Campus Guest Lecture – Redox Flow Batteries As Candidates For Large-Scale Energy Storage
January 25 @ 11:10 AM - 12:00 PM
You are invited to join our joint Engineering and Science seminar January 25, 11:10AM to 12PM at TBESL 103. Dr. Wei Wang, who is a Chief Scientist in Energy Processes & Materials Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, will present his research on “Redox Flow Batteries As Candidates For Large-Scale Energy Storage”. Please try to attend this seminar should your schedule permits and encourage your students to attend.
Title: Redox Flow Batteries As Candidates For Large-Scale Energy Storage
Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are prominent candidates for large-scale energy storage because they offer high safety, decoupling of power and energy, long life
span, quick response, and potentially low cost. This talk will introduce this unique energy storage technology to the Tri-Cities community, and provide an overview
on its working mechanism, development history, major components, and the various chemistries used. The talk will also cover new redox flow technologies
developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Dr. Wei Wang is a chief scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). He is currently the technical lead of work in stationary energy storage research
and development. He is interested in investigation of the synthesis–structure–performance relationship in energy-related materials, and understanding
the underlying material chemistry and physics principles—particularly the development of new materials and novel energy technologies. Dr. Wang joined
PNNL in 2009 after receiving his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
