High temperature batteries such as NaS, ZEBRA and Liquid Metal Batteries (LMB), can be used for stationary energy storage. Increased use of intermittent renewable energy, calls for the development of such new devices that can store and release electric energy. Such batteries should utilise abundant and cheap materials, have an acceptable lifetime and stability and limited need for manpower during operation. The main advantage of the liquid metal batteries are their high power density, fast electrode kinetics and low voltage loss. However, issues of cost and safety must still be addressed.
Case studies will be presented describing experiences and potential challenges with the use of high temperature batteries for large-scale stationary energy storage as well as considerations that need to be made during scale-up and grid integration.
- Electrochemistry and fundamentals
- Cell design and fluid dynamics
- Grid integration
Note:The list above is meant as a guideline and should not be perceived as "limited to". Other relevant subjects are also welcome.
