ESS, Inc. (ESS), a leading manufacturer of safe, low cost, and long cycle-life flow batteries for long-duration storage applications including microgrids and time-shifting renewable energy resources, will be showcasing their All-Iron Flow Battery (IFB) system at Intersolar North America (booth #8229). ESS' long duration (6+ hour) flow battery provides a cost effective innovative solution to a growing number of challenges on either side of the utility meter.
As part of the Intersolar exhibition, CEO Craig Evans will give a presentation during the Long-Term Storage Solutions session, Tuesday, 11 July at 2 p.m., which consists of several presentations on the limitations of lithium-ion batteries, particularly when it comes to providing cost effective long-term energy storage.
The company recently announced the delivery of its energy storage systems for deployment in a microgrid for the US Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, ESS has systems shipping the next two months for UC San Diego, California (US) as well as a renewable energy facility in Lubbock, Texas (US) where DNV-GL will perform third party validation on the IFB as it shifts both solar and wind power daily.
ESS is taking orders for their IFB for commercial, utility, and military customers and will soon announce steps it is taking ramping to volume production of the 50kW/400kWh IFB systems that will address both behind-the-meter, and in-front of the meter utility scale multi-MWh applications.
