Electrical energy is the most consumed form of energy in the entire world. However, the primary way to produce electrical energy is from fossil fuels. Incorporating renewable energy as a replacement to fossil fuels is becoming increasingly important. Unfortunately, direct incorporation of renewable energy leads to blackouts. An efficient method to store electrical energy is required to prevent blackouts and allow renewable energy to be incorporated into the grid. Of the available technology, Li-ion batteries have emerged as a potential candidate for this purpose. However, high cost and safety are concerns that prevent global-scale installation of Li-ion batteries. Redox-flow batteries have recently gained attention as a potential alternative to Li-ion batteries. Because of their design, redox-flow batteries are safer and inexpensive compared to their counterparts.
