PV Magazine: Gelion to store solar power at Acciona’s testing field
By Pilar Sánchez Molina, Madrid: Spanish renewable energy company Acciona Energía will test the zinc bromide battery technology developed by Anglo-Australian manufacturer Gelion at its photovoltaic testing plant in Navarra.
The project is part of the I’mnovation program, which Acciona Energy launched to assess emerging energy storage solutions through collaborations with companies from around the world.
Ten energy storage companies participated in the program and four were selected to test their technologies at Acciona’s facilities, including Gelion. The selected startups will have the opportunity to test their technologies for a period of between six months and one year at the 1.2MW Montes del Cierzo experimental photovoltaic plant in Tudela, Navarra, starting in July 2022.
If the tests with Acciona Energía are successful, Gelion’s Endure battery will form part of the European company’s supplier portfolio as a renewable energy storage provider.
