Due to flexible scalability of capacity and power the vanadium redox flow technology is predestined for smart grids, German manufacturer Schmid said.
The EverFlow container has 30 kilowatts of power and a capacity of 100 kilowatt hours.

The Everflow storage container from Freudenstadt-based Schmid is integrated into an AC test network for smart grid applications at the Technical University of Dortmund. In the Smart Grid Technology Lab, researchers of the TU Dortmund are developing and testing components for smart grids. To this end, they have created an infrastructure which is to be expected in a future low-voltage grid.

In addition to electric vehicles, PV systems and a controllable local power transformer, these are also efficient energy storages. Soon a vanadium redox flow battery from Schmid will be integrated into the test network. The Everflow storage container is to be used in the smart grid technology lab of the TU, both in grid-parallel and in stand-alone mode.

The German manufacturer Schmid is a supplier of a vanadium redox flow system and offers turnkey systems in several versions. The EverFlow container has 30 kilowatts of power and a capacity of 100 kilowatt hours. (nhp)
