Electrochemical Flow Capacitor: A New Concept for Grid Scale Energy Storage
Prof. Yury Gogotsi, Director, A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, Drexel University

Professor Yury Gogotsi, ECCAP Symposium, AABC 2013Prof. Yury Gogotsi is Distinguished UniversityProfessor and Trustee Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University. He also serves as Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute. His Ph.D. is in Physical Chemistry from Kiev Polytechnic and D.Sc. in Materials Engineering from Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.

His research group works on nanostructured carbons and other nanomaterials. He has co-authored more than 300 journal papers and obtained more than 40 patents. He is a Fellow of AAAS, MRS, ECS and ACerS and a member of the World Academy of Ceramics.


Grid-level energy storage has emerged as one of the key technological challenges impeding the full integration of renewable energy technologies and grid resiliency. Due to the inherent instabilities of the grid, 100s of billions of dollars are lost annually across the globe because of power outages. Thus, grid energy storage offers the opportunity to dampen these effects and strengthen electricity markets on a whole.

Gogotsi team at Drexel University has developed a new technology for grid energy storage called the electrochemical flow capacitor (EFC). The EFC concept benefits from the advantages of both supercapacitors and flow batteries in that it is capable of rapid charging/discharging, has a long cycle lifetime, and enables energy storage and power to be decoupled and optimized for the desired application. This presentation introduces the EFC concept, and highlights:Prof. Yury Gogotsi at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference Europe  June 24 – 28, 2013

The key differences from alternative electrical energy storage systems

News from MRC.ORG.UA

Researcers from Drexel University have developed a recipe that can turn electrolyte solution into a safeguard against the chemical process that leads to battery-related disasters

Recipe for Safer Batteries — Just Add DiamondsResearchers described a process by which nanodiamonds — tiny diamond particles 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair — curtail the electrochemical deposition, called plating, that can lead to hazardous short-circuiting of lithium ion batteries.

Cleaning up electromagnetic pollution by containing the emissions with a thin coating of a nanomaterial called MXene

MXene is a nanomaterial that is both thin and light, but also has the unique ability to block and absorb electromagnetic radiation, which makes it the perfect for use as shielding in electronics devices.

 According to the authors, when electromagnetic waves come in contact with MXene, some are immediately reflected from its surface, while others pass through the surface but they lose energy amidst the material’s atomically thin layers.
