Honeywell, Duke test new solar and wind flow battery

Honeywell International Inc., announced on Tuesday that it has developed a new flow battery technology that can flexibly alternate between solar and wind power but also store energy for use when neither is available.

The new technology is designed to give both greater flexibility and extended duration for utilities, being able to store and discharge electricity for up to 12 hours while lithium-ion batteries are limited at around four. It will be tested by Duke Energy Corporation at its innovation center in Mount Holly, North Carolina.

"As utilities and corporations seek cost-effective alternatives to coal-fired plants with long-duration energy storage solutions, they are switching to renewable energy targets that work around the clock to reduce carbon emissions ... we can implement this ... to meet growing energy storage demands while assisting companies in meeting their carbon neutral goals," commented Ben Owens, vice president of Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions.
