Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. has received an order from Nippon P.S. Co., Ltd. for a redox flow battery system (system capacity: 250 kW x 3 hours) to be installed at its head office and factory.
In recent years, as the introduction of renewable energy accelerates toward the realization of a decarbonized society, the need for storage batteries is growing for the purpose of stabilizing power systems and effectively utilizing renewable energies. There is a particularly strong need for safe and long-life storage batteries, and Sumitomo Electric has been developing and selling redox flow battery systems to meet the need.
This project is supported by the Ministry of the Environment’s subsidy program “FY2021 Promotion of price reduction of solar power generation systems or the like to achieve storage parity (Subsidies for business expenses for reducing carbon dioxide emissions),” which supports private companies in introducing self-consumption solar power generation systems and storage batteries.
