Renewable Energy

More energy from the sun reaches the earth in a single hour than humanity uses in an entire year. Photons hit the silicon in a solar panel and dislodge electrons as an electric current. The sun’s rays also warm the earth, causing air to rise and generating wind currents that we can harness with wind turbines.

We can capture this variable energy with energy storage, and convert this free fuel into nearly limitless clean electricity. Pu Neng’s Vanadium Redox Battery Energy Storage System (VRB-ESS®) can charge and discharge throughout the day to balance the variable output of solar and wind generation.

Flow batteries are poised to dominate the utility-scale storage market for wind and solar integration. The technology is better suited to the deep discharge applications that require four to eight hours of storage per day. VRB-ESS deliver an almost infinite number of cycles over more than 20 years, yielding the best, most sustainable lifecycle economics.
