PNNL researchers publish update on pancake-like sodium beta battery concepts

By / October 16, 2010

Over six months ago, Ann reported that PNNL researchers were starting to see some success in re-engineering the form of sodium beta batteries (NBB) from a cylinder-type of construction to a flat disc in which the components are stacked. Initial investigation showed that by changing the form, the performance could be improved by 30% and…

PNNL charged to transform large-scale energy storage

By / April 30, 2010

According to a Pacific Northwest National Lab press release, a team of researchers at PNNL and EaglePicher Technologies is developing a large-scale battery that could enable the widespread use of renewable energy sources by providing grid-scale energy storage. The work is part of an ARPA-E grant awarded to EaglePicher Technologies, a battery developer. Researchers argue…
