Default Vanadium flow batteries by Imergy selected for US Navy 'Smart Microgrid' trial

Energy storage specialist Imergy Power Systems has announced that its vanadium flow batteries will be used at a "smart micro-grid" demonstration project hosted by the US Navy.

Imergy, which has offices in California and India, announced on Monday that the project's developer, Foresight Renewable Solutions, will be using the batteries at a project based at the US Navy's Mobile Utilities Support Equipment (MUSE) Facility in Port Hueneme, California.

The Smart Microgrid project is sponsored by the California Energy Commission (CEC) and will examine use cases for storage from four main angles. It will look at managing demand charges, load shifting, smoothing the variable output of solar energy and operating in "island mode", whereby critical loads can be provided even when grid power is disconnected.
