    1. Interview about Vanadium

      Interview about Vanadium
      recently its vanadium's status as a strategic metal, and its use in vanadium redox flow batteries, have caught people's attention. Vanadium redox flow batteries are distinguished from fuel cells because the chemical reaction is reversible, meaning that they can be recharged without replacing the electroactive material. Also, the power and energy density of the batteries are independent of each other.

    2. Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.

    3. Primus Power Full Demo of Grid-Scale 25MW Flow Battery

      Primus Power Full Demo of Grid-Scale 25MW Flow Battery

      Primus Power is building a farm of flow batteries that promise to offer 25 MW of power for up to 3 hours for the Modesto Irrigation District (Modesto, California’s utility provider). This battery farm is a full-scale demonstration system, and will store the region’s wind-generated energy as well as providing an alternative to fossil-fuel-fired generation.

    4. MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles

      MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles
      A radically new approach to the design of batteries, developed at MIT, could provide an alternative vehicle and grid batteries. "Refueling" these batteries could be similar to pumping gas into a car. The new battery relies on an innovative architecture called a semi-solid flow cell in which the electrodes are composed of particles suspended in a liquid electrolyte. [The researcher] cautions that making a practical, commercial version of such a battery will require finding better electrode and electrolyte materials.

    6. Research: Iron vs Vanadium for solar flow battery storage

      Research: Iron vs Vanadium for solar flow battery storage
      Researchers around the world are already building successful flow batteries, but usually using Vanadium, a rare metal mined in Russia and South Africa that sells for $8 to $25 per pound in its raw form, according to the release. Iron, on the other hand, is plentiful in North America and sells for just 25 cents per pound after processing.
