Yesterday afternoon the Thuringian Research Prize 2017 was awarded.

Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert, Dr. Martin Hager and Tobias Janoschka have received the prize for applied research for their research on innovative battery systems.

"Professor Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert from the Institute for Organic Chemistry and Macromolecular Chemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena speaks of an "interesting approach" pursued by Goodenough and his team. "If you look at today's electric cars, you will soon realize that we have to succeed in the battery technology," said Schubert. [...]

"Our redox-flow battery, which is based on polymers, is suitable for large applications - for example, to store electricity from wind or solar parks," explained Schubert. The accumulators were the basis for the advancing energies." Thüringer Allgemeine 18. März 2017

"Electrical energy can be stored not only in metals, but also in plastics. This application has many advantages up to intelligent packaging. Moreover, it is relatively inexpensive."
