Flow Battery Breakthrough May Boost Green Energy Storage (Video)

Now that a Harvard team has found a way to produce them more cheaply, flow batteries could one day become key to storing the random energy produced from solar and wind power.

Flow batteries offer significant advantages over lithium-ion batteries. They have a much longer lifespan, can be fully discharged and recharged many thousand of times without damage, and have no danger of explosion or fire due to overheating. They also tend to be heavy and bulky, which makes them unsuitable for use in automotive applications. https://cleantechnica.com/2017/07/18/worlds-biggest-grid-scale-battery-will-german-salt-mine/

A new flow battery developed at Harvard University uses only Earth-abundant materials and is much safer, cheaper and greener than previous designs.

Harvard researchers have developed a novel flow battery and confirm the future potential of this technology.

ESS Inc, among several companies looking to commercialise a flow battery energy storage technology, has netted US$13 million in a Series B funding round from investors that include global chemical company BASF.

Rechargeable flow batteries could be cheaper solution to renewable energy storage

MIT researchers have engineered a new rechargeable flow battery that doesn't rely on expensive membranes to generate and store electricity. The device, they say, may one day enable cheaper, large-scale energy storage.

V-flow batteries are fully containerized, nonflammable, reusable batteries, using 100% of the energy stored. Presently, the largest V-flow battery is a 2MW/8MWh installed at the SnoPUD Everett Substation in Washington State, but the V-flow battery system being constructed in Sicily will be 24MW/96MWh.
