The Dead Sea is overflowing with salt, and what better use for it than storing energy for our ever-increasing demands?
Enstorage, an energy storage company, is taking advantage of that by installing a 50 kilowatt Hydrogen Bromine flow battery in southern Israel. At present, hydrogen is being extracted from water, while bromine is harvested from Dead Sea salt. This helps to keep costs low due to abundance of resources. Bromine for example, costs about $5000 per ton.
Furthermore, Enstorage’s proprietary conversion stack technology can store up to three times the amount of energy in existing grid storage batteries for the same size. The company’s flow battery can also be scaled by adjusting the storage tank size, an added bonus.
