Vanadium Redox flow batteries might just be the next storage technology to watch.
Prudent Energy is already starting its Vanadium Redox Battery Energy Storage System (VRB-ESS) project in a small Northwest European town, most likely in Germany.
The aim of the VRB-ESS is to not only reduce reliance on the grid, but to complement it, and so far, Prudent Energy has reported some positive findings.
According to the company, the VRB-ESS is also able to scale its storage and power levels independently using an electronic control system.
Vanadium is a promising resource, given that it is widely available in the ground, and can be easily recovered from ash produced during the steel manufacturing process.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
