Title: Recent advances in redox flow cell storage systems

Abstract

Recent dramatic advances made in membrane and electrocatalyst technologies as they relate to the iron chromium Redox system have brought this energy storage concept to the point where complete systems have been designed, built and tested. Several novel features have been conceived and incorporated into complete Redox systems that greatly enhance its ability to be kept in proper charge balance, to be capable of internal voltage regulation, and in general be treated as a true multi-cell electrochemical system rather than an assembly of single cells that are wired together. Recent data pertaining to the system-related features as well as the state of the technology of the Redox membrances are discussed. The technology status as it relates to the two application areas of storage for solar photovoltaic/wind and distributed energy storage for electric utility applications are also addressed. The cost and life advantages of Redox systems are covered.
