EnStorage a developer of large scale energy storage devices backed by leading investors that include Warburg Pincus, Canaan Partners, Greylock Israel, Wellington and Siemens TTB announced the first ever grid connected Hydrogen-Bromine (HBr) flow battery.

The 50 KW battery was connected at the company’s test site in southern Israel and provides up to 100 KWh of energy.

EnStorage flow batteries utilize HBr and H2 as storage chemicals. Abundance of these materials reduces the chemical cost by 95% compared to other batteries, making it the most affordable flow battery in the market.

Moreover, the battery’s proprietary conversion stacks has demonstrated over 3 times the power densities compared to other batteries, making it smaller and lower in cost.

Following the recent success of the 50KW unit, EnStorage is now moving forward with the next milestone of a 150KW, 6 hours of storage, commercial unit.
