Cowboy, I looked over their ‘Pitch’ and IMO it falls flat. They are not able set their flow battery apart from any other VRB. What they do claim is of dubious vale such as “Independent from its solar storage capabilities, the StorEn battery module can store power from the grid at night when electricity prices are low. By using battery power during peak electricity times, clients can save money on their utility bills. Additionally, in the event of an emergency, our patent pending battery design guarantees continuity to vital devices such as telecommunication, lighting, refrigeration, and heating and ventilation systems.… Read more »

I agree Griffin. I wasn’t interested at all, but I figured that I would throw it out there. I do believe that we are in the correct area for investment for the near future and it’s comin fast ! Best part is that we were here early in VRB’s and Vanadium. The future is bright my friend !….Cowboy

Lithium is still getting the nod but at some point VRBs will become the obvious choice. Zinc-Air will be a close second, I think it will take the zinc-air longer to get the market they deserve. That said the 4/3/18 press release from MGX was a little disturbing not that they are going to spin off the batteries, but the use of electric motors as being important, that just seemed irrelevant and off the topic. I’m going to reduce my position in $MGXMF and accumulate more $STNUF and hope to get back to my position later. A move IMO woul;d… Read more »

$FYI – ESA lays out the path for 35 GW of energy storage by 2025 – from todays PV mag 4/20/18

https://pv-magazine-usa.com/2018/04/20/35×25-a-vision-for-energy-storage-by-the-energy-storage-association/

“The greatest driver of an evolution from one technology to the next is generally simple: money – and that’s where ESA starts. Using data collected by Navigant Research, the report breaks down over $4 billion in savings – starting at the residential level all the way through utility scale generation, and transmission and distribution.”

$FYI – NREL and Hawaiian Electric Navigate Uncharted Waters of Energy Transformation (Part 2)

https://www.nrel.gov/news/features/2018/nrel-and-hawaiian-electric-navigate-uncharted-waters-of-energy-transformation-part-2.html?utm_source=NREL+News&utm_campaign=f86bbe8551-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_20&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_807f77e7f4-f86bbe8551-289507707

“This real-time impact in Hawaii means that the playbook Hawaiian Electric didn’t have when it embarked on its journey is now, thanks in part to the utility’s example, available to other island communities. In fact, as part of DOE’s Energy Transition Initiative, NREL developed and maintains the Islands PlaybookPDF, a step-by-step, action-oriented guide that provides a replicable framework for energy transition—including lessons learned from the laboratory’s work in Hawaii. “

Financing! The Bane of new technology. This will probably be the only path to success in batteries for the near future, until these sights are proven to actually work.
This is what Siemens is doing with AES, acting as the bank for projects thru their Fluence partnership, (private company) They did this because they realized banks weren’t going to lend money for an idea.

ON another note, how’s that leg of yours, Cowboy? Ready to Do-si-do at the Cantina?

Interesting concept and well worth the trial.
I foresee a lot more use of micro grid use in the future. No time estimate, but think of the cost savings alone to utilities by not having to buy right of ways and run that power line to “off the grid” locations.

I must also add, that I hope that it has a long uninterrupted life and trial in an affordable housing project. Not trying to be mean, but……….

Nice to change name to reflect vertical integration from mining to sales, but I’m not sure how far away they are from any actual mining. Even Trans World Airlines was named before it traveled around the globe, so I’m impressed with their thinking. I would really be interested in knowing about how long it would take to get the mine up and running, and see if there is any infrastructure in place or available. Try as I might I could not find any information regarding actual mining times. I placed a very small bid today, because of it’s current abilities… Read more »
