Liquid batteries could gain from new discovery
Posted: 23 January 2018

As we wrote in our MIndBullet in 2009, massive liquid batteries have the potential to easily absorb spare solar or wind power, and release it later to keep a whole city on the go, balancing out grid demand. If the technology could be made reliable, and efficiently scaled up.

Now MIT have made a discovery which promises to make grid-scale liquid batteries a feasible proposition. Perhaps big cities will be able to add these to their energy systems after all.

MIT discovery resurrects potential of molten salt batteries for grid level power storage
