Novel bromine battery
Low-cost, high-capacity, rechargeable battery could one day enable widespread adoption of intermittent energy sources such as solar and wind
What’s holding back the renewable technologies now is not so much needing, say, a better solar cell, but rather needing a way to store the energy cost-effectively.

William Braff PhD ’14, now of Exponent, Inc., Martin Bazant of chemical engineering and mathematics, and Cullen Buie of mechanical engineering are developing a low-cost, high-capacity, rechargeable battery that could one day enable widespread adoption of intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
