The West Australian
A subsidiary of Australian Vanadium has completed the first phase of a trial of battery technology that could deliver a network of green charging stations for electric vehicles.
VSUN Energy is using small solar-powered vanadium redox flow batteries as EV charging stations that can be set up anywhere in Australia.
The 5-30 kilowatt-hour units can handle all the requirements of EV charging but can also be scaled to suit domestic use and large grid-scale industrial and agricultural purposes.
VSUN Energy’s business development manager Zamien Sumich described vanadium redox flow batteries as the “missing piece of the renewable energy jigsaw”.
