Electricity generated from renewable resources such as wind, solar, tidal or wave energy usually needs to be stored in a battery. While lead-acid batteries have long been the favoured and most economical option to use for this purpose, they are not environmentally friendly and can only be applied on a small scale. CSIR researchers are investigating redox flow batteries as an alternative for the large-scale storage of electricity.
