      7 Energy Storage Disruptors to Watch

      According to market research firm IHS, the energy storage market is set to “explode” to an annual installation size of 6 GW in 2017, exceeding 40 GW by 2022. Such forecasts reveal a huge jump from an initial base of only 0.34 GW installed in 2012 and 2013. Here is a list of seven energy storage disruptors that are innovating and changing the industry as we know it:

      Flow-Battery Technology Promises Temperature and Volume Benefits - Electronic Design

      As another approach to rechargeable fuel cells, flow battery technology is similar to electrochemical battery cells. Yet the ionic solution (electrolyte) is stored outside the cell. It can then be fed into the cell to generate electricity. (The total amount generated depends on the size of the storage tank.) This approach allows for simple recharging by merely changing out the tanks—but the technology is still rather expensive. Recently,WattJoule Corp. and Battelle entered an agreement to enable the full commercialization of patent-pending, flow-battery electrolyte technology developed by a team at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
