Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries beat lithium-ion regarding carbon footprint

Feb. 8, 2023
A life-cycle assessment study initiated by the global technology leader CellCube, reveals that Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries excel with a highly favorable environmental footprint for large-scale energy storage solutions compared to li-ion batteries.

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are important puzzle pieces of the energy transition – the technology even accelerates the roll-out of Solar/PV and wind power deployments. Lithium-ion and Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB) are the two key BESS technologies that dominate the battery energy storage market.

Download a new study comparing the CO2 impact of the technologies and showing the significant differences regarding the carbon footprint over the lifecycle of the systems: VRFBs offer a highly favorable environmental footprint for large-scale energy storage solutions compared to the more wide-spread lithium-ion battery technology.
