CUHK Engineering develops new redox flow batteries for extreme cold weather

Press Release, Energy, SDG7 Affordable and Clean Energy | 17 May 2022

// A research team led by Professor Yi-Chun Lu, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong's (CUHK) Faculty of Engineering, has successfully developed a new electrolyte that enables high power, long life flow battery applications at both room temperature and low temperatures down to –20℃.  The new flow battery achieves a high power density of 282.4 mW cm-2 and stability over 800 cycles (more than 1,200 hours) without decay at –20℃.  This work enables high power, long life redox flow batteries to be used in regions with cold weather or severe weather fluctuations, a significant step towards the practical application of redox flow batteries for grid-scale storage of renewable energy.  The breakthrough has been recently published in Nature Energy, one of the world's leading scientific journals.  //
