Developing a cheap, scalable liquid battery to store renewable energy

February 14th, 2012 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The biggest drawback to many real or proposed sources of clean, renewable energy is their intermittancy. The wind doesn’t always blow, the sun doesn’t always shine, and so the power they produce may not be available at the times it’s needed. A major goal of energy research has been to find ways to help smooth […]
