Cheap Energy Storage Within Reach

Quinones, in combination with advanced flow battery technology, may be the solution to the problem of energy storage in renewable energy systmes

It’s no secret the biggest barrier to widespread adoption of renewable energy technology is the absence of efficient, economical energy storage.  After all, when the turbines aren’t spinning or the sun isn’t shining, the clean energy isn’t flowing. (Excluding less mainstream technologies like tidal generation, geothermal and *gasp* nuclear). Perhaps the most prevalent argument against widespread alternative energy generation capacity development is the reality …
