Monroe receives NSF early career award12/7/2012
Charles Monroe has won a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Monroe will use the award to continue his work on non-aqueous, single-metal flow batteries. Flow batteries are a rechargeable, easily scalable electrochemical energy storage technology that promises to be useful for delivering power at the utility scale. Monroe's CAREER research will focus on elucidating the fundamental reaction mechanisms and material interactions that determine how flow batteries behave, and will use this knowledge as a foundation for computational models that accurately simulate flow-battery operation.
