Energy systems with high penetrations of intermittent renewable energy sources
face great challenges when it comes to demand-supply balancing and power
The vanadium battery technology may offer solutions to this by
providing both energy storage and power system services.
This paper presents the recent research activities on vanadium battery
technology integration carried out at Ris๘ National Laboratory.
battery has been installed in a research energy system SYSLAB.
It has been
characterized and its capabilities for the balancing of wind power have been
A small simulation case study (based on the performance
measurements of the real system) is presented and the results with respect to
diesel fuel savings discussed.
