Vanadium redox flow batteries (VRB) can be used for utility purposes including:
- Ancillary services for the grid
- Replacement or addition of peaking capacity
- Firming and capture of renewable generation from wind and solar
Ancillary services for the grid
Frequency regulation, voltage support, energy reserves and wholesale marketing of energy.
VRB make time shifting of energy possible, ranging from seconds to 8 hours and more. Our technology is the key to hedge and secure against grid instability.
VRB provide regulation for all control reserves. Capacity can be varied to suit your requirements.
Replacement or addition of peaking capacity
Operating as both a power source and sink. Easy expansion of capacity with modular solution.
Market trading capacity.
Firming and capture of renewable generation from wind and solar
Long duration time shifting to mitigate the surplus daytime energy generation and transfer it to the evening or other peak demand hours. Combining flow battery energy storage with renewable generation allows for a smooth grid integration and avoid curtailment and inconsistent energy delivery.
