New “aqueous #solar flow” battery 20 percent more efficient than today’s lithium-iodine batteries

New “aqueous #solar flow” battery 20 percent more efficient than today’s lithium-iodine batteries | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

After debuting the world’s first solar air battery last fall, researchers at The Ohio State University have now reached a new milestone.

In the Journal of the American Chemical Society, they report that their patent-pending design—which combines a solar cell and a battery into a single device—now achieves a 20 percent energy savings over traditional lithium-iodine batteries.

 

The 20 percent comes from sunlight, which is captured by a unique solar panel on top of the battery, explained Yiying Wu, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Ohio State. The solar panel is now a solid sheet, rather than a mesh as in the previous design. Another key difference comes from the use of a water-based electrolyte inside the battery.

 

Because water circulates inside it, the new design belongs to an emerging class of batteries called aqueous flow batteries.

 

“The truly important innovation here is that we’ve successfully demonstrated aqueous flow inside our solar battery,” Wu said. As such, it is the first aqueous flow battery with solar capability. Or, as Wu and his team have dubbed it, the first “aqueous solar flow battery.”

 

“It’s also totally compatible with current battery technology, very easy to integrate with existing technology, environmentally friendly and easy to maintain,” he added.

 

Researchers around the world are working to develop aqueous flow batteries because they could theoretically provide affordable power grid-level energy storage someday.
