Sandia Researchers Find Energy Storage “Solutions” in MetILs

A flow battery is a rechargeable energy storage device that pumps a solution of charged metals dissolved in an electrolyte through a membrane to convert chemical energy into electricity. Flow batteries can be rapidly “recharged” by replacing the electrolyte liquid while simultaneously recovering the spent material for external recharging.

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have discovered […]
