A team of scientists at Berkeley Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division, and their private-sector partners (DuPont, Bosch, 3M, and Proton Energy), have been awarded more than $1.5 million from ARPA-E to research a novel flow battery system for storing energy on the electric grid. The Berkeley Lab researchers are Venkat Srinivasan, Vince Battaglia, and Adam Weber of EETD.

EETD is also a subawardee in a project titled "Innovative Building-Integrated Ventilation Enthalpy Recovery." Philip Haves will participate with Architectural Applications, the prime contractor.
