New MIT metal-mesh membrane could solve longstanding problems with liquid metal displacement batteries; inexpensive grid power storage

Green Car Congress

A battery, based on electrodes made of sodium and nickel chloride and using thea new type of metal mesh membrane, could be used for grid-scale installations to make intermittent power sources such as wind and solar capable of delivering reliable baseload electricity. A new metal mesh membrane developed by researchers at MIT could advance the use of the Na–NiCl 2 displacement battery, which has eluded widespread adoption owing to the fragility of the ?"-Al Al 2 O 3 membrane.

UK power crisis – entirely the fault of regulators and ministers

EV Info

Slashing gas storage facilities. No new nuclear power plants operational. Rush to implement Green Power. The UK has been a leader in deploying on and offshore wind turbines. Solar also generates a good share of the power generated when the sun shines. No Storage.

Nissan and Endesa collaborating to deliver vehicle-to-grid systems to market

Green Car Congress

This Vehicle to Grid (V2G) system consists of the Endesa two-way charger and an energy management system that can also integrate such off-grid, and renewable, power generation as solar panels and wind turbines. Electricity generated by solar panels or wind turbines can be used to charge a vehicle, to power the home or business, or to feed back to the grid.

UNSW, H2Store to develop hydrogen storage for renewables; residential and commercial P2G

Green Car Congress

Researchers at UNSW Sydney (Australia), with partner H2Store , an Australian start-up, have received a $3.5-million investment from Providence Asset Group to develop a hydrogen hydride storage system that could mean cheaper, safer storage for renewable energy for a range of applications, including residential. The team hopes to have a 5 kW home storage system prototype ready by the end of 2019 and a product on the market late in 2020. Hydrogen Hydrogen Storage Power-to-Gas
