    5. Vanadium-Flow Batteries Gain Commercial Traction

      Vanadium-Flow Batteries Gain Commercial Traction

      Early this year, California became the first state in the U.S. to start making use of advanced, distributed energy storage systems. The list of  factors motivating the passage of California’s energy storage mandate –AB2514 – is substantial. It encompasses integrating the fast-growing amount of renewable energy generation capacity coming online, enhancing grid reliability and resiliency, neutralizing the high and volatile costs of fossil fuels, and addressing the growing costs of climate change adaptation and degradation of ecosystems and natural resources.

    6. Nevada's Vanadium May Hold Key to Storing Energy

      Nevada's Vanadium May Hold Key to Storing Energy

      The future of America’s energy storage industry may well be found in “them thar hills” of central Nevada, and Canada-based American Vanadium Corp. is gearing up to harvest what it sees as the 21st century mother lode. The company is in the permitting phase of starting a mining operation for a deposit of vanadium in Eureka County. Initially, that means up to 125 new jobs but it could mean much more to the state’s economy in the long run. Vanadium is the 23rd element on the periodic table, and it is classified as a soft silver-gray ductile transition metal. Most vanadium — about 90 percent globally — is used as an additive to strengthen steel. Recently, many people, including President Barack Obama, have gotten excited about vanadium’s status as a strategic metal with “green energy” applications, American Vanadium Corp. CEO Bill Radvak said.

      Vanadium 'CellCube' Batteries Could Power South Africa Independent of Eskom

      We’ve seen questionable substances used for energy storage in the past year, from hemp to used cigarette butts, but the latest breakthrough seems more traditional than others. Vanadium, a metallic element falling between titanium and chromium on the periodic table, can be used for shed-sized batteries that according to the creators, lasts forever. Vanadium is a nifty little element and is used in creating strengthened steel alloy (it was part of the Ford Model T, for example). Batteries containing the element are not rare either — the initial patent for a vanadium-based battery came about in the late Eighties, but the new take on the battery may bridge the gap between electricity surplus and demand.

    12. Imergy Power Systems Achieves Technological Breakthrough in Energy Storage: Flow Batteries Made From Recycled Vanadium

      Imergy Power Systems Achieves Technological Breakthrough in Energy Storage: Flow Batteries Made From Recycled Vanadium

      Imergy Power Systems, a pioneer in advanced storage systems, has achieved a fundamental milestone in energy storage by developing an exclusive process for producing high-performance flow batteries with recycled vanadium from mining slag, oil field sludge, fly ash, and other forms of environmental waste. The achievement will have a number of significant impacts on the growing energy storage industry. Other manufacturers of vanadium flow batteries build their devices with virgin vanadium extracted from mining. It must then be processed to a 99% plus level of purity. Through an extensive R&D program, Imergy has developed a way to produce flow batteries with vanadium at a 98% purity level that can be harvested from environmental waste sites.

    15. Floodgates Open For Vanadium Flow Batteries

      Floodgates Open For Vanadium Flow Batteries

      Vanadium flow batteries offer the kind of low cost, high capacity energy storage solutions that will help transform the wind and the sun into power sources that rival fossil fuel plants for stability and reliability, but as always there are a couple of catches: where to get the silvery transition metal vanadium, and how to keep the price down? CleanTechnica has been following one company, American Vanadium, that is solving the US vanadium problem by developing the nation’s only vanadium mine. Located in Nevada, the mine will deploy some low cost operating strategies to keep the price of vanadium down. Putting its money where its mouth is, American Vanadium will also power the mining operations partly by a solar array/vanadium flow battery combo.

      Better batteries could revolutionize solar, wind power (good overview)

      Batteries are key. They can directly power electric cars and buses and, indirectly, homes and big buildings by storing solar and wind power for times when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow. They balance out renewables that produce energy intermittently so consumers can power up laptops or run refrigerators 24/7.
