PNNL recognized for transferring innovations to the marketplace
Date:12/20/2012

RICHLAND, Wash. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been recognized for creating technologies or processes that can store large amounts of renewable energy until it's needed, fight cancer and detect explosives, and then moving the innovations to the marketplace.

The Federal Laboratory Consortium announced today that the Department of Energy national laboratory in Richland is receiving three 2013 Excellence in Technology Transfer awards. The consortium is a nationwide network that encourages federal laboratories to transfer laboratory-developed technologies to commercial markets. With these awards, PNNL has been honored by the FLC more than any other federal laboratory, collecting 78 awards since the program began in 1984.

The 2013 awards will be presented April 25 at the consortium's annual meeting in Westminster, Colo.

Renewable energy storage batteries

Developing a technology that can smoothly integrate energy from variable and intermittent sources such as wind and solar power onto the electricity grid while maintaining grid stability has proven challenging. But PNNL researchers, with funding from DOE's Office of Electricity, recently made significant progress in improving the performance of "redox flow" batteries, which hold promise for storing large amounts of renewable energy and providing greater stability to the energy grid.

First developed in the 1970s, redox flow batteries have shown promise for renewable energy storage but have been limited in their ability to work well in a wide range of temperatures, their relatively high cost and their limited ability to store energy, otherwise known as energy density. The PNNL-developed system incorporates two novel approaches to overcome the limitations of previous generations of redox flow batteries. The result is a dramatically improved operating range, higher energy density and lower cost for vanadium redox flow batteries.
