Invinity to launch flow battery prototype

Storage space programmer Invinity Energy Systems is to deploy the very first prototype of its next-generation flow battery at a site in British Columbia, Canada, early next year.

The project has actually been funded partly by a CAN$ 0.5 m award from the BC Centre for Innovation & Clean Energy (CICE).

The support will support the manufacture and also implementation of a 1.2 MWh prototype of Invinity's next-generation vanadium flow battery (VFB), code-named Mistral, at a site near Invinity's engineering and also procedures centre in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Anticipated to be operational in H1 2024, this will be the first Mistral product deployed as a pilot in the field, the firm stated.

The prototype will be examined against a commercial use situation with the intention of demonstrating efficiency of the newly-developed product as a consumer encountering, fully-integrated energy storage system.

Additional details of this project are anticipated to be announced prior to the end of this year.
