MIT: “Liquid batteries for utilities could make renewables competitive”, and it is Not Lithium-ion

MIT: “Liquid batteries for utilities could make renewables competitive”, and it is Not Lithium-ion

"Professor Donald Sadoway and Materials Processing Center Research Affiliate David Bradwell observe one of their small test batteries in the lab. The battery itself is inside the heavily insulated metal cylinder at center, which heats it to 700 degrees Celsius." (Photo: Patrick Gillooly; Source: MIT) According to new research conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society , renewable sources of energy such as the sun and wind could become economically competitive with traditional sources of energy via the use of “liquid batteries.” While MIT has made many announcements in the past of inventions of that could potentially be cheaper than traditional energy storage systems such as the lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries in use today, this is perhaps the most promising I have seen.
