U.S. energy storage system developer SunEdison is buying 1,000 vanadium flow batteries from Imergy Power Systems as it moves into the Indian market.
US energy storage firm Imergy Power Systems (Imergy) has been selected by Foresight Renewable Solutions to provide three of its flow batteries to a smart microgrid project in California, US.
The batteries will be deployed at the US Navy’s mobile utilities support equipment facility in Port Hueneme. The project, which focuses on developing applications and use-case scenarios to optimise power consumption at military bases, industrial parks and other institutions is, sponsored by the California Energy Commission (CEC).
US-based flow battery developer Imergy Power Systems (Imergy), known as Deeya Energy, has introduced a vanadium flow battery that costs $300/kWh.
According to Imergy, the 50kW battery comes with a minimum 20-year cycle life and can store up to 200kWh of electricity. The storage duration can be extended by increasing electrolyte concentration and volume. The ESP30 battery can be used at up to 131°F (55°C).
Energy storage technology firm REDT (Renewable Energy Dynamics Technology Ltd.) has installed a 5 kW vanadium redox flow battery system with 12 hours (60kWh) storage capacity at the University of Evora, Portugal.
