Sumitomo Electric Starts Up Megawatt-Class, Concentrating Solar / Flow Battery Facility in Japan.

Sumitomo Electric Starts Up Megawatt-Class, Concentrating Solar / Flow Battery Facility in Japan. Sumitomo Electric Industries has completed the first phase of a megawatt-class electric power generation/storage system on the premises of its Yokohama Works and has started operation. The system consists of the world's largest redox flow battery and Japan's largest concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) units. The system when when complete will consist of 28 units of CPV for a maximum total power generation of 200 kW. (Currently the facility has 15 CPV units installed for about 100kW of power.) Each CPV panel has twice the power generation efficiency of a silicon solar panel currently on the market. A redox flow battery (capacity: 1 MW x 5 hours) is connected to the CPV array to be a storage facility for the electric power generated by the CPV units. A redox flow battery is a storag...
