Suitable applications can be found in local energy storage systems in smart grid scenarios. Due to the increasing energy production from renewable sources like sun and wind, a compensation of peak power fluctuations becomes necessary. This can be realised with the presented battery technology.
Two international patent applications for this invention have been filed. They are pub-lished as WO2013/045561 and WO2013/045567. First prototype cells have been realized and tested in the laboratory and several results are available. PROvendis is offering licenses for this invention to interested companies on behalf of the University of Muenster.
