A group of researchers at MIT has designed a cheap and high-performance membraneless flow battery, that could provide the grid infrastructure to help unpredictable wind and solar energy produce a much higher portion of our energy needs.
HARVARD TECHNOLOGY COULD ECONOMICALLY STORE ENERGY FOR USE WHEN THE WIND DOESN’T BLOW AND THE SUN DOESN’T SHINE.Organic mega flow battery promises breakthrough for renewable energy
Batteries that had no problem at 80° produce only 50% power at 0°! Bad timing since engines are harder to start in winter & call for extra battery power! Look for: Cold Cranking Amps Reserve Capacity Powerframe Grid Technology –more durable & corrosion-resistant & better electrical flow. I use Powerframe Grid Technology batteries available AdvanceAutoParts & Carquest in my cars. Go to www.Powerframe.com; click on “Where to Buy”; bring coupon to @AdvanceAuto or Carquest & get $10 off.
Harvard researchers claim they have made a breakthrough in flow battery technology in the laboratory that could lead to lower-cost flow batteries that are nontoxic and last much longer than conventional lithium-ion batteries. http://ift.tt/2tlivSN
Researchers at ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich have built a tiny redox flow battery. This means that future computer chip stacks—in which individual chips are stacked like pancakes to save space and energy—could be supplied with electrical power and cooled at the same time by such integrated flow batteries.
