Deliver large-scale vanadium redox flow battery-based electrical energy storage solutions to enable increasing penetration of renewables and to advance grid modernization in both the US and China, and around the globe.
Approved by National Energy Administration (NEA), the national demonstration project at the Dalian 200 megawatt (MW) / 800 megawatt hour (MWh) flow-battery peak-load-shifting power station is being implemented by Rongke Power. The station will be the largest chemical energy storage power station in the world.
To support the implementation by the Dalian Municipal Development and Reform Commission, on November 11, 2015, NEA organized experts to demonstrate the technical feasibility and applicability of using a vanadium flow battery for the proposed peak-load shifting demonstration project in Dalian.
On December 17, 2015, the NEA entrusted the Electric Power Planning and Design Institute to demonstrate the project engineering plan and investment situation for a second time based on the affirmative conclusions drawn by the technical and application feasibility study.
On April 14, 2016, the NEA approved the construction of Dalian flow battery energy storage peak-load shifting power station; listed the project as a demonstration of a national chemical energy storage peak-load shifting power station; and determined to explore a new price mechanism for energy storage technology according to the two-part price mechanism of pumped storage, thereby establishing a new guideline for the project.
By the end of 2018, Dalian Rongke Power Co., Ltd and Dalian Concurrent Energy storage Power Station Co., Ltd have completed 30% of the project’s intended production of energy storage power integration, utilizing their own funds.
By February 2020, the EcoPartnership has co-developed two project series, including ReFlex and TPower product series, as well as six projects, three of which have been completed (i.e. the project in Australia, the demonstration project in Nanrui, China, and the project in Shangluo, Shaanxi Province, China) with the rest under implementation (i.e. two wind-farm energy storage projects in China and an energy storage project in California).
