Power Storage

Sat Jul 30, 2016 8:24 pm

In Japan, batteries called flow batteries have been used for years to store backup power at industrial plants. Conventional batteries store energy in chemical form. With flow batteries energy is pumped into storage tanks, allowing still more chemical to be charged and pumped away, then pumped back into the active portion of the battery and drawn down as needed. The big advantage of this is battery “size” can be expanded by simply adding more chemicals and more storage tanks. In 2003, a small Island off of the coast of Australia installed a large flow battery to sop up and later release excess power from a wind farm. This type of technology already exists North America just needs to perfect it

Tesla was the first to sell stand-alone battery packs for energy storage but Mercedes Benz and Nissan are also getting on board with this

This is a good invention. A lot of Asian countries are technologically better than North America.

Would you be able to use old vehicle batteries for this type of storage
