Lithium-antimony-lead liquid metal battery for grid-level energy storage : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
Apparently swapping in a lead-antimony alloy for one electrode works pretty well, retaining the high voltage capability of pure antimony while lowering the melt temp closer to lead. Matching with a lithium electrode on the other side of the electrolyte makes the overall system operating temp lower, from the original concept's 700C to more like 450-500C.

Interesting energy storage idea, similar to CAES but reverses some of the problems. Efficiency improves somewhat if it can use an on-site waste heat source rather than ambient air (implying a colocated coal or gas turbine plant as baseload providing nighttime recharge of the cryogenic tank)(this can use any kind of low grade heat, even stuff that ORC stuff would sniff at). Total storage volume is less than CAES since you are dealing in liquids and not gases, though you commit to a large number of cryogenic tanks. You could probably couple this with an ASU, so you have a side business of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen production, focusing on LN2 as your working fluid. Assuming a gas turbine is your nominal heat source, you could potentially do an oxyfuel/IGCC style setup where some turbines are run in cold nitrogen gas mode while others are in oxygen/methane burning mode, with steam recovery secondary generation coupled to tertiary warming of liquid nitrogen.

Technology Review: TR10: Liquid Battery
Interesting idea, but what about the fundamental principal of batteries, being that you get better energy density by increasing the surface area of the electrodes? Wouldn't the liquid electrode layer represent the least amount of surface area possible?
