Next-Generation Flow Battery Energy Storage Systems from ESS
Safe, low-cost and long-duration energy storage system that can extend the availability of intermittent renewable energy sources
ESS Inc is a leading manufacturer of safe, low-cost and long-duration energy storage systems, and is working on its second-generation iron flow battery technology.
There is a significant need for low-maintenance storage technology that can extend the availability of intermittent renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
ESS Inc. uses low-cost, safe and effective materials – iron and water – to deliver a long-duration storage solution in several applications, even high-temperature climates where there is a significant need for off-grid energy
The company has partnered with Munich Re to implement an industry-first insurance-backed warranty on its flow batteries. This investment-grade warranty coverage enables long-duration storage solutions to be more readily financed by project owners and developers.
ESS Inc.’s iron flow battery technology is a safe (no hazardous chemicals) and sustainable (fully recyclable) storage solution that is ideally suited for time-shifting renewable energy, managing a facility’s demand charges, providing ancillary grid services with unlimited cycling, and smoothing the intermittency of renewable on a constrained grid. These capabilities make it suitable to support large-scale renewable energy projects, as well as transmission- and distribution-level services, without cycling limits.
As renewable energy continues to proliferate, a gap in the market is appearing for long-duration energy storage demand that lithium-ion, coal-plants and pumped hydro will not be able to satisfy. This report provides inputs on the various options emerging to fill this gap.Learn more
Lithium-ion batteries utterly dominate grid storage deployments these days. But cost obsession results in technology lock-in, boxing out other tools that could prove useful or even better if given the time and space to grow.Learn more
Save for a few rare announcements, the promising technology class has gone quiet, claims this report.Learn more
