From the Lab: The Energy Transition Needs Perovskite PV and Alternative Storage

Greentech Media:
Yes, cleantech innovators face an uphill challenge first to get to market and then to successfully compete with incumbent technologies. But when they do, the impact is substantial. Perovskites, organic flow batteries and hybrid solar-thermal photovoltaic systems have the potential to function as entirely new markets, rife with investment opportunities and real-world impact.

Accelerator grant offers a jolt to Michigan company’s battery innovation

Centered:
Many flow batteries contain the relatively rare metal vanadium, but Jolt’s batteries are considerably cheaper because they use an organic liquid for the electrolyte. The non-acidic, non-corrosive, non-toxic electrolyte also makes these batteries considerably safer than other kinds. Jolt’s batteries can produce about four times as much energy as other flow batteries at about a fourth of the cost.
