Including in the UK:

Approved: 5MWh vanadium batteries for Energy Superhub Oxford showcase in England

The flow batteries are to be hybridised alongside lithium-ion battery storage… The project is designed to showcase rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging, hybrid battery energy storage systems, low carbon heating and smart energy management.

Neil O’Brien, executive chairman at redT, said, “Non-degrading, heavy-cycling energy storage has a key role to play in the decarbonisation of the world’s major population centres…”
