Shining a light on VRFBs for energy storage applications

While the majority of current vanadium demand underwritten by the steel industry as an additive to strengthen various grades of steel, a small, yet increasing amount of vanadium demand is being taken up by the global renewable energy market for its use in energy storage batteries.

Understanding vanadium redox flow batteries

CENELEST, a joint research venture between the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology and the University of New South Wales, examines the potential of vanadium redox flow batteries in the future energy system.

What Is Next For Energy Storage Technology?

Flow batteries have been around since the 1980s and use liquid electrolyte in external tanks. What makes flow batteries unique is that their power and energy are entirely decoupled. To increase energy size, the system simply requires a larger tank and more electrolyte.

Vanadium market eyes fresh demand on EU stimulus

The European Commission’s unveiling of a €750bn ($872bn) “green” infrastructure investment package this week is fuelling hopes of a demand revival for vanadium, bringing with it the potential to boost ferrovanadium prices and restore balance to converters’ profitability measures.

Vanadium: the ‘beautiful metal’ that stores energy

While the majority of current vanadium demand underwritten by the steel industry as an additive to strengthen various grades of steel, a small, yet increasing amount of vanadium demand is being taken up by the global renewable energy market for its use in energy storage batteries.

Are EVs holding back stationary energy storage systems?
