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.
