Japan's Sumitomo Electric winning the world's largest vanadium redox flow battery energy storage project
Date of Issue 2013-07-30
Japan's Hokkaido Electric Power Company in order to make greater use of renewable energy, decided to adopt longer life, high safety of the new high-capacity battery. This reporter has learned that the project is 60 MWh vanadium redox flow battery energy storage system for the world's largest all-vanadium redox flow battery energy storage projects, the battery technology developed and manufactured by Sumitomo Electric. Plan 2015 officially networking use.
With the increasingly high proportion of photovoltaic power generation will cause the grid voltage instability, which through the storage battery charge and discharge to stabilize the voltage. Power company to introduce such a large-capacity storage battery is the first case in Japan. Hope that through such initiatives can promote the popularization of the use of renewable energy.
