DOE's LBNL to Hold Flow Cells Workshop in March 2012
February 14, 2012
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) will hold a Flow Cells for Energy Storage Workshop on March 7–8, 2012, at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. Flow cells combine the unique advantages of batteries and fuel cells and can offer benefits for multiple energy storage applications. The purpose of the workshop is to understand the applied research and development (R&D) needs and the grand challenges for the use of flow cells as energy storage devices. The workshop will begin with a series of speaker presentations discussing past and current R&D. Two separate breakout sessions will then be held to discuss flow cell phenomena and components.
