Consortium Supports Flow Battery Installation in Hawaii for Research

The Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA), Hawaii Electric Light Co., Ulupono Initiative, and UniEnergy Technologies (UET) are working together to install a 100kW/500kWh advanced vanadium flow battery this year at the Hawaii Ocean Science and Technology Park (HOST Park) administered by NELHA. UET will supply its ReFlex energy storage system (ESS) for the project, which will begin operations at the NELHA Gateway Center early next year. The flow battery technology and was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and commercialized by UET. "Long duration flow batteries are particularly suitable for island systems to serve as a buffer between the load, variable renewable generation, and expensive fossil fuel generation, allowing for more effective asset utilization,” Dr. Imre Gyuk, director of the DOE energ...
