The project will simulate different use cases for VRFB technology in energy storage
Alpharetta, Ga., January 10, 2023 –Stryten Energy LLC, a U.S.-based energy storage solutions provider, is partnering with Snapping Shoals EMC to demonstrate its advanced vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) technology for energy storage and deployment uses and evaluate where the technology will provide the maximum benefits.
Power consumption is projected to triple by 2050, due in part to electrification. In order to meet the increasing demand for energy, production from renewable energy sources will need to scale up nine to 13 times in the next 30 years. A variety of battery technologies will be necessary for the long-duration energy storage capacity as a result of increased production from renewables. Demand for energy storage is also expected to accelerate as a result of the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act in August 2022. This bill includes vital Investment Tax Credits for domestically sourced and manufactured standalone clean energy storage intended to lower costs, increase energy efficiency and strengthen energy security for America.
“Stryten Energy’s collaboration with Snapping Shoals will provide deeper understanding of how our VRFB technology operates in real-world conditions. By testing the battery energy storage system against a variety of usage needs, we can identify where it can make the most impact for energy providers,” said Scott Childers, Vice President of Stryten Energy’s Essential Power Division.
VRFB technology is ideally suited to provide medium and long-duration energy storage 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.
Stryten Energy’s VRFB combines multiple innovations to achieve safe and reliable energy storage performance required for medium to long-duration needs:
- Domestically sourced vanadium electrolyte that is easily recycled
- Increased power density and reduced battery downtime
- Potential of limitless cycle life with proper maintenance
- High-temperature ratings and thermally safe
- Scalable to meet varying energy storage capacity needs
