Chemical may turn flow battery into cheap energy storage container. Researchers, led by Michael Aziz of Harvard University, explored the possibility of storing energy from solar or wind sources by working with the flow battery and making it more affordable by using inexpensive chemicals.
A funky battery that’s made of natural materials and uses liquid tanks is being developed in a lab at Harvard. If the breakthrough makes it to market it could be a low cost energy storage option for clean power. Low-cost materials could make storing hours of power from a wind farm economically feasible.
