Ashlawn Energy, a recognized leader in the energy storage industry, presented The Painesville Ohio Flow Battery Project to a record-breaking audience at the Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Storage Systems Program annual conference in Washington, DC.
The vanadium redox flow battery is a regenerative fuel cell capable of storing energy in multi-megawatt ranges for durations of hours to days from input sources such as the grid or renewable energy resources. Ashlawn’s energy storage system represents transformational technology that reduces carbon emissions, improves power plant efficiency, and will create new domestic high-technology manufacturing jobs.
Joseph Startari, Program Manager for Ashlawn Energy, briefed the capacity crowd at the Washington Marriott on the Painesville storage project status and fielded questions from the review panel. Norma Byron, President of Ashlawn Energy is encouraged by the interest in project “Ashlawn Energy is committed to leading the field in energy storage solutions and creating high-tech manufacturing jobs in Ohio.”
The conference was chaired by Dr. Imre Gyuk, the program manager for Energy Storage Research (ESR) at DOE.
Ms. Rita McMahon, City Manager for Painesville, OH, and Mr. Paul Morton, Generation Supervisor, Painesville Municipal Power Plant, joined the Ashlawn team to meet the DOE program sponsors.
The City of Painesville (Lake County, OH) owns and operates Painesville Municipal Power, a 32 megawatt coal-fired power plant that provides electrical power to Painesville and surrounding areas.
In November 2009, the US Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory announced the award of a Smart Grid demonstration grant to the City of Painesville under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The Smart Grid program supports power grid modernization throughout the United States.
