Dual membrane offers hope for long-term energy storage

A team of engineers and chemists have created a polysulfide-air redox flow battery with not one, but two membranes. The dual membrane design overcomes the main problems with this type of large-scale battery, opening up its potential to store excess energy from, for example, renewable sources such as wind and solar.
