Fraunhofer Institutes researching giant batteries to store green energy

April 6th, 2011 by Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental Safety and Energy Technology

In the future, the growing amounts of solar and wind energy will need to be stored for dark or low-wind periods. One solution is redox flow batteries that can supply current for up to 2000 households.  Several Fraunhofer Institutes are working jointly on these fluid batteries of the future. Green power is an unstable commodity. […]
