Seawater Battery Key to Renewable Energy Storage

The Maritime Alliance
Wednesday, April 03, 2013

A battery that solves the load-leveling problem of renewable energy AND generates value-added by-products? Too good to be true?

It appears that Dr. Schubert, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and Director of the Richard S. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy may have done just that with the saltwater flow battery that he and his team have developed at IUPUI. Ideal applications as an add-on for wave or current power, off-shore wind farms or navy bases, the battery can be scaled up to become a "microgrid", yet because it uses "free" seawater, it is lightweight and easy to install.

Added bonuses? It has clean-water and hydrogen output potential.

Dr. Peter Schubert will be in San Diego April 10, 2013 to present his revolutionary approach on the latest battery technology.

The flyer has some additional details, including a product schematic and contact information.
