Technology

The Vanadium Redox Flow Battery (VRFB) stands for a progressive and innovative flow battery technology.

Different oxidation states of dissolved vanadium ions in the electrolyte store or deliver electric energy.

The electrolyte is continuously fed from a tank system into the reaction cell (also called Stack). Depending on the current demand, energy is stored in the electrolyte (battery charging) or fed into the grid/network (battery discharging).

Areas of Application

icon_balancing

Balancing

Real-time battery monitoring and short reaction times allows complex supply/demand balancing as well as efficient ancillary services

icon_e-mobility

E-Mobility

Storing surplus energy from renewables, like PV-Carports or wind turbines, for charging electrical vehicles

icon_smart-grid

Smart-Grid

Intelligent balancing of energy production and consumption as well as enabling the integration of distributed energy generation

icon_peak

Peak Shaving

Electricity prices for industry & commerce are often determined by power peaks. By setting a specific threshold these peaks can be cut, resulting in annual electricity bill savings

icon_off-grid

Off-Grid

Ensure energy supply from renewables and optimizing the use of diesel generators where the grid is missing

icon_integration

Renewable Integration

Store surplus renewable energy and use it later or secure your operations in case of power outages
