Redox Flow Batteries as Candidates for Large-Scale Energy Storage
Event Location: Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Dr., Richland WA 99352
Event Date: 1/15/2019
Time of the Event: 7:00 p.m.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world. Redox flow batteries (RFBs) as 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. Wei Wang's 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. For more information about this seminar and upcoming seminars, call (509) 375-6871.
