This innovation promises to overcome the biggest problem of all storage technologies:  the power-conversion hardware (which defines the peak battery Power)  and the energy capacity (which allow for the listed Capacity) are packaged together in one unit and cannot be decoupled. The novel technology, beside being cheaper than metal-catalist electrolytes, allows independent sizing of power and capacity and therefore the storage optimization for different application.
