Sulfur Battery Promises Less Expensive Grid Scale Storage Solution

Sulfur Battery Promises Less Expensive Grid Scale Storage Solution

As with all battery research news these days, the MIT project is still in the laboratory stage. The sulfur-oxygen-salt battery under development currently has a useful life of 1500 hours — far less than the 20-year lifespan needed to attract commercial interest in the technology. The researchers have a long way to go yet, but the prospect of ultra low cost grid storage makes their quest worthwhile.
