A French company has designed, assembled and tested a 10 kW organic redox flow battery prototype for renewable, smart and micro-grid applications.
Kemwatt’s non-corrosive organic RFB required two years of development from the Rennes based start-up.
Flow battery firm redT energy storage has appointed Neil O'Brien as non-executive director of the company.
The 53-year-old joins redT as the company looks to drive adoption of it vanadium redox flow battery to the grid-scale markets, which includes recent deployments in Africa and Scotland.
A grid-scale flow battery has passed the testing phase and is now set to harness renewable energy on a remote Scottish island.
The 1.68MWH energy storage system (ESS) by UK firm redT will serve as a microgrid when it’s integrated with the Scottish Isle of Gigha’s three wind turbines with a combined capacity of 775kW.
Flow battery maker Imergy has gone into insolvency after backers withdrew investment from the US based company.
The Silicon valley-headquartered vanadium redox flow battery maker has also terminated the contracts of its staff.
US flow battery maker Vionx Energy has entered into a nonbinding memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Canadian vanadium producer Largo Resources.
The MOU outlines the principal terms upon which Vionx will base a final deal in which it will use Largo’s vanadium electrolyte in its Vanadium Redox Battery (VRB) systems.
Materials company Australian Vanadium’s (AVL) vertical integration model has moved a step closer after its first flow battery left the factory and work on its pilot plant began.
Installation and commissioning of Western Australia’s first vanadium flow battery is due in September after the battery left GILDEMEISTER’s Austrian factory last week.
