The world of energy has shifted towards emission-free technologies which pose entirely new challenges for energy accumulators. Energy storage no longer involves a simple coal cellar, but rather requires intelligent storage devices that can interact with the grid.
Examples of this technology include batteries used in combination with photovoltaic systems, buffers for wind farms, as well as accumulators that support the line frequency on public grids.
Intelligent energy storage results in the ability to smooth out peak loads or provide better supply quality as well as improved autonomy for critical applications along with a variety of additional benefits. The combination of modern power electronics developed by our partners, supported and delivered to you by energySEA, opens up your abilities to cut costs while maintaining a high supply quality.
REDOX FLOW BATTERY SYSTEM
by Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (SEI)
Redox flow batteries are rechargeable batteries that are charged and discharged by means of the oxidation-reduction reaction of ions of vanadium or the like.
They have excellent characteristics: a long service life with almost no degradation of electrodes and electrolytes, high safety due to being free of combustible materials, and availability of operation under normal temperatures.
These make the batteries ideal for use in power grid systems. Redox flow batteries are thus expected to serve as a technology to stabilize the power grids that will be needed to expand the introduction of renewable energy including solar and wind power.
