DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have announced a new organic aqueous flow battery, which uses inexpensive and readily available materials. Energy storage system owners could see significant savings from a new flow battery technology that costs about 60% less than today’s standard flow batteries. The organic aqueous flow battery, described in a paper published in the […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers propose that an advanced manufacturing approach for lithium-ion batteries promises to significantly slash the cost of the most widely used type of rechargeable batteries while also improving their performance and making them easier to recycle. Researchers at MIT and at a spinoff company called 24M with a pilot manufacturing plant […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is announcing a new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery that uses an electrolyte that has more than two times the energy density of the next-best flow battery and may exceed lithium-ion. The new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery is described in the team’s paper published in Nature Communications. The zinc-polyiodide redox energy […]

A Harvard University team of scientists and engineers has demonstrated a new type of battery technology that could fundamentally transform the way electricity is stored for the electric grid.  The new technology could make power production from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar far more economical and reliable. The problem is between the […]

MIT researchers have engineered a new rechargeable flow battery that doesn’t rely on expensive membranes to generate and store electricity.  Instead the battery stores and releases energy in a system that relies on a phenomenon called “laminar flow”.  In a laminar flow two liquids are pumped through a channel, undergoing electrochemical reactions between two electrodes […]
