First Stage of Vanadium Flow Battery Storage+Solar Project in Zaoyang, Hubei Goes into Operation

On January 5, developer Pingfan Ruifeng of Zaoyang, Hubei put into operation the first stage of its combined 10MW solar PV+10MW/40MWh vanadium flow battery storage project.  The first stage totals 3MW solar PV+3MW/12MWh of storage.  Pingfan Ruifeng has led the project as investor, while Beijing NEGO leads systems integration and has provided the majority of systems equipment aside from the vanadium flow battery, which has been supplied by VRB Energy.  The project is currently China’s largest solar PV+vanadium flow battery project and will provide such services as increased efficiency of solar energy usage, load shifting, smart energy distribution, grid stability, and more.
