GET TO KNOW VANADIUM
What Is a Vanadium Flow Battery?
Vanadium batteries are a form of rechargeable flow battery that store energy by taking advantage of vanadium’s ability to exist in solution in four different oxidation states. This means vanadium batteries (also known as vanadium flow batteries, vanadium redox batteries, and vanadium redox flow batteries) need only one electroactive element instead of two, as metal cross-contamination is eliminated.
Vanadium flow batteries have long held promise as a sustainable energy source, but significant disadvantages kept them from being widely used. Through extensive research and development, StorEn has helped deliver on this promise by improving upon previous vanadium flow battery technology to yield better performance at a lower cost. StorEn vanadium flow batteries are positioned to satisfy market demand for a more efficient, cost-effective means of energy storage.
StorEn Brings Battery Storage
Into the 21st Century
Through our R&D work at the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program (CEBIP) within Stony Brook University, we have optimized the electrical efficiency of the stack, the energy density of the electrolyte, and the module. The result is a battery that is ready to meet the energy needs of the 21st century, where sustainability is no longer an option, but a necessity.
One of the most significant hurdles in the implementation of widespread solar and wind energy usage is the fact that these energy sources are unpredictable. This lack of predictability means energy must be collected when available and stored for later use, but traditional battery technology has limited storage capacity. Vanadium flow batteries have nearly unlimited capacity, giving them the potential to lay the foundation for a global transition to renewable energy.
Advantages of Vanadium Flow Batteries
Vanadium redox flow batteries have several key advantages over lithium batteries:
No Lost Capacity
Vanadium flow batteries discharge fully at 100% without ever decaying and losing capacity.
Because they have the ability to operate at low temperatures, vanadium flow batteries are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Vanadium batteries are more cost-effective than lithium batteries, as they never lose capacity, they have longer lifetimes, and they retain their value at end-of-life.
Vanadium redox batteries are a safer energy storage option, with a non-flammable and non-explosive electrolyte.
With regular maintenance, vanadium flow batteries can last over 25 years. StorEn’s Battery Management System signals when maintenance is needed. When replacement is required, the vanadium electrolyte can be reused, minimizing the need for fresh vanadium mining.
