Another Small Step for Reflow Battery: American Vanadium to market Gildemeister's CellCube in North America

Another Small Step for Reflow Battery: American Vanadium to market Gildemeister's CellCube in North America

Having already entered into a strategic alliance in the last year, the Canadian company American Vanadium and Germany's Gildemeister announced this week that the former will market the latter's CellCube vanadium redox flow battery in North America. Flow batteries, though not a new technology as such, have the especially attractive feature of being scalable , whether to store energy from a single photovoltaic panel or to provide backup for a grid-scale wind farm. Gildemeister's CellCube series , with sizes ranging from 10-30 KW of power capacity and 40-130 kWh of energy storage capacity, is intermediate scale. Some 50 CellCube units have been installed this year , according to Reuters, and so the company and its technology appear to be coming on strong.
