Professor Cody Friesen of Arizona State University, also the founder of Fluidic Energy, has developed fluidic batteries to smooth out inconsistent grid supply.
The battery is anode is made of zinc, its cathode made of air from the environment, and the electrolyte of liquid. According to Friesen, this kind of battery is cheap and easy to maintain.
The company also developed a technology called metal electrode architecture, which prevents batteries from being damaged when they are unevenly plated with metal.
