WattJoule Corporation, a developer of flow battery energy storage systems, has entered into an intellectual property licensing agreement with Battelle.
This agreement enables the full commercialisation of patent pending, flow battery electrolyte technology developed over the last several years by the research team at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). The redox flow battery is well-suited for storing intermittent, renewable energy on the electric grid. The technology can help balance supply and demand, prevent disruptions and meet the grid's varying load requirements.
