Vanadium redox battery Market: Definition and Introduction
Vanadium is a naturally occurring chemical material having ability to exist in solution in four different oxidation state to store chemical potential energy. The vanadium redox batteries utilize the same property of vanadium to act as a rechargeable flow battery, which can be used for relatively high cell voltage.
The electrolyte of this redox battery is prepared by dissolving vanadiumpentoxide in sulfuric acid. The batteries are well suited for their application in highly variable generation sources such as wind or solar power, as well as for large power storage applications. Key Characteristics of vanadium redox batteries include limited self-discharge, ability to fully cycle, extremely rapid response, among others.
One of primary application of vanadium redox battery is in military electronics owing to its limited self-discharge where it can be stored for long period of time with small maintenance. Moreover, vanadium redox batteries are also widely used in general E&E industry, variable generation sources, transmission constrained regions, automotive, in telecom industry and many more.
Considering the important aspects of their application growth, the market for vanadium redox battery is expected to increase with significant pace over the forecast period.
