Flow battery based on PNNL chemistry commissioned

Officials are celebrating the installation of the world's largest containerized vanadium flow battery storage system by capacity, which uses electrolyte chemistry developed at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, PNNL's Jud Virden and others are gathering today at the headquarters of UniEnergy Technologies, also known as UET, whose advanced vanadium flow battery was recently installed at a Snohomish PUD substation near Everett, Wash.
