Stryten Energy Awarded MAKE IT Prize Funding for SAVES Project

This project will help rapidly scale the US-based production and commercialization of cost-effective vanadium redox flow battery electrolyte.

Alpharetta, Ga., May 1, 2024 – Stryten Energy LLC, a U.S.-based energy storage solutions provider, has received an award from the U.S. Department of Energy through the MAKE IT Prize to build a domestic vanadium electrolyte manufacturing plant to support long duration energy storage.  

The Securing America’s Vanadium Electrolyte Supply (SAVES) project will deploy Stryten’s proprietary reactor design to provide domestically produced, low-cost electrolyte. Vanadium electrolyte typically constitutes 40 to 60 percent of the overall system cost, representing a key cost reduction to help rapidly scale the U.S.-based production and commercialization of vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFB).

The Manufacture of Advanced Key Energy Infrastructure Technologies (MAKE IT) Prize was developed by the Office of Technology Transitions (OTT), the Offices of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED), and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) with the goal of catalyzing the domestic manufacturing of critical clean energy technology components.

“Stryten Energy is building the foundation to meet the critical need for vanadium electrolyte, which is central to long-duration energy storage,” said Scott Childers, Vice President of Essential Power at Stryten Energy. “Establishing a domestic supply chain for this key component of VRFB systems will unlock our ability to control the path to energy independence using a clean, renewable-based grid in the U.S.”

VRFB technology is ideally suited to provide long-duration energy storage greater than 4 hours to help ensure grid stability and facilitate increased utilization of renewables for businesses and consumers across the U.S. These systems are independently scalable in power and capacity. This scalability has the potential for substantial cost reduction when discharge time goes up, making VRFB the preferred option for large-scale energy storage.
