      Contenders: Long Duration Energy Storage Technologies, and Who's Behind Them

      As the global energy market, piece by piece, slowly but surely, moves towards a renewables-centered paradigm, dispatchable solar and uncurtailed wind, along with other forms of clean energy, are requiring longer and longer durations of storage to integrate them to the grid. While there’ll be a place for lithium-ion for many years yet, the technology really excels at applications of up to around four hours. For everything else, there’s a growing list of contenders, with diverse technologies and at different stages of commercialization. Here’s a handy guide to some of those technologies and their providers, electrochemical and otherwise, that promise anything from five hours to even days or weeks of storage.

      RedFlow Achieves Zinc Bromide Battery Life Milestone

      RedFlow has achieved an important milestone with over 10,000 kilowatt hours processed through a single zinc-bromide flow battery during long-term testing. Adding to the interest, this test battery continues to perform with no signs of degradation and accordingly it is not yet possible to predict total capacity nor battery life of this generation ZBM. These results have been achieved from a reference ZBM, now being manufactured by Flextronics, using accelerated bench testing and charging and discharging daily at 100% over several months.

      ViZn's Zinc Iron Redox Flow Battery: Another Storage Company In The Game

      With Southern California Edison’s announcement this month concerning the purchase of 261 megawatts (MW) of storage, the energy storage industry got a big boost. Much of the technology awarded in this first go-round is lithium ion-based (AES was awarded 100 MW of the solicitation, while Stem received 85 MW). Lithium ion batteries are the winners today, to some degree because the technology has been deployed in electric vehicles for the past few years (owing largely to power density and weight advantages), but they may or may not win the laurel wreath for stationary storage applications in the years to come.
