      MIT Professor, co-founder of Liquid Metal Battery Corp. highlighted at TED conference

      MIT professor Donald Sadoway is building liquid metal batteries to try to separate power supply from power demand. The goal is to help the electrical power grid do a better job of storing energy, including renewable energy. Sadoway dreamed up the idea of combining magnesium and antimony, a process he diagrammed at TED with chalk on a blackboard.  [Curator: appears half way down the page.]

      Observation from ARPA-E Conference: Battery innovation is alive and well in the U.S.

      Battery giants in Japan and Korea have long dominated the world’s battery technology, and still do when it comes to small format batteries for laptops and consumer electronics. But at the ARPA-E event this week, a dozen or so battery companies and research labs showed off their innovations for batteries for electric vehicles and the power grid, signalling how battery innovation, at least at the prototype level, is alive and well in the U.S.

    5. Liquid Metal Battery status

      Liquid Metal Battery status

      In this formulation, MIT Prof. Sadoway explains, the battery delivers current as magnesium atoms lose two electrons, becoming magnesium ions that migrate through the electrolyte to the other electrode. There, they reacquire two electrons and revert to ordinary magnesium atoms, which form an alloy with the antimony. To recharge, the battery is connected to a source of electricity, which drives magnesium out of the alloy and across the electrolyte, where it then rejoins the negative .

      Liquid Metal Battery reports promising results
      Drs. Donald Sadoway and David Bradwell of MIT and colleagues report promising initial performance results for a high-temperature (700 °C) magnesium–antimony liquid metal stationary storage battery comprising a negative electrode of Mg (magnesium), a molten salt electrolyte (MgCl2–KCl–NaCl), and a positive electrode of Sb (antimony) in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

      Liquid Metal Battery Corp receives Licensing Executives Award
      MIT negotiated the IP terms of the initial sponsored-research agreement with Total S.A., and the subsequent license agreement with Liquid Metal Battery Corp. The combination of technology funding by a large entity, venture investment, and specific commercial diligence milestones allow each party to both manage risk and have the potential to extract value on a time horizon that fits that party’s business model and culture.

      Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?
      “We believe we can sell at under $300 a kilowatt-hour profitably once we are in mass manufacturing,” said Jay Whitacre, CTO of Aquion Energy … General Electric will open a 1MWh sodium metal battery plant in the U.S. next year. The batteries will get deployed for grid storage and powering locomotives next year ... Japan’s NGK has installed approximately 250 GW of sodium sulfur batteries for grid storage in Japan. Thirteen GW have been installed in the U.S.
