
