The Next Generation of Batteries

A Cornell College research team is working on developing the next generation of batteries or battery alternatives — learn more about their solution as demand for batteries continues to increase with limited resources available.

“Right now we don’t have enough lithium and we can’t get enough lithium to make lithium-ion batteries to support a renewable energy grid based on solar and wind alone,” said Dane Markegard , a junior from Minnesota. “So, these redox flow batteries that we are looking into are essential to supporting a grid and getting power overnight and when it’s not sunny.”
