Zinc Redox Flow Batteries Can Replace Gas Turbines for Peaking Power on the Grid, Says New White Paper.

Every power grid must have extra electrical capacity to handle peak power demand. Simple cycle gas-fired combustion turbines (CTs) have historically provided much of the nation’s electrical peaking capacity. The cost of energy storage from flow batteries is now converging with the cost of combustion turbines when four hours or less of peaking capacity is required. This represents a large new market for multi-hour flow battery energy storage.
