An All-Liquid Battery For Storing Solar And Wind Energy

Making alternative energy cheaper and more reliable By Francie Diep You could call it a rainy-day fund. A team of MIT researchers has built an all-liquid battery prototype that’s designed to store excess energy from solar and wind power plants. When the sun isn’t shining, or the wind isn’t blowing, future versions of this battery could […]
