Re: Flow Batteries: The future of high-capacity energy stora

Hi Beemer Most membranes in redox flow cells consist of a polymer matrix with channels lined with sulphonic acid groups. These will facilitate the migration of most cations across the cell - in our case we used sodium but the cell could work with Lithium or Potassium. After I finished at National Po...

Re: Flow Batteries: The future of high-capacity energy stora

Use to work on these in mid 90's at National Power for load levelling so this is hardly a breakthrough and quinone/hydroquinone couple is as old as the hills. I'm sure things will have changed over the years but I would just like to qualify some of the statements. 1. Yes the bromine/bromide redox co...

Hi and good luck In a not too previous life we had a bike shop selling small cc motorcycles and mopeds (inc electric). We never did sell any of the electric scoots as the petrol equivalents were cheaper - or more correctly - less initial cost (£600 against £1100/£2500 for electric). Unfortunately, w...

And You Alfred I suppose what do you expect from rocking Altrincham on a Friday Night! When I turned up there were a couple of penquins at the door. I wondered how the h"£$% am I going to get passed them clad in m/cycle boots, jacket, lid, jeans and hoodie. Luckily they were just punters. Phew!...

Jon, just a thought - does a branny e-car require a running in period? I never thought about it until you mentioned the speed.

Have we got the beginnings of a new thread? I am sure there is a lot of scope to start a nice big argument here.

I "popped in" to their showroom on Thursday 24/09 but they couldn't talk too much as the shipment of cars had arrived that week and they were too busy organising deliveries (Thats what they said anyway - I'm sure it wasn't anything to do with me turning up in scruffy jeans and T-shirt). Th...

Thanks Ed et al for organising the event. - Usual last minute change of plan. I can now come down and I'll bring a few vehicles if anyone is short of an EV and wants to enter. (I know it’s not the same as running your own but sometimes where needs must!). - I'll be travelling down from Manchester wi...
