Imergy’s unique leasing option opens volume market for vanadium redox energy storage
Energy storage innovation attracting interest from operators, towercos and ESCOs
TowerXchange caught up with Tom Tipple, one of the evangelists of vanadium redox energy storage technology, as he settled into a new role as Regional VP for Europe, Africa and the Middle East at Imergy Power Systems. Vanadium redox batteries are known to be a good fit for emerging market telecoms, in that they have a ten+ year lifespan and can partially charge or discharge an unlimited number of times according to the availability of grid or renewable power sources without any degradation in performance. However, the capital cost of vanadium redox technology has been prohibitively expensive for many applications… until now!
