Are Vanadium Flow Batteries The Future Of Utility-Scale Energy Storage?

Earlier this year, the California Energy Commission (CEC) published a $20 million solicitation to fund research projects for the deployment of long-duration energy storage. The objective was to develop a clear understanding of the role that long-duration energy storage (10 hours or greater) can play in helping to meet the state’s mandates to decarbonize the electricity sector by 2045. Lithium-ion batteries were excluded from the solicitation. The CEC selected four energy storage projects incorporating vanadium flow batteries (“VFBs”)…
