Long may we say, “There is no silver bullet with which to solve climate change.” Behind the scenes there is a sequence of silver bullets concurrently solving each next problem or refining solutions we already know and deploy.
The Beyond Zero radio show interviewed Professor Michael Aziz from Harvard about a non-toxic, non-flammable and potentially affordable large scale flow battery intended to rebrand renewable electricity as dispatchable.
Professor Michael Aziz and his colleagues strive to rapidly develop better rechargeable battery chemistry for stationary energy applications (such as grid management) in a world with evermore cheaper access to solar photovoltaics and wind farming.
Professor Michael Aziz told our co-hosts: current rechargeable battery technologies are numerous but each specific technology fails in at least one of the following criteria; ‘toxicity and safety,’ ‘flammable or non-flammable’ and the ever important chestnut ‘affordability.’
The Beyond Zero radio show sought Professor Michael Aziz for a second interview following the recent announcement his colleagues are honing battery technology at both the anode and a cathode for inflammable safe affordability.
The Beyond Zero radio show is grateful Professor Michael Aziz joined us after the announcement of the first breakthrough his colleagues made in this topical technology and once again the Beyond Zero radio show is grateful Professor Michael Aziz joined us to discuss the announcement of the second breakthrough his colleagues made in this topical technology mere months later.
