- Renewable energy is the future of energy
- Vanadium batteries are uniquely suited to the task of rolling out renewable energy on a larger scale
- Perhaps one of the most compelling advantages of vanadium flow batteries is their cost
The debate is over, according to a recent StorEn Technologies blog: renewable energy is the future of energy (https://ibn.fm/IlQCs). The only discussion left, according to the company, is identifying the best path to get there.
“At StorEn Technologies, we believe that vanadium flow batteries are the key to making sustainable energy sources like solar power more widely accessible,” states the blog, which outlines why the benefits of vanadium flow batteries make them “uniquely suited to the task of rolling out renewable energy on a larger scale and helping more people and businesses achieve independence from the electrical grid.”
According to StorEn, vanadium flow batteries offer superior discharge capacity and a long lifespan. The company says the batteries have an expected lifespan of 25 years or more — with no degradation of performance even as a battery nears the end of its life. The batteries also provide sustainable energy storage.
The blog notes that unlike lithium batteries, vanadium flow batteries will always discharge fully at 100%. “There is no decaying or losing of capacity over time. In other words, 100% of the initial battery capacity is available through a vanadium flow battery’s entire lifetime, making it easier to match daily demands with generation.”
In addition, vanadium batteries are also safer, low maintenance and more versatile. “Lithium batteries present several significant disadvantages when it comes to safety; vanadium flow batteries have none of these,” the blog explains. “Because their electrolyte is water based, vanadium flow batteries are nonflammable and also nonexplosive, giving vanadium flow batteries the highest level of safety when compared to other battery technologies.”
StorEn vanadium flow batteries offer hassle-free maintenance as well. The StorEn Battery Management System sends a notification when service is required, eliminating the need for scheduled maintenance. And the batteries can be used both inside and outside in a wide range of temperatures. “While vanadium flow batteries are most often used for grid storage at present, future innovations and cost reductions once economies of scale kick in will make this technology more commonplace,” the blog states.
On top of these significant benefits, perhaps one of the most compelling advantages of vanadium flow batteries is their cost. “Thanks to their longer lifespan and because vanadium flow batteries do not lose capacity over time and continue to discharge fully until replacement, they are a cost-effective choice when compared to lithium with the lowest cost/cycle possible today,” the blog notes. “Lithium batteries also have higher disposal costs, while vanadium electrolyte retains its value at end-of-life.
StorEn has developed evolutionary vanadium flow batteries. Incubated at the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program (“CEBIP”) within Stony Brook University in New York, the company is building upon the strengths of vanadium flow batteries to revolutionize the world of residential and industrial energy storage.
