Battery storage hybrid planned for UK ‘energy superhub’

Fri, 04/05/2019 - 09:03 -- John Shepherd

UK companies are behind plans to install a hybrid storage system of lithium-ion and vanadium redox flow batteries at the heart of a new ‘energy superhub’ in the English city of Oxford.

The superhub consortium— which includes UK energy storage company redT and Pivot Power— said the project would study how the growth in local renewables, electric vehicles, battery storage, and demand side response can be supported and help in reducing charges to consumers.

Pivot Power will create a connection to the transmission network for the system that will combine the lithium-ion battery with “2 MW / 5 MWh of the heavy cycling, non-degrading characteristics of vanadium redox flow machines”.

Flow battery partnership to overcome ‘failure’ of UK storage regs

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

A Canadian-UK partnership intends to bolster the UK energy storage market with proposals for 15 projects, totalling 20MW/80-120MWh.

CEO of UK-based Immersa, Robert Miles (pictured), said that the partnership with Toronto-based vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) producer Cellcube would address a gap in the UK energy storage market, which he attributes to “a lack of regulatory focus”.

“The UK energy storage market had a stuttered start due to continuous policy change, contract ambiguity, and a failure to recognise the benefits of battery storage projects under legislation demands”, Miles said.

VRB Energy ramps up redox flow BESS in China Primary tabs

Mon, 11/12/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

Global vanadium redox flow battery manufacturer VRB Energy has started the commissioning of an energy storage system in China’s Hubei Province.

VRB said the 3-megawatt/12-megawatt-hour vanadium redox battery in Zaoyang is part of 10MW/40MWh contract the company was awarded in November 2017.

The Zaoyang battery will be used to integrate a large-scale solar PV system into the grid. The first— 250kW/1MWh— battery module of the system has been successfully commissioned.
