Honeywell announces new flow battery technology to work with RE generation sources

Honeywell has introduced a new flow battery technology that works with renewable energy (RE) generation sources such as solar and wind to meet the demand for sustainable energy storage.

The technology uses a safe, non-flammable electrolyte to convert chemical energy to electricity which is stored for later use. The battery technology delivers greater flexibility and extended duration for utilities. It stores energy that can be used when solar or wind sources are absent, in the event of power outages and when power grids are at capacity. It has the ability to store and discharge electricity for up to 12 hours (as against lithium-ion batteries which can only discharge up to 4 hours). The battery is designed with recyclable components and does not degrade over time and can maintain system performance, providing a reliable and cost-efficient system for 20 years.
