PNNL Lecture - Redox Flow Batteries as Candidates for Large-Scale Energy Storage
- Date: 01/15/2019 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
- Location: Richland Public Library
Richland, Washington 99352
Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are prominent candidates for large-scale energy storage because they offer high safety, decoupling of power and energy, long life span, quick response, and potentially low cost. This talk will introduce this unique energy storage technology to the Tri-Cities community, and provide an overview on its working mechanism, development history, major components, and the various chemistries used.
The talk will also cover new redox flow technologies developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Presented by Dr. Wei Wang, Chief Scientist, Energy Processes and Materials Division
