Flow batteries have different characteristics to lithium-ion batteries providing longer-duration storage capabilities with limited degradation. The technology uses the flow of vanadium electrolyte across an ion exchange membrane. In a world-first ESO is combining the two technologies to create a hybrid battery energy storage system which can leverage the capabilities of both systems to maximise benefits to the electricity grid and users.
