ARPA-E grant money for home ES battery

A new boost for the much-discussed domestic storage sector has been announced by The University of Kansas. Its researcher, Trung Van Nguyen, is partnering with researchers from Vanderbilt University and fuel cell research and development business TVN Systems Inc. to develop a safe, reliable battery for home energy storage.

The three organisations will receive a three-year, US$1.72 million grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) of the US Department of Energy, part of a grand total of $43m the agency is currently investing in US energy storage projects.

It is hoped that the end result will be a unit that will store enough electricity to run an average home for 4 hours, and which can be securely buried in the back garden.
