Tennessee Utility Participates In Flow Battery Pilot Project

Tennessee Utility Participates In Flow Battery Pilot Project

Chattanooga, Tenn.-based electricity and telecom provider EPB recently energized a 100-kW/400-kWh vanadium redox flow battery as part of a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and a group of national labs. The project, which is part of DOE’s Grid Modernization Lab Consortium program, is installed at the site of EPB’s Solar Share community solar array in Chattanooga. The battery system was provided by UniEnergy Technologies (UET). UET said that the pilot project will help researchers explore how large-scale energy storage can be integrated with smart grid automation to provide consistent output from variable power generation sources, such as solar. “Our partnership with EPB continues to create exciting opportunities to enhance the security and resilience of the electric grid,” Dr. Thomas Zacharia, Director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, said in a Sept. 22...
