Candle compound brings high density to grid-scale battery technology

Researcher scientist Ruozhu Feng with a novel redox flow battery developed at PNNL

As the world continues its shift towards renewable forms of energy like wind and solar, scientists see devices known as redox flow batteries as part of the solution to our storage needs. There is still come work to do in bringing current designs up to speed in terms of both performance and sustainability, but a new approach by scientists from the US Department of Energy tackles the problem on both these fronts by drawing on a compound commonly found in candles, which boosts energy density and lifespan compared to current designs.
