Schmid and Saudi companies are also planning a gigawatt-scale manufacturing facility for Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries.
Hive Energy, a UK-based utility-scale solar developer, has entered into a consortium with vanadium redox flow battery manufacturer CellCube and Immersa to jointly build solar-plus-storage projects in the UK.
NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar sat down to talk to Energy-Storage.News about developing – and selling – energy storage systems in lithium and flow battery ‘flavours’ alongside his company’s market-leading PV tracker systems.
Officials from 56 Muslim-majority nations have come together to pledge new climate-related technology goals that included promoting microgrids, energy storage and renewable energy targets.
Clearly, renewable energy is now a viable alternative to traditional generation from a cost perspective. However solar and wind's penetration of the grid is constrained by ageing infrastructure, high grid connection costs and their intermittent, weather-dependent nature. Scott McGregor looks at how long-duration energy storage on an industrial scale can help.
Utility San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) and Sumitomo Electric (SEI) have launched a 2MW/8MWh pilot vanadium redox flow battery storage project in California to study how the technology can reliably integrate renewable energy and improve flexibility in grid management.
Property and infrastructure group Lendlease has signed a joint venture agreement (JVA) to deliver solar, battery storage and microgrid projects across Australia with Carnegie Clean Energy.
Vanadium redox flow technology provider redT energy reported a loss of €2.7 million in H1 2016 compared to a profit of €0.1 million in H1 2015, in line with the company’s expectations.
Vanadium redox flow technology provider redT energy has passed its G59 pre-testing for its 15kW / 240kWh vanadium flow energy storage systems, which are located at the Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC) in Cumbernauld, Scotland.
Energy storage provider Schmid Energy Systems has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with vanadium supplier VanadiumCorp Resource to jointly work on mineral extraction and developing vanadium electrolyte.
Japanese financial services company Orix Corporation has invested in UniEnergy Technologies (UET), a US company delivering large-scale energy storage based around its own vanadium flow batteries.
