United Technologies Research Center Wins R&D 100 Award For Breakthrough Energy Storage System

"Each year since 1963, the R&D 100 Awards have showcased revolutionary technologies and products with the potential for global impact," said Dr. David Parekh, Vice President, Research, and Director, UTRC. "It is gratifying to see a UTRC breakthrough concept publicly lauded through a respected industry forum that has served research scientists, engineers and laboratory technical staff around the world for more than 50 years."

"In designing the PureStorage system, we were able to pull from five decades of world-class knowledge in fuel cells and then innovatively apply our expertise to the three major components of that technology – the flow field, electrodes and membrane – to dramatically improve performance and reduce cost in a flow battery concept," said Craig Walker, Director of UTC's Climate, Controls & Security program office at UTRC. "Winning the R&D 100 Award validates the impact of such advanced thinking."

UTC is actively working to license UTRC's PureStorage flow battery technology to strategic manufacturing partners across the globe.

R&D Magazine features its R&D 100 Awards and recipients, including UTRC's PureStorage flow battery system, in its October 2013 issue. The publication will present UTRC with its R&D 100 Award at its annual awards ceremony in Orlando, Fla. on Nov. 7. For a complete list of 2013 R&D 100 Awards winners, visit:
