Michael Marshak '02 and team develop innovation of renewable energy

Michael Marshak '02 and a team of researches at University of Colorado Boulder unveiled low-cost, high-performance battery chemistry that could one day lead to scalable grid-level storage for wind and solar energy and thereby help electrical utilities reduce their dependency on fossil fuels. The new innovation outlines two aqueous flow - or redox flow - batteries that use chromium and organic binding agents to achieve exceptional voltage and high efficiencies. The components are abundant in nature, offering future promise for cost-effective manufacturing.
