    1. World's First "Aqueous Solar Flow Battery" Outperforms Traditional Lithium-Iodine Batteries

      World's First "Aqueous Solar Flow Battery" Outperforms Traditional Lithium-Iodine Batteries

      The scientists that revealed the "world's first solar battery" last year are now, following some modifications, reporting its first significant performance milestone. The device essentially fits a battery and solar cell into the one package, and has now been tested against traditional lithium-iodine batteries, over which the researchers are claiming energy savings of 20 percent.

    2. Liquid Metal Alloy Electrode Boosts Potential of Sodium-Beta Batteries

      Liquid Metal Alloy Electrode Boosts Potential of Sodium-Beta Batteries

      A new battery electrode designed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) combines liquid-state cesium and sodium to dramatically improve on the efficiency, safety and useful life of sodium-beta batteries (NBBs). If the technology is scaled up successfully, the advance could help build a smart electric grid that makes better use of renewables, such as solar and wind.

    3. Advanced Rail Energy Storage uses electric locomotives

      Advanced Rail Energy Storage uses electric locomotives

      ARES’ technology uses heavy rail cars that are pushed to the top of a grade using excess power from renewable energy plants or when electricity demand is low. Then, when the wind drops, the sun stops shining, or electricity demand rises, the rail cars are released back down the hill, generating electricity through regenerative braking.
