#Vanadium Batteries Need #ElonMusk Moment to Kick-Start Market
#Vanadium-flow batteries are robust, long-lasting, can operate in all temperatures and don’t degrade internally, said Algar, who wants to have at least 20 percent of output from his company’s Gabanintha project in Western #Australia going into the battery market.
The dominant form of energy storage is #Lithium-ion technology, but there are advantages to vanadium-flow batteries. They last longer and can be charged and discharged repeatedly without any significant drop in performance. They are also easy to recycle and good for projects where space isn’t an issue.
