MSU Bioeconomy Institute Making Progress in Storing Renewable Energy
Finding more efficient ways to harness and store renewable energy is the goal of the Michigan State University Bioeconomy Institute in Holland, Michigan. Spartan researchers are creating a cheaper and more durable version of a redox flow battery, which can store energy from the sun and wind.
Currently in the prototype phase, the device could one day open the door to large-scale operations and home usage, bringing down energy costs. Tom Guarr is an MSU researcher and director of research and development at the Organic Energy Storage Laboratory at the MSU Bioeconomy Institute.
