In the future, the growing amounts of solar and wind energy will need to be stored for dark or low-wind periods. One solution is redox flow batteries that can supply current for up to 2000 households. Several Fraunhofer Institutes are working jointly on these fluid batteries of the future. The researchers will present their large battery installation at the Hannover Messe (April 4-8, 2011, Hall 13, Booth C41). Green power is an unstable commodity. Photovoltaic plants rest at night, and wind...

New electrolyte mix increases energy storage by 70 percent Though considered a promising large-scale energy storage device, the vanadium redox battery's use has been limited by its inability to work well in a wide range of temperatures and its high cost. But new research indicates that modifying the battery's electrolyte solution significantly improves its performance. So much so that the upgraded battery could improve the electric grid's reliability and help connect more wind turbines and...
