New York City To Create Smarter Energy Storage Systems

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 10.35.13American Vanadium announced it will partner with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority to demonstrate the CellCube™ vanadium redox flow energy storage system. 
 The project will demonstrate how vanadium flow battery technology, capable of multi-hour and multi-megawatt energy storage, can enable NYC commercial buildings to be “smarter” about how and when they use energy, and provide resiliency in times of need. NYC is hoping to avert another power breakdown such as that which happened during superstorm Sandy.

The Canadian company American Vanadium which controls the only vanadium mine in the United States provides a critical source of North American sourced vanadium electrolyte for CellCube energy storage systems. CellCube is built by the Austrian Company Cellstrom in which Gildemeister, a century old machine tool company, has a majority share hold. Gildemeister also has a strategic partnership with Japan’s DMG Mori Seiki.

“New York is clearly creating a leading energy storage marketplace and the knowledge gained from this demonstration will help realize gains in building and grid energy efficiency, save money for electric ratepayers and, importantly, add a new weapon to the arsenal of resiliency tools in the event of future grid outages,” said Bill Radvak, President & CEO of American Vanadium Corp.

The CellCube™ is a fully commercial energy storage system that has been sold and installed across Europe, Asia and Africa, with more than 60 systems currently in operation at customer sites worldwide. The CellCube™ system is modular and can serve loads from 10kW to multi-MWs and, as a flow battery, the system excels at providing multiple hours of energy for long-duration requirements.

Dr. William Acker, Executive Director of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology consortium (NY-BEST), stated, “New York State is actively pursuing commercially ready technologies that will help grow a clean energy economy and improve the reliability, efficiency and overall performance of our electric power delivery system. This project will demonstrate the important role energy storage can play in helping consumers save money, reduce peak load demands and provide the grid serving New York with stored energy during times of shortage or disruption.
