“Countertop” Flow Battery Is Coal-Crushing Energy Storage On Steroids

“Countertop” Flow Battery Is Coal-Crushing Energy Storage On Steroids

When not in motion, the two electrolytes are stored in separate tanks, and that setup offers some huge advantages over conventional batteries for large-scale energy storage. The liquids don’t interact with each other, reducing the chance of unintended or accidental reactions that could lead to fire or other hazards. Hazards are further reduced if non-toxic liquids are at play, and flow batteries can sit idle for a long time without losing their charge, making them ideal for emergency backup.
