STIMULATE THE SIMPLE TRANSFER OF ELECTRONS

Redox, a contraction of reduction (a gain of electrons) and oxidation (a loss of electrons), is a chemical reaction in which electrons are transferred between chemical species. Using the same element on both sides eliminates cross-contamination issues. Unlike typical batteries that are packaged as fixed cells or modules, a flow battery has significantly more energy storage capacity, which gives the user the flexibility to address both power (the rate of electricity flow) and energy (the amount of energy stored) uses.

Technical Brief

ESS' iron flow battery technology is built to handle the intermittencies of renewables

BUILT TO HANDLE THE INTERMITTENCIES OF RENEWABLES

ESS has cracked the code to keeping traditional iron chemistry stable for thousands of deep-cycle charge and discharge cycles with no degradation. ESS’ patent-pending electrode designs allow you to operate at high flow-battery efficiency levels.
