Australia’s flow battery maker RedFlow has signed a non-exclusive supply agreement with Austrian-based energy storage developer BlueSky Energy.
The agreement also gives RedFlow a presence in Europe with provided office space from BlueSky Energy in Austria.
“The RedFlow battery and the containerized offering is well suited for the German and other European markets,” said BlueSky Energy founder Hansjörg Weisskopf and added that the big solar PV presence in Germany will offer RedFlow possible business opportunities. BlueSky Energy will start to offer RedFlow’s zinc-bromide battery modules.
RedFlow’s batteries are designed to be integrated into energy storage systems. According to the company, the battery modules are suited for storage of intermittent renewable energy due to their deep charge and discharge capability.
“BlueSky’s strategy is complementary RedFlow and we look forward to entering the European market with an entrepreneurial and dynamic team and our innovative technology,” said RedFlow CEO Stuart Smith.
RedFlow has formed a RedFlow Europe subsidiary registered in Germany to support operations in the European market.
BlueSky Energy recently integrated a RedFlow battery for its factory in Austria. The Austrian company won this year’s electrical energy storage Award at Intersolar Europe together with its other partner, ViZn Energy.
