New Grid Batteries for Renewable Energy

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

new-grid-blog-imageHow do you store renewable energy so it's there when you need it, even when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing? Giant batteries designed for the electrical grid -- called flow batteries, which store electricity in tanks of liquid electrolyte -- could be the answer, but so far utilities have yet to find a cost-effective battery that can reliably power thousands of homes throughout a lifecycle of 10 to 20 years.

Associated Environmental Systems, supports battery development worldwide and works with leading companies to engineer and manufacture innovative battery testing systems.  The ATP system allows researchers to test more cells by offering 48 channels in an 8 cu. ft. space.  The system allows for testing multiple chemical combinations with redundancy.  Being able to test coin cells in the lab and then swap out the coin holder for cylindrical holders with a simple click makes scaling a smooth transition.
