energy storage solution.
The VRB® Energy VRB-ESS® electrolyte never wears out, and can be charged and discharged an almost infinite number of cycles.
Our utility-scale systems last for 25+ years and offer the lowest lifecycle cost of energy (LCOE) of any type of battery storage.
VRB Energy’s deep-discharge, long-life utility-scale energy storage solutions are ideal for integrating renewable energy, increasing power grid system efficiency, providing operational flexibility and delivering grid resiliency.
To address the increasing threat of climate change, the world needs this combination of renewables and storage. This combination is already the most cost-effective energy solution in many parts of the US and the World.
On a global scale, VRB Energy has the most advanced flow battery technology and proven utility-scale deployment capabilities.
Our VRB-ESS® provides 4+ hours of energy storage for daily cycling to firm up wind energy, time-shift solar energy, and manage stability for microgrids.
ENERGY STORAGE SOLUTIONS
VRB-ESS® are based on a 500kW containerized Power Module
Suitable for deployment at utility substations, as well as at large commercial and industrial sites – in support of solar, wind or microgrids.
Our innovation is delivering a path to better, faster and more economical energy storage.
Our proprietary ion-exchange membrane, long-life electrolyte formulation and innovative cell stack flow field design yield numerous cost and efficiency advantages.
VRB Energy currently has more than 40 major patents worldwide. These range from core stack design, to electrolyte composition, to system-level design, as well as application-level patents covering integration of energy storage into microgrid and grid balancing applications.
Our proprietary technology ensures a battery that is safe for operation in a wide range of temperatures – and gives us cost and performance advantages over other flow battery providers.
VRB Energy currently has over 750MWh of projects under development, with increasing interest being shown for storage projects of 8-hours duration.
VRB Energy has the most proven vanadium battery technology with an extensive track record of reliable performance.
Storage duration can be increased from 4 to 6 or 8 hours at a low, incremental cost providing project owners with ultimate flexibility.
Robert Friedland, Chairman, VRB Energy
The result is that customers can expand their storage requirements from 4 hours 8 hours or more, simply by adding additional tanks and electrolyte in order to meet their needs.
"We selected a vanadium flow battery because they have superior safety, reliability and lifecycle economics compared to lithium-ion and other battery types. We selected VRB Energy because it is the leader in China with its VRB technology, and has a track record of performance with State Grid Corporation of China."
Mr. XIE Guanggua, Chairman, Hubei Pingfan
