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 anĀ 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 […]

Rechargeable flow batteries could be cheaper solution to renewable energy storage

Researchers at MIT have developed a battery that could bring us reliable and cheap large scale energy storage. Based on flow battery technology, the researchers took out the costly membrane and created a battery that has a power density that is an order of magnitude higher than lithium-ion batteries and three times greater than other […]
