University enlists hybrid storage system to combat emissions

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

UK-based energy storage company redT has put a 1 megawatt-hour energy storage system (ESS) into operation at Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia.

The company said the vanadium flow/lithium-ion hybrid ESS is the first of its type and believed to be the largest behind the meter commercial and industrial system to be installed in Australia. It is comprised of 12 vanadium flow tank units (giving 900kWh of storage) and a 120kWh lithium-ion battery.

Chemists at the University of Glasgow have developed a flow battery system they say could reduce the charging time of electric cars “from hours to seconds”.

The chemists said their system uses a nano-molecule that can store electric power or hydrogen gas— “giving a new type of hybrid energy storage system that can be used as a flow battery or for hydrogen storage”.
