Vanadium flow batteries are considered a leading light of the push towards technologies that can meet the need for long-duration energy storage. Not least of all by the companies that mine the metal from the ground. Andy Colthorpe learns how two primary vanadium producers increasingly view flow batteries as an exciting opportunity in the energy transition space.
Amazon has invested in India-headquartered battery management software and electronics specialist ION Energy through its US$2 billion fund to support companies with promising sustainability technologies.
TWAICE, a German battery analytics software company founded in 2018 which already counts Audi and Daimler as well as European energy utility companies amongst its customers, has raised US$26 million in a Series B funding round.
Energy-Storage.news was delighted to host a sponsored webinar with Honeywell Process Solutions looking at how technology, combined with world-class performance guarantees, can help de-risk and monetise energy storage assets across the Americas.
Software is rapidly becoming recognised as key to the value proposition and bankability of energy storage, which in turn lies at the heart of the energy transition. Andy Colthorpe speaks to three providers of software aimed at the energy storage industry.
TWAICE, a software company headquartered in Munich, has launched a platform aimed at helping energy storage system operators manage the profitable use of their assets against the impact that has on the health of their batteries.
Large-scale Vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) technology looks set to be deployed at a 100MW solar energy power plant in China, two years after a smaller-scale demonstration project was commissioned in the region.
A large-scale vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) demonstration project in California which has been providing grid services on a commercial basis will now also trial the use of the technology for microgrid applications.
