Water-Based Organic Battery Could Provide Green Grid Storage

Water-Based Organic Battery Could Provide Green Grid Storage

The biggest advantage of the water battery is that the tanks can simply be made larger to store more energy while the membrane can be programmed to release more or less power over time. That allows the system to store all the energy solar cells or wind turbines can provide and control how much of that stored power is fed back into the grid, depending on demand. “Such organic flow batteries will be game-changers for grid electrical energy storage in terms of simplicity, cost, reliability and sustainability,” said Surya Prakash, professor of chemistry at USC.
