Sodium-Manganese Oxide Batteries; a Low cost Option for Mass Energy Storage?

7:37 AM MDT | June 10, 2011 | Alex Scott

Researchers at U.S. DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL; Richland, WA) and visiting researchers from Wuhan University (Wuchang, China) together have developed a technology for making low-cost, sodium ion-based batteries. The technology has potential applications for large-scale energy storage such as storing energy from the electric grid. The findings of the study were reported this week in the journal Advanced Materials.   Sodium ion batteries already are able to store large amounts of energy but until now have been limited by the...
