Arotech Corp., a provider of defense and security products for the military, law enforcement and homeland security markets, says that its Battery and Power Systems Division has advanced its development of an iron flow battery to provide storage for grid power, following promising results in lab tests.

"While flow batteries themselves are not new technologies, with over 50 flow batteries installed globally as of the end of last year, our design uses a patent-pending iron chemistry providing the highest [return on investment], with the lowest total lifecycle, capital and maintenance costs," says Robert S. Ehrlich, Arotech's chairman and CEO.

"While this will be a multi-year development effort until commercialization, we believe that given the sheer size of the market, which is expected to exceed $400 billion by 2020, this is a project highly worthy of our [research and development] investment," he adds.

Arotech notes that it has filed a patent application covering this technology.
