Vanadium Flow Battery as Stationary Storage of Electricity

POSTER: We have developed vanadium flow battery, solution for stationary applications. Power of the battery is independent on the capacity and can be easily tailored to the needs. Battery shows excellent durability and cycleability and appear as strong and robust energy storage. Non-explosive, safe, environmentally friendly technology with low maintenance requirements excels as strong and robust heart of not only island grids. We have developed stack with 2 kW power and efficiency overlapping 80 %, which can be easilly assembled to larger systems. In this work we present comparison of our developed technology with its competitors and outline of possible applications of energy storage in public sector. Also experiences and competences of our research group in field of morphological analysis using rentgen microtomography and in development of innovative energy storage solutions are presented.
