Protean Energy begins work on vanadium battery project through South Korean subsidiary

Proactive Investors Thursday, 29 November 2018
Protean Energy Ltd’s (ASX:POW) 60%-owned subsidiary KORID Energy has started work on a 1 megawatt/4 megawatt-hour vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB). The battery is being constructed in conjunction with the Korean Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning (KETEP) to demonstrate the most efficient vanadium battery solution for eventual mass production in South Korea. It will also serve as a basis for developing an industry standard for vanadium batteries in Korea. KORID recently received a funding commitment of $3 million from KETEP to install and run its patented V-KOR stack technology as part of the overall $9.7 million vanadium battery project.

This improves battery performance and lowers manufacturing costs compared to conventional VRFB technology. KORID is developing the battery stack technology for large-scale electricity grid battery installations and considers the start of work a significant milestone.
