  3. 21: Low Cost, Optimized Redox Flow Battery Electrolytes, Novel Solid Ionic Conducting Membranes, and Rechargeable Air-Breathing Cathodes for Batteries for Stationary Storage

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    The projected doubling of world energy consumption within the next 50 years, along with resource constraints and environmental concerns about using fossil fuels , have spurred great interest in generating electrical energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar. The variable and stochastic nature of renewable sources, however, makes solar and wind power difficult to manage, especially at hi ...

  4. a: Cost Effective, Optimized Vanadium Based Aqueous Electrolytes

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Liquid electrolyte in RFB serves as a “fuel” to store electricity via redox reactions when flowing through electrodes. The liquid electrolyte determines the energy capacity and is a main component to the overall capital cost and technical performance. This is particular true for the all-vanadium RFBs or VRBs. The current electrolytes in vanadyl sulfate systems account for nearly 40% of the tot ...

  5. b: Cost Effective, Optimized Na+ and Multi-Valent Ion Conducting Membranes

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Nabatteries, including both NSBs and NMBs, are built upon a Na+ conducting solid state membrane. The most widely used is doped ? ?-Al2O3, a structure of alternating closely-packed slabs and loosely-packed layers that allows for facile transport of Na+ in elevated temperatures. For a satisfactory performance, the Na-batteries are built upon a thick solid electrolyte (?1.0 mm) and operated at 300-35 ...

  6. c: Low Cost, Robust, Rechargeable Oxygen Cathode for Metal-Air Systems

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Metal-air chemistry has the highest theoretical energy density due to the use of an inexhaustible supply of low-cost O2 discharging 4 electrons per molecule as a cathode. For example, lithium-air yields 13 kWh/kg versus the anemic 0.42 kWh/kg for lithium-ion[6], highlighting the tremendous advantage in energy density of metal-air over existing technology, and important for reducing the overall cos ...

  8. 22: Advanced Technologies and Materials for Fusion Energy Systems

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    An attractive fusion energy source will require the development of superconducting magnets and materials as well as technologies that can withstand the high levels of surface heat flux and neutron wall loads expected for the in-vessel components of future fusion energy systems. These technologies and materials will need to be substantially advanced relative to today's capabilities in order to achi ...

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    The plasma facing components (PFCs) in energy producing fusion devices will experience 5-15 MW/m2 surface heat flux under normal operation (steadystate)and off-normal energy deposition up to 1 MJ/m2 within 0.1 to 1.0 ms. Refractory solid surfaces represent one type of PFC option. These PFCs are envisioned to have a refractory metal heat sink, cooled by helium gas, and a plasma facing surface, cons ...

    Blanket systems including an integrated first wall facing the plasma are complex, multi-function, multi-material components that capture neutrons emitted from the burning plasma to both produce tritium via nuclear reactions with lithium, and extract the energy for efficient power conversion. Associated with the blanket are coolant and tritium processing systems, all of which have scientific and te ...
