The StorEn Technologies* vanadium flow battery prototype has arrived at Stony Brook University in New York. This battery, featuring StorEn’s proprietary technology will undergo extensive independent validation at the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University. This session follows their internal testing performed at the Environment Park.

StorEn has been hosting an equity crowdfunding campaign to raise funds, and wishes to express sincere gratitude to everyone who has invested in our project. They raised just over half a million dollars in investment funds, which will enable StorEn to complete the next step in the company’s roadmap towards manufacturing.

To continue to stay tuned to StorEn’s progress, you can stay tuned to StorEn’s StartEngine campaign page and on social media, to keep our community informed of developments. Stay in touch with us and please consider sharing our campaign with others. Regulations ensure that equity crowdfunding can be open for just 12 months, thus the StorEn campaign will be ending soon.

What is Vanadium Flow Technology?

If you have missed our other articles about StorEn’s vanadium technology, learn more below. Although lithium-ion batteries have benchmarked storage solutions, the capacity requirement outlined in the DAYS program opens the door to new technologies.

  • Flow batteries, which produce an electrical current through an exchange of negatively and positively charged liquid, using non-explosive, non-flammable electrolytes, have emerged as a low-carbon footprint solution. The structure of flow batteries provides reliability — liquids can be stored almost indefinitely and activated quickly. And flow batteries are scalable — they can be produced in several sizes.
  • Vanadium flow batteries are viewed by some as the frontrunner for energy storage solutions because of their reliability and battery life. But the cost is still one of the challenges facing lithium-ion alternatives like vanadium flow batteries.

StorEn Technologies is in the process of validating its vanadium flow battery prototype with promising results. The company’s batteries provide energy storage for residential, industrial, and telecom/data center applications.
