GILDEMEISTER: Could vanadium redox energy storage solutions be a game changer?
Flow batteries ideally suited to meet the needs of larger sites off-grid and on unreliable grid
When used as a diesel hybrid application Vanadium Redox Energy Storage Systems can provide tremendous energy savings, particularly at larger off-grid and poor, unreliable grid sites. The diesel hybrid concept of storing spare load from a diesel generator is nothing new, however the charging and discharging properties of different battery technologies allow some battery technologies to deliver much greater efficiencies and therefore cost savings than others. In this interview, Tom Tipple of GILDEMEISTER Energy Solutions introduces the CellCube Vanadium Redox Energy Storage System and shares his perspective on how to maximise the efficiency of the diesel hybrid model.
