In our group, as well as the study of power generation with the design and construction of polymeric solid electrolyte (PEMFC) fuel cells, we develop systems of accumulation of energy.
As you know there are many types of storage systems of energy, being able to classify these according to the type of energy stored in a system of
It is this type of energy storage systems, batteries of flow redox, which are developed in our research group.
Such systems are characterized by the use of a redox couple as accumulation of power system
In these systems, P, and Nb+1 are the species that are initially in the system and that splits for the first charging cycle.
Already in the 1990s our group developed a system of accumulation CR, together with Iberdrola, of a power of 2 kW and 20 kWh of capacity.
This experience has helped us to develop other accumulators as the so-called all - iron, in collaboration with the renewable energy based Resenergie consulting in
Also, our group has patented a battery where the generation and consumption of hydrogen is the torque necessary to redox as chain distribution in the system of accumulation, and the power of neutralizing the electromotive force that keeps the system.
