A New Path to Market for Flow Batteries: Rent an Electrolyte

The newfangled arrangement lowers the upfront price of vanadium flow batteries, potentially making them more competitive with lithium. When you’re competing with mass-produced lithium-ion batteries, every bit of cost reduction counts. The dominant energy storage technology benefits from massive economies of scale. Flow batteries, a major class of alternative storage technologies, lack that scale, and […]
