Design and NanoEngineering of Microporous Membranes for Energy Storage

Project description

Better energy storage for low-carbon technologies

The swift increase in demand, production and use of eco-friendly renewable energy like wind and solar power has increased the need for better energy storage technologies that can be integrated into the power grid. Despite a high demand for such technologies, the existing technologies are often costly. This cost is usually linked to the high price of commercial Nafion membranes. The EU-funded NanoMMES project will develop and nano-engineer a low-cost high-performance alternative. To achieve this, the project will design microporous polymers, processing them and then combining them with redox flow battery chemistries, to produce an efficient and stable energy storage solution.
