Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries: The Next Big Wave After Lithium Batteries
Global wind energy production has increased eightfold in the last 10 years. Driven largely by climate change initiatives.
The emergence of utility-scale battery storage for energy is happening now, accelerating, and will get bigger in the next two to five years,
Vanadium redox flow batteries (VRB), is ideal for “grid constrained” solar and wind farms that currently struggle to sell their electricity at times of peak production but find other forms of storage are not economical.
Compared to lithium-ion batteries, VRB are non-flammable, environmentally friendly, have estimated lifespans in excess of 10,000 cycles and maintain 90% of their capacity over 20 years thereby lowering the total cost of ownership.
With inevitable mass utility-scale VRB adoption, thus the long-term vanadium price trend looks promising, making for increased interest in miners that produce vanadium metal.
